In “Where’s Pelosi’s love of unborn?” (Letters, July 8), the writer asks why Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi supports abortion when she expressed great sympathy and compassion for the thousands of illegal immigrant children entering our country. The answer is simple. She does not support or advocate abortion. However, she supports the constitutional right, as expressed in Roe vs. Wade, of women to terminate a pregnancy if this is what they want to do. She does not support abortion as the writer claims, but supports the law that gives women the right to choose. It’s called pro-choice, and this right to choose must be afforded to all women in a free society.
