I’ve addressed nearly every argument related to abortion at this point, except this one. I thought about it this weekend after Hillary Clinton announced her VP selection. She chose a guy named Tim Kaine who, although he votes like a rabid abortion enthusiast, still claims that he’s “personally opposed” to the procedure. As a “practicing Catholic” he says abortion is immoral, yet he still supports a “woman’s right” to get abortions.
This is a very popular stance. In my experience, a lot of “personally pro-life” folks feel this way. In fact, polls show that a majority of the people who support “abortion rights” will not necessarily claim that abortion is morally acceptable. I suppose this view is seen as some kind of compromise between the dark evil of abortion and the unassailable rightness of the pro-life side. The people in this category feel like they’re the most reasonable adults inThis post was originally published on this site
