Free speech for all 

In a free country, university should be a place for free speech, free thought, debate and discussion.

To the editor,
The letter titled “Abort anti-abortionists” (Feb. 19, Letterhead), was most distasteful and written in very hateful language. The writer wants to abolish the right to free speech at SMU and ignore the rights of the unborn child. In a free country, university should be a place for free speech, free thought, debate and discussion. No wonder she is uncomfortable at SMU; she may be more comfortable at a university in a communist country.

---J. Patil, Eastern Passage
