Abortion Controversy

December 29, 1991

It is most appropriate that Caryl Rivers' commentary "It's Not Just Victims of Rape and Incest" (Commentary, Dec. 11) was placed next to a cartoon pointing out the social horror that will be the governor's proposed welfare cuts.

Rivers writes: "If (a young woman) has neither the emotional nor financial capabilities to nurture a child, should we demand that she bear a child she does not want and can't support?" A child, Rivers might have added, that society also does not want and will not support.

America's conservative course--anti-choice and anti-welfare--demands that unwanted children be born and be starved.
