Methodist minister: Abortion is “not violence”

From pro-abortion Methodist minister John M Swomley:

“Abortions after implantation are of two kinds: one is medically induced by pill, and the other surgically induced, in each case with the request or consent of the woman. Most of us do not believe consensual medical and surgical action is violence.”
