Support women's right to choose

In response to the letter "Quit morally equivocating on abortion" (Aug. 17), thank you for a letter that backs me up when I tell the moderate majority that the conservative right agenda is to not only ban abortion, but to also take away the right to birth control.

Women who don't want to end up pregnant every year, husbands who don't want to have to support a new child every year, and men who don't want to deal with paternity suits every year, need to wake up and start fighting for women's right to plan when she has a child.

In regard to the minority religious view that life begins at the moment of conception, forcing that religious view on others is unconstitutional. When an egg and a sperm meet on Saturday night, they aren't a baby Sunday morning.
