I wish to comment on the photograph of the child holding the Stop Abortion Now placard (Free Press, Jan. 23). This child is reportedly only 3 years old.
I find it to be exploitative to use somebody who can't possibly comprehend the significance of this issue to tout one's own agenda. I firmly believe in freedom of speech but this need to perpetuate another's moral obligations by blatantly spawning young activists is gratuitous.
We should continue to foster children's awareness of world issues but remember that the degradation of their images should be left out.

You know, where I come from, that is called 'having kids'...and it is intimately related to that whole 'abortion thing'. If you "kill 'em before you birth 'em", you are not exploiting them, but take them to a rally where they are graphic examples of a 'choice', now that is exploitation. Got it. Thanks.
