Not all women are meant to, or want to, be mothers

The Dec. 4 article about Right to Life members filing 626 consumer complaints against an abortion provider prompted me to write this letter.

How many stories do people have to read about abused children, children who are murdered, children who have no parental support, before people understand that not all women are meant to be mothers, or care to be mothers? Why should such females be forced to have a child?

Would each of these people who filed complaints be willing to adopt a baby given up for adoption because it was unwanted or the mother couldn't financially care for it?

Get real. There are too many of us on the planet already. A woman should have the right to terminate a pregnancy if she makes that decision. Abortion clinics need to be available to assist her in this procedure.
