To the editors:

Your article "Prolife" by Achy Obejas last week [May 19] was one of the most offensive pieces of garbage I have ever read. These so-called "Prolife" crazies really let the cat out of the bag this time, and let us know what their movement is really about, and that is pushing their medieval religion on the rest of us. It sounded like a Jimmy Swaggart sermon. God will punish anybody who has sex unless they get pregnant. Any man who doesn't agree with them is a homosexual. I suppose next they will be talking about burning witches. Let them get back to their God--I don't want any part of that kind of religion.
