The April 28 letter More abortions criticizes the new Florida law denying state taxpayer money to groups that kill unborn children. It says that because contraceptives would be less available, more unplanned pregnancies and abortions would result. However, he fails to distinguish between contraception and other forms of birth control, such as the morning-after pill, Norplant and intrauterine devices, which can cause the death of the newly conceived child.
The new law is not targeted against contraception, but against groups that provide surgical abortions and the forms of birth control which cause chemical abortions.
