Women Should Determine What Is Best for Them

RECEIVED Mon., Dec. 8, 2003

Chris Danze is the proverbial "boy who cried wolf" come to an abysmally ignorant realization ["Women Dig In," News, Dec. 5]. As men we can never know what pain and regret women experience when it involves children. Aside from the physical pain, the emotional turmoil that is involved with abortions is something no man could ever fathom. I give credit to Danze's adherence to his convictions. But those who believe that a woman should have a right to govern her own body need to show that conviction doesn't get drowned out by the "crying wolf" that Danze and those of his ilk are bellowing. As men we owe it to women to show them the ultimate respect by letting them determine what is best for them.
