My thanks to the Herald for having the courage to print Laura Hollis’ excellent piece exposing the many false arguments about abortion and the mischaracterizations of pro-life people. (“Planned Parenthood peddles abortion untruths,” Nov. 26). It is hard to understand in an age of ultrasound how anyone can deny our common humanity with the child in the womb. The unfair characterizations of pro-life people frequently found in the media make me wonder if any fair-minded journalists have ever had a conversation with the many volunteers who give their time to come to the aid of women with untimely pregnancies. The hallmark of a great society is the compassion it shows toward its most vulnerable members. Kudos again to the Herald.
