If life begins at conception, abortion is always wrong

The title of Jenny Black's recent commentary on women's right to choose was itself an oxymoron ("Keep abortion safe, legal," Jan. 27).

What kind of a person can have such a callous disregard for human life that they would even dare to speak of keeping abortion safe? Abortion is not nor will it ever be safe.

At least one person dies with every abortion. How can an act whose sole purpose is to cut off a human life in its mother's womb be called safe?

Science has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that human life begins at conception. Only those with an ostrich mentality will bury their head in the sand and pretend the fertilized egg is not a human life. That is just a ploy to salve their conscience, rather than face the fact that they are party to the taking of a human life.
