To the editor:
In the June 9 Journal-World, there was a commentary about abortion rights. As usual, when a person is arguing for abortion rights, he or she refers to the choice of the woman. However, the real problem with abortion as a choice is that abortion always pits the rights of a woman to choose with the rights of her unborn child to live.
I contend that the rights of the unborn child should supersede those of the woman simply because the woman does have the ability to choose whereas the child does not. The only time when the woman should be allowed to kill her unborn child is when she is raped. That is because rape takes away her right to choose. So, the only kind and civil decision and action when a woman chooses to have sex and becomes pregnant is to carry the child to delivery.
