To the Editor:
Catholics and other Christians are in the midst of celebrating October as Respect Life Month. Contract their free, generous, life-affirming, and multi-faceted response to an unplanned pregnancy with the response offered by the abortion industry. The first responds to the "crisis" with love for both the mother and child doing all that they can to eliminate the crisis aspect of the situation, while an abortion eliminates the child.
By taking the life of that child, they answer only a short-term challenge (continuing the pregnancy through birth and adoption placement, for example) by creating what often becomes a life-long crisis for the child's mother, father and others involved in the decision and/or the actual abortion.
