However we might oppose it abortion is a sad feature of modern life.
Our moral religious and political traditions are united in their respect for the dignity of human life.
Whose rights will we acknowledge? Whose human dignity will we respect? For whose well-being will we as a people assume responsibility?
Abortion is defended today as a means of ensuring the equality and independence of women and as a solution to the problems of single parenting child abuse and the feminization of poverty.
The advocates of abortion on demand falsely assume two things: that women must suffer if the lives of unborn children are legally protected and that women can only attain equality by having the legal option of destroying their innocent offspring in the womb.
