If Roe Ruling Is Reversed

I wonder if Richard Lund (letter, Nov. 16) and his anti-choice buddies realize that, before there was a mother-to-be, there was a father-to-be who used that classic oldie-but-goodie baby-making line: "You would if you loved me." This statement has probably done more to further the need for abortion than any single statement in the history of womankind.

Perhaps Lund should save some of his "tender and forgiving spirit . . . for mothers-to-be" for the men and boys who, because of embarrassingly lax laws, have been given the license to make love and make life without being held accountable for either act.

When every man and every boy takes full responsibility for his sexual actions, there will be no need for abortion.
