It was with great interest that I read the Dec. 18 article on bogus abortion clinics.
Most pro-lifers are opposed to these clinics as they detract from genuine abortion-alternative centers, which offer counseling, clothing, financial aid and medical help to women facing problem pregnancies. These services usually are offered free of charge, while the National Abortion Federation, at its annual convention, debated whether abortions were underpriced!
It is quite ironic that the $500 million abortion industry is accusing the alternative centers of dishonesty when the "counseling" they offer is often a sham. By striking down the 1982 Pennsylvania Abortion Control Act, the Supreme Court effectively ruled that women do not have the right to know about fetal development, abortion alternatives and the possible physical and psychological after-effects of abortion, stating that such information constitutes "intimidation."
