Letter to editor stock photo blue paper and pen

I was very disappointed with the manner in which the writer of the article "Pregnant in Prison" described this pregnant woman: waddled, watermelon, loose skin, etc. The words were very crass, derogatory, and just plain mean. I expected better from this paper. In this day and age we don't need writers publicly bashing a pregnant woman's appearance, what we need is words that describe the miracle of life that is happening in this woman's body, and give this woman the respect she deserves.
