Your Letters: Clarification on earlier letter

I wish to clarify the following statement in my letter to the editor: I mentioned that shortly after I was conceived, my mother, who was almost 50, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and that I was grateful to be alive. Today, this would justify (in the medical viewpoint) a medical abortion and I thank God that I was not aborted. There is no situation that justifies taking another person's life, not if the pregnant mother was older and dying of cancer, not rape, incest, nor the age of the mother or her mental or physical status and surely not inconvenience. Nothing ever justifies taking another person's life.
