In the March 19 Other Views article Who cares once they’ve been born?, Leonard Pitts takes an unfortunate swipe at people who advocate for unborn children in danger of abortion. It seems that there are three types of groups involved in protecting children: The first is those whom Pitts criticizes. The second is made up of people primarily concerned about born children. The last group is composed of those of us interested in the welfare of the born as well as the unborn.
I believe the latter group has the best approach because its advocates are trying to save the lives of all at-risk children. Let’s not fight among ourselves but, rather, keep in mind that united we have a better chance of saving children’s lives.
