Abortion and Slavery

I’m way behind in my reading and writing.

I just read this post which was written in response to the murder of abortionist George Tiller.

The author is, I believe, libertarian. Her friends, she says, are all pro-choice. Her struggle with the topic is real.

This is a reflective piece which takes seriously the parallels between the controversy over slavery and that over abortion in this country.

We cannot justify unilateral acts of violence. We can, however, understand the dynamics which lead to them.
