Abortions Of Last Resort

February 18, 1990

Many of us who oppose abortion have not been led to our position by religious indoctrination or coldhearted indifference to the plight of women in crisis. Rather, a basic understanding of the development of the pre-born human, and what happens to him or her during an abortion, leads to an unsettling conclusion: This is a primitive and Draconian procedure at any stage, especially during the second and third trimester. There have to be more humane solutions to these wrenching problems than dismemberment and disposal of human life on such a colossal scale.
