Letter: Access to abortion

Sir: Frank Dobson told BBC television news on 19 January that he believes in easier access to earlier abortions because early abortions are "less upsetting mentally".

Is this what we have come to? Right is something we feel good about, and wrong is something we feel upset about?

Making abortions easier does not make abortion right. What we need to consider is not whether abortion is emotionally acceptable, but whether it is morally acceptable.
