Column on abortion took an 'interesting approach' [Letters]

I applaud Ms. Santo's article on making abortion illegal, and I commend the Columbia Flier for printing it. The article took an interesting approach in not only recognizing the tragedy of abortion, but in looking at its effects on society.  

As Ms. Santo stated, no civilized society would kill their most vulnerable members. So what kind of society are we? We are intelligent and, hopefully, compassionate, so why have we chosen a very brutal method to solve our unwanted pregnancies? 

I don't believe most of us really understand what goes on in an abortion or maybe we don't want to understand. I also believe, however, that we are inherently good, and if the womb were transparent, 54 million babies would still be alive.
