Gloucester Daily Times Debate on Abortion (21), January 3, 1986

Name Calling Can Be Totally Absurd

Socialist schmocilist. Name calling is absurd. [In response to Harriet Rothstein’s two letters.] Better a socialist than a taker of human life.

Lack of substance constantly demonstrates the paucity of abortion repetend. The petulant protest, the humorless habitues of abortion culture are tiresome. Defensiveness and uncertainty mar their stance. Derisive and accusatory fingers are leveled at those who disagree. Bleating in the wind sums their intent. Mere specks in the cosmos, they know all.

Carry on as you will, only do so with dignity and grace. And have your claws trimmed next trip to Bloomingdale’s.
