Dean Clark states we need to talk about abortion rationally [Rational discussion needed, Nov. 6 Letters, Langley Advance].
If we were really going to discuss the situation rationally, I believe that we've omitted a huge part - that the decision is up to the person who owns the body!
We all have choices in this life, some more socially acceptable than others, and there is always going to be someone who feels you are making the wrong one.
But really, who are they to judge? It's really nobody else's business, unless you make it their business. This decision is just as personal as what religion you choose to practice: there is no right or wrong answer.
So instead of pointing fingers and judging people who feel they made the right decision for their life, how about you focus more on yourself and what's going on with you and your family.
Make the world a better place within your own home first, before you start blaming other people for the atrocities of society.
