A recent letter writer called on President Obama to propose federal funding for poor women's abortions ("Poor should have pregnancy options," Jan. 19).
The letter pointed out the severe financial distress that pregnancies can cause poor women. But as a pro-life Catholic, I would find it distressing to see my tax money used to fund abortions.
It is disconcerting, however, that the same political party that would prevent my tax money from being used to fund abortions also restricts funding for social programs that could help these same women.
