Letters to the Editor

Letter: Our beating heart Letter: Show us the facts please, minister Letter: Urgent action needed on legal highs Letter: Students need to be treated equally Letter: Ko deserves funding while finding feet Letter: Policy should always beat popularity Letter: Growth in bike use can only be good Letter: Provinces forgotten come election time Letter: PM should reveal his incomes, taxes Letter: More bikes good for car drivers

OPINION: Tracey Steel (Letters, Jan 18) is correct in pointing out the obvious - that women don't have to be married to have children.

One of the biggest contributors to our present social mess has been the birth of children to women who are either unmarried or else living in sin with a man.

Now we're expected to agree that this is perfectly normal and proper, even if single mothers have decided to be kept by the taxpayers indefinitely as a valid lifestyle choice, or if children in de facto families are insecure and uncertain all round, as many are.
