Letters: Pregnant with moral dilemmas

Sir: I agree with Eric Stockton (letter, 10 August) that every woman should ask herself two questions. These questions should, however, be: "do I want a child?" and "have I reasonable prospects of giving any child a fair chance in life?" If the honest answer to either of these questions is in the negative then the woman has a moral obligation to avoid sexual intercourse, or take measures to prevent pregnancy. This is the point at which every woman has the choice.
