Anna Haukeli (March 29 letter) seems to be confused. As a matter of fact, those choosing abortion are taking responsibility for their actions. Not only that, they’re taking responsibility for the failure of birth control, and other issues.
That Haukeli has a personal faith that a fertilized egg is a human being doesn’t make that opinion reality, nor does it make it law. Choice is about having the ability to take responsibility in a way appropriate for each individual within the law. That people don’t like that means they don’t believe in the rule of law.
As a final note, I have a question about the religious belief in abortion somehow being wrong. If one-third of all fertilized eggs are naturally aborted, how can you say that your god doesn’t support the idea?
