In his Oct. 17 letter “Abortion: It’s a woman’s choice,” Larry Prigg criticizes Erv Hoglund for equating the terms pro-choice and pro-abortion. Priigg prefers to support the popular, politically correct nomenclature for abortion – pro-choice. He vehemently objects to the label pro-abortion. To euphemistically refer to such a stance as pro-choice or “for reproductive rights” subtly obscures what he is promoting – a woman’s ability to choose to end the life of another living human.
As a mother of five and a beginning volunteer with a local pregnancy resource clinic, I can assure Mr. Prigg that many pro-lifers are more than eager to take care of the unwanted babies. There are currently more than 1 million couples on waiting lists to adopt these infants. These babies apparently are only unwanted by the women who are inconvenienced by their pregnancies.
