Abortion victimizes

"Anti-abortion logic" (May 22 Letters to the Editor) brought up the topic of abortion in the hard case of incest. Even though less than 1 percent of abortions performed in Kansas are hard-case abortions, one must consider the worst-case scenarios.

However, the letter writer and like-minded people need to acknowledge that abortion never undoes the rape or the incest. Abortion only further victimizes the victim.

In the case of incest, abortion can protect the criminal father or stepfather, enabling him to repeat the crime, leaving a series of dead babies and subjecting the dependent young girl to long-term emotional abuse and possibly physical harm from the abortions.

It would be far better for all involved in rape and incest cases if the baby were put up for adoption (unless the mother wants to raise the child) and the criminal father were dealt with by the justice system. In a civilized society, an innocent person should never have to die for the crime of another.

I congratulate the 2011 Legislature and Gov. Sam Brownback for moving Kansas toward being a more civilized society.
