The New York Times > Opinion > Abortion and Civility in the Senate (6 Letters)

"To the Editor:

David Brooks puts his finger on the crux of the issue when he asserts, 'Religious conservatives became alienated from their own government, feeling that their democratic rights had been usurped by robed elitists.'

A religious conservative who doesn't want an abortion is not denied any rights under Roe v. Wade. There lies the problem: religious conservatives think that it's their democratic right to deny other people their right to get an abortion.

Baldwin, N.Y., April 21, 2005"

Very well stated.

Mr. Peskoff was reacting to this, in which David Brooks makes the case that Roe v. Wade will have to be overturned in order for things to get better.
