Regarding the paper's editorial in the Nov. 9 paper regarding the pro-choice groups and how they've hurt their cause, I appreciate the paper's recognition of the lengths to which the pro-abortion zealots will go to prevent any limitations on abortion, however, I was immensely disappointed that The Advocate-Messenger still feels there are unborn babies who aren't worthy of life.
When is the "right to an abortion" justified? At least 93 percent of abortions are done merely for reasons of convenience. Primarily we are looking at unplanned pregnancies in which consenting individuals were involved with the conception. It's just not a "good time" to have a baby. I wonder how many of us were the result of an unplanned pregnancy. I'm certain we didn't always arrive at the most convenient time. You'd be hard-pressed to find any parent with regret for choosing life for any of their children. However, regret abounds among post-abortive women.
