In regard to the letter, “Freedom of Religion,” printed Nov. 6, I have to write a response.

Semantics can be a confusing subject. The writer objects to being called pro-abortion if one believes in a woman’s right to choose.

In using the word choice, perhaps one can hold a murder weapon up to an intended victim, someone who has been born, and say that one is going to choose not murder. And then use the weapon.
