This is “Perspective” – – news and information from Family Policy Network. I’m Bob Ditmer.

Pro-abortion advocates often talk about making abortion legal, safe and rare. But why “rare”? If there is nothing morally reprehensible about abortion, why should it matter if they are rare or common?

The fact is the language belies the knowledge of the immorality of abortion. The unspoken question being asked is whether abortion is murder. If abortion is murder, the course of action is obvious; Ban it.

If abortion is not murder, then why all of the posturing to reduce abortion numbers? If it is morally permissible, why should they capitulate to the pro-lifers’ demands?

As science advances each year, the window to the womb becomes clearer and clearer. It is becoming more and more untenable to deny that the unborn are fully human and fully deserving of protection under the law.
