Whose Body?

Dear Editor,

In response to 'Abortion protest', 'World, IN BRIEF', PAGE 31, 15th November 2017.

'Thousands of women marched through Rio de Janeiro streets shouting:
"Our bodies are ours!"'

Yes, of course their bodies are theirs.

But, who does the developing body of the child growing within the body of the unwilling mother belong to?

Does NOT this body belong to the innocent child?

Who then, has the 'right' to steal from the child, the body of its own innocent life?

Yours sincerely,

Alan Mitter
