What does Gloria Steinem’s assertation that “Our ability, men and women, to make decision over our own bodies is the first step of democracy” have to do with abortion (“Below the belt: Gloria Steinem mocks ‘flaccid’ Trump at Planned Parenthood event,” Web, April 4)? The matter of abortion comes down to a very simple question: At what point in a human being’s development are other humans no longer allowed to kill him or her in the most horrible way imaginable? If you refuse to give an exact point in the human-development timeline and then logically defend that as being the time when a person gains the inviolable right to life, you’re just being intellectually deceitful.
