Dear Editor,

Annihilation of innocent unborn humans is no tolerable solution to irresponsible reproductive behaviour or prenatal diagnosis of irregular foetal development.

Family planning is a matter of education, not surgery. Doubtlessly abortion was not in his mind when Minister of Education, Youth and Information Senator Ruel Reid said the formerly popular theme: “Two is better than too many.”

Women who feel uncomfortable raising a child conceived by rape may give their baby up for adoption or request assistance from charitable institutions.
