I question your concern over "poor women" without at least considering the rights of unborn children. There is something wrong with our sense of values when we have more concern over issues of pollution and endangered species rather than the value of an unborn child. Who knows how many geniuses we have discarded in trash cans because we have not been willing to pay the consequences for our actions. GENE HEATHERTON Fullerton

Utah was first this year. Louisiana went last month. How many other states can be far behind? The security of women's rights guaranteed under Roe vs. Wade is vanishing under political pressure from the Bush Administration and the current U.S. Supreme Court. The Louisiana Legislature voted to override Gov. Buddy Roemer's veto and supported a punitive abortion law that will sentence offending doctors to 10 years of hard labor. Curiously, it did not impose criminal penalties for women seeking abortions.
