Sir: I am delighted to hear that the Archbishop of Glasgow, Cardinal Thomas Winning, has decided to give practical assistance to all those who decide against an abortion, if the reason for the original decision was based on financial considerations (report, 10 March).
May I suggest that this approach be extended to contraception, another aspect of family life which the Cardinal can be assumed to oppose, as he must naturally support the Pope's teaching.
Anyone who decides against the use of contraception, but cannot support the children conceived thereafter, should apply to the Archbishop for practical support. I am sure that the financial means will be provided generously by those few Catholics who still agree with the papal teaching against artificial contraception.
