Don't disparage women's rights

Let's talk about the letter, “Speak out for the most vulnerable”:

1. Virtually all abortions that happen during the last trimester are done because a) something is drastically wrong with the fetus or b) the mother's health is endangered. Do some research before you imply that dozens of women do this every day.

2. The resultant child of a 12- or 13-year-old mother is painfully vulnerable if raised by a mother who is still a child.

3. Why disparage women's rights in the name of something that cannot exist for even a nanosecond outside of that specific woman's uterus?

4. To force a woman to remain pregnant and give birth against her will not only makes her vulnerable (reducing her to the status of a brood mare), it's a slippery slope to forced birthing or even worse, forced abortion.
