Dear editor, Re: Resident appalled by right to life protest (letter to the editor, Nov. 18). In her letter to the editor, S. Harris implies the majority of unwanted pregnancies are the result of rape, and that the majority of abuse happens in adoptive homes. Our child was conceived in love, in a stable relationship shared by two consenting adults who were totally ill-prepared to parent. They chose us. Because they didn't choose to abort their unplanned pregnancy, we are blessed to be a family. Through the gift of open adoption, our son's birth parents witness how happy, well-loved, and cared for he is. Our birth father ended a recent email to us with these words: "Thank you for being such wonderful parents to him. It puts tears in my eyes because I am so happy that you are making his life so much better. You are both great parents. Keep up the good work and I wish you many years of happiness. Tell him I love him and I hope to see you all soon." Think about this the next time you see a pro-life life line. (Editor's Note: The letter writer's name was withheld to protect the privacy of the son and his birth family.)
