In "Reasons why abortion may be needed" (Oct. 22, Letters), the author stated two reasons why abortion may be acceptable. He claims that these two reasons to justify murder are the most prevalent, yet this couldn't be further from the truth. The truth is that more harm than good is done, as women suffer lasting effects of abortion. To find out more about the harmful effects, I suggest going to www.priestsforlife.org or checking out the Web site for the Elliot Institute (www.afterabortion.org).
Mother Teresa said it well: "It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish."
