To the Editor:
Posting the letter from Chris LaRose was an astoundingly irresponsible thing to do.
Passing off questionable and biased "research" as medical advice and printing it is beyond reckless on your part.
Many uneducated North Country women will read that and not realize that the "facts" presented were from a survey funded by an anti-abortion group and
that common research practices were not employed. That is to say, the research conducted was done with the understanding of what the results would
be ahead of time.
There was no peer revue of this "study." This is propaganda, and certainly not science or sound medical advice. Many women will not understand this and
take that letter as fact.
People are entitled to their opinions, but not their own facts. If LaRose is offended by birth control, he/she should have written that.
Threatening women with breast cancer if they use birth control is a hateful thing to do, and a regression in science and the human experience.
