Letter: My sense of loss after abortion

Sir: Suzanne Moore is to be congratulated on tackling the unpopular topic of legal abortion, and she has rightly identified that the anti- abortion lobby has set the agenda for the debate over the last 15 years. This is in part because they have more money, and have the weight of the Catholic Church behind them.

The second major factor is the way the media of the 1990s are dominated by personal interest stories rather than reasoned debate. It is therefore hard for the pro-choice lobby to interest the media in the issues which remain unresolved since the passage of the 1967 Abortion Act.
