The GOP and abortion

Regarding the editorial "Warning Shot at GOP," Feb. 1: I find offensive the equation of opposition to abortion on the GOP platform with clinging "to zealotry masquerading as principle." Such a disparaging remark smacks of the very tone of Patrick Buchanan's speech at the convention, which the writer as well as this reader found offensive. Supporters of a particular party are not likely to agree on all issues. Insulting remarks, however, on either side of the abortion issue are unlikely to win converts. Anne Weiss, St. Petersburg, Pa.
