Instead of using sharia law in Brunei as an extreme example, as Mr. Stillwell does in his letter of May 22, perhaps we should compare our abortion laws to western European nations, most of which allow abortion only in the first trimester with specific requirements and restrictions. Some also include waiting periods and counseling sessions to improve informed consent. Very few countries in the entire world have abortion laws as liberal as the U.S. With all the scientific evidence available today regarding development of the fetus in the first 12 weeks, second and third trimester abortions are particularly inhumane and opposed by most Americans of all political persuasions (see latest Marist poll).

But the payoff was Mr Stillwell’s final argument that poor minorities will outnumber “white people” with “more resources,” if we restrict abortion. Sounds a lot like the racist eugenics theories of Margaret Sanger and Adolf Hitler!

He states, “We can do better.” I say, “Women deserve better!”
