Famous Atheist Christopher Hitchens Speaks Out on Abortion

The late Christopher Hitchens said the following in Nation magazine, in April 1989:

“[A]nyone who has ever seen a sonogram or has spent even an hour with a textbook on embryology knows that emotions are not the deciding factor [in abortions]…In order to terminate a pregnancy, you have to still a heartbeat, switch off a developing brain…break some bones, and rupture some organs.”
