Thank you, Ruth Fee, for your passionate letter recently printed in The Bulletin. I am troubled by the violence in our culture as well.
I believe that abortion should be safe, legal and rare. Obviously our points of view are different. However, I see the opportunity to find some common ground. I would like to offer a challenge to concerned citizens on both sides of the abortion issue. How about we work together to reduce the need for abortions? Let’s guarantee access to affordable (as in free) birth control and ensure that comprehensive sex education is taught in schools? Fewer unplanned pregnancies equal fewer abortions, an outcome worth working together to accomplish.
