Illegal abortion means poor suffer
In Chris Dutil's letter "Grisly look inside abortion industry" May 19, the writer concludes: "He (Gosnell) is not the first, nor will he be the last abortionist whose grisly practices will come to light. . . . it will continue as long as abortion is legal."
Well, and if abortion is illegal the grisly practices will grow exponentially as poor women and, mostly, girls seek help from guys with a kitchen table and a sharp knife as in the old pre-Roe v. Wade days.
The women with money will fly to civilized countries for their abortions, but the poor, as always, will suffer and die. CHARLES HAYNES
