To the editors:

I've read the Jean Peterman story in the January 23rd Reader ["A Woman's Choice"]. I am not only convinced this battler is essentially right but that the American people are overdue terminating this distressing war over the issue of abortion.

Basketball isn't my game but the term "full court press" suits something deep in me. That's what we need to look for from the "right-to-lifers." They should be into a full court press to make this a world in which no woman could find a good excuse for having an abortion.

When the right-to-lifers move forward on all fronts with this end in view, Women with child but the circumstances not right, will think 70 times 7 before giving business to an abortionist.
