Re: "Silence no more," Jan. 17

To the Editor:

I do not typically feel compelled to respond to articles innocuously labelled as "News Briefs," usually reserving my diatribes for opinion pieces. But in the case of Friday's news brief "Silent No More," I'm going to make an exception.

While cleverly disguised as a progressive campaign, "Silent No More" is in fact no more than a front for pro-life groups trying to make women who have chosen to have abortions feel guilty.

This "post-abortive syndrome" of which Carolynne speaks does not actually exist, and I challenge anyone who thinks otherwise to find reference to it in a credible medical or psychological journal.

Thus, if the syndrome doesn't exist, it follows logically that women who have had abortions do not require "healing," especially the kind being offered by the Roman Catholic Diocese of London.

I strongly encourage women who are looking for genuine community support to contact the Women's Issues Network in Rm. 258 of the University Community Centre.
