Letter to the editor: Roe v. Wade means rights for all, not just for wealthy

The new judge, Kavanaugh, is looking to sit on the big bench as a conservative and is likely comfortable in the right-to-life camp. The base seems happy with that.
Someday someone close to the Judge will leave home for college where more than half of her peers will encounter sexual abuse. Some of those will experience unwanted pregnancy. The Judge can provide anyone in or close to his family access to a safe abortion because he has the wealth required and the ability to suppress the story, keeping his image intact.
Everyone else, or the less connected people, will suffer through the consequences, will endure life as it is without Roe v. Wade or options. Some rules apply unequally. The words injustice and hypocrisy come to mind.
Alexander Lyall
