Importance of the Right to Vote

Abortion opinionsIn the article "Two Voices on Abortion: Women Are Victims, Says Right-to-life Head," Nov. 25, Dr. Franz is right when she says that women are victims, but then we part company. She says that "abortion is the most psychologically perilous option she [a teenager] could choose," but she fails to include the greater danger of back-ally abortion. Anti-abortionists want women to be victims either way. The allegation that those of us who support a woman's right to choose have less regard for human life than our opponents do, is wrong. The right to decide whether to continue a pregnancy should belong to the woman and should be made with information available to poor women as well as rich. Janet D. Lake, Murrells Inlet, S.C.
