Abortion will stay


Re: “Life is precious,” (PostBag, Oct 10).

While in his tirade against abortion, Ye Olde Theologian says life is precious, he shows zero compassion for a teenage rape victim who may die as a result of an illegal back alley abortion.

He also makes no distinctio­n between early term or late term abortion. Does he really have more concern for a onemonth old foetus than he does for the emotional and physical well being of the woman who is carrying it?

If the pro-life people really cared they would be in the forefront of the birth control movement since according to the UN, family planning prevents over a hundred million abortions a year. As long as there are millions of unwanted pregnancie­s, abortion, legal or illegal, will continue to be a fact of life. ERIC BAHRT
