Right to life is the most important

DAVID Quinn has hit the nail on the head with his article, which is a timely reminder during this election campaign to think about the very important issue of abortion.

We could spend all our time arguing about bailouts and burning bondholders and lose sight of the fact that the right to life, the most fundamental right of all, is under threat.

I congratulate David on writing such a thoughtful piece and the Editor for publishing it.

Perhaps it might start a badly needed debate in this country -- a debate in which the people will decide the outcome with a clearly worded referendum.
