NYT Opinions page: Abortion, Unborn Victims

Some great letters to the editor on abortion in the latest (Monday) New York Times. Here is a piece of my favorite one:
The fundamental tenet behind pro-choice groups' ideology is to defend a woman's right to choose. To choose what? If her right to choose is whether or not to have her baby once she is pregnant, then why not fully fight to support the Unborn Victims of Violence Act? ... She has chosen to have her baby, and somebody else tried (or succeeded) in nullifying that choice. Pro-choice activists should be out in droves defending every woman's choice, be it abortion or childbirth.
This was essentially Brian's point when I posted on this issue a few weeks ago. (Sorry, too lazy/busy to link right now.)
