AS AN anti-abortion campaigner, I was delighted to see a letter in the Daily Telegraph (Wednesday, September 19) saying that disability is no excuse for abortion.
I am sure that Herald readers will have no difficulty remembering that they saw it first in the Plymouth Herald (Your Say, August 20) and that no-one in Plymouth has refuted our argument, but that is not my main point.
Sadly the same newspaper also reported that the murder of two police officers in London has provoked calls for the restoration of capital punishment. I am aware of the entirely coherent moral arguments in favour of capital punishment, but I feel that the risk of accidentally executing an innocent human being is sufficient to justify opposition to capital punishment.
In my opinion, anyone who opposes capital punishment without also opposing abortion has no coherent argument to support their case. They are guilty of woolly thinking.
