Regarding “Care for families,” Dec 6, Page 27: 

The letter writer who defends Planned Parenthood, the ACLU and Catholics for Choice against Richard Doerflinger’s castigating them for their response to a United Nations declaration regarding the family then goes on to commend these organizations for their opposition to the ill treatment of families on our southern border. 

The writer correctly observes that “What is happening at our border violates human dignity.” However, Planned Parenthood destroys the lives of thousands of children yearly and the other two organizations defend that horror. Does the writer not see this contradiction?
