“Abortion a Positive, Life-Loving Choice” Says Feminist

One pro-choice feminist said the following

“Even feminists, even pro-choice activists can be heard to say, “Well, of course abortion is a terrible thing, but it’s better than…” or “Sometimes it’s necessary,” or “It is the better of two terrible choices.” Once we say yes, of course abortion is terrible, we have conceded the question, for expediency is not a sufficient moral counter to evil. In fact, there are good reasons to think that abortion is not terrible, not merely expedient. There are many reasonable, ethical people who believe that although abortion may be emotionally trying, it can be a most positive, moral, life loving choice.”
