IAN J Parsley (Writeback, October 14) wrote about abortion and the need for legislation “to ensure dignity is protected”.
Abortion, whether legal or otherwise, is the most barbaric act imaginable.
There is nothing dignified about the discarding of statistically mainly healthy, developing babies. Will the advice and services he advocates that should be available, include the potential psychological and physical damage to women who go through this procedure?
The greatest breach of human dignity is the termination of a living human baby in the very place where it ought to be protected. Contemplating abortion must indeed be a harrowing experience and there are organisations willing to help in this crisis. The act itself, however, is even more harrowing and should have no legal status in any civilised society.
