The following is a letter by William Donohue published in the New York Times on April 8, 1997:
I’m not sure I understand Naomi Wolf (“Pro-Choice and Pro-Life,” Op-Ed, April 3). She defends abortion yet admits that “it involoves the possibility of another life.” So why not err on the side of caution?
If I drove down a street full of children playing and saw a large cardboard box in my path, would it not make sense to assume that if I ran over it I might take the life of an innocent person? And would not the right choice be evident to everyone?
