Abortion - where to begin?

When it comes to certain issues, I get remarkably feisty. For me, abortion is one such issue. Since I started blogging, I've always intended to write my detailed views/arguments related to abortion. Now that I'm here, I'm at a loss of where to start - you could say I'm having trouble conceiving this post.

I've spent a lot of time meditating and reading about abortion; I've taught about it in many of my classes; I've argued against it in personal debates, in newspaper editorials, and through internet forums/blogs.

Perhaps one place to start, and one that gets straight to my heart, is that my wife and I are legally allowed, right now, to go and have our almost 8-month-old-in-the-womb daughter killed, for any or no reason at all. In fact, my wife could do it without me even knowing anything about it ahead of time (I don't often enough realize how wonderful it is to have a God-fearing, life-loving wife). There is nothing in our country's legal framework to prevent us, or even to counsel us, to consider otherwise. If my wife somehow were to go through with such a heinous act - the only possible 'official' response would be some kind of celebration of her 'fundamental rights'. So much for the moral authority of the State.

Actually when my wife was pregnant with our second son,her health was so bad that our doctor actually suggested an abortion. ...He's now just turned thirteen and while I've had moments when I've thought that post-natal abortion might be worth looking into,I'm glad that we had him......Big Al
