Isn't there at least one point on which proponents and adversaries of abortion are in accord?
All are in accord in saying that abortion is always a defeat, somewhat like suicide. Two attitudes are manifest before an act which we know in advance will be a defeat. On the one hand, one can be resigned to the defeat by accepting it or even regulating it. On the other hand, one can arouse common action among men of good will to prevent the defeat. This defeat is in no way fated; it is avoidable.
