Whether you are pro-choice or anti-choice, the fact remains that if a woman wants to terminate a pregnancy, she will find a way to do it ("After Gosnell, Md. should rethink late-term abortion," May 8). Filthy, unethical "clinics," such as the one run by Dr. Kermit Gosnell, are becoming more commonplace, unfortunately, as local legislatures continue to pass laws that make running a legal clinic just about impossible.
That, coupled with so-called "prayer groups" harassing clinics and threats to the doctors' lives and lives of their families are making even early abortions hard to get and resulting in desperate women turning to places like Dr. Gosnell's.
Again, if a woman wants to find a way to end a pregnancy, she will. As they say, abortion should be safe, accessible, and rare — a circumstance wider use of birth control could fulfill.
