Abortion an injustice

Dear Editor,Chelsea, I must respond to your letter that ran March 2, “Focus on those babies who are here.” By referring to the results of abortion as “unborn lives” lost, you recognize them as human beings, which implies certain rights, chief among them the right to live. True, some of them would have faced lives of poverty and unloving homes, but the fact remains that they are human beings whose lives have inherent value, and none of us has the right to deprive them of a chance at life.There are many loving couples who would be more than happy to adopt these “unwanted” infants, given the chance. With the numerous options available to expectant mothers, the injustice of abortion should never take place.Christin SercelCarbondale
