Pro-Choice pamphlet acknowledges abortion is “taking a human life”

A pamphlet put out by Catholics for Free Choice entitled “Abortion: A Guide to Making Ethical Decisions” says:

“It is important to understand that while abortion does involve the taking of a human life because all life that is in and of a human being is human life in order to call it murder we would have to believe that prenatal life in the early stages of pregnancy is a human person and that there were absolutely no reasons that justified the taking of that life … [However], you may feel you have reasons that justify abortion regardless of your beliefs about personhood.”
