Choices with life

Dear Editor,

In the July 29 issue of the Times Observer, columnist Star Parker incitingly discusses the comparison of the Lincoln-Douglas debate of 1854 to the present discussion of abortion rights.

She writes “Is our ultimate value that a woman have the option to destroy her unborn child, or is our ultimate value sanctity of life.”

May I suggest that the more important choice is omitted; that the woman’s right to conceive an unwanted child be considered.

How many abortions result from promiscuity and questionable relationships?

Charles S. Merroth,
