Discuss abortion further

Regarding the article "Conservative Republicans Call for `Culture War'," May 17: Surely it is naive for Sen. Alan Simpson (R) of Wyoming to propound that abortion is so personal that "it does not belong in the public domain." Every congressional action in favor of abortion implemented by means of tax dollars places the issue squarely in the public forum.

It is moralistic for Senator Simpson to say fiat to abortion, and then to veto any discussion of its propriety. Is not debate the hallmark of a free society? Lawrence G. Lavery, Milton, Mass.
