'Chronicle' Subpar: Pro-Lifers Want to Protect Women Even if It Means Limiting Their Rights!

RECEIVED Fri., Dec. 5, 2003

What low quality, subpar journalism! Your article about Chris Danze was appalling ["Women Dig In," Dec. 5]. Instead of portraying him as the upstanding, politically savvy, religiously sound man he is, you have to make him out to be some sort of religious fanatic and monster. That is unmitigated bunk. Stop trying to fool others into thinking that pro-life people are irrational and extreme. We want to save children's lives and protect women from the damaging effects of killing their own kin! What is so difficult to understand about that? We are pro-woman, pro-child, and pro-life! Unlike pro-abortion people, we don't believe that a woman should have the "choice" to maintain the convenience of her lifestyle by destroying the life of another after she already made the choice that led to the creation of that life! It's that simple! Your false portrayals of Chris Danze and the mistruths you used in regard to the pro-life movement are cheap, low blows that mislead and hurt others to further your backward political agenda. You should face the journalism community with your head hanging and your tail between your legs.
