So, honestly, I'd take mhaberling's argument about human specialness a lot more seriously if the social conservatives who are so opposed to abortion would take steps to deal with the economic problems that ultimately cause most people to have abortions. Ensure that people get sex education so they know what to do and not do, ensure that people have access to birth control so they aren't chained to their biology, and that would probably eliminate the need for at least two-thirds of all abortions right there.
Definitely well said! I have thought this a lot of the Catholic Church in Europe who rant on about abortion but offer not useful help to those who might keep the child is they had help. It certainly isn't any good in our modern society sitting on the sidelines and telling others what they should do. People who do that really do need to go and help out themselves.
