7 thoughts on “A Debate on Abortion”

  1. Steve Miller says:

    The last few back and forth comments are most incisive and illuminating…is the unborn human? does good law prohibit that which is not only immoral, but evil? Yes it does…

  2. Peter G. says:

    That was really helpful. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Nate says:

    I don’t think there was anything new brought forth to the debate by these two. I think Nadine Strossen’s opening statement asserting that she is not going to change her opinion on this issue nor will those who agree with her sums up the argument. The question I would have asked her since she was standing on court evidence was whether she would support state’s right should Roe v Wade be overturned by the Supreme Court or would she then attempt to fight to have it reinstated. I thnk that would clarify her contention that she wants abortions reduced.

  4. Ryan K. says:

    I think Nadine is wrong. Scot and others like myself would gladly change my opinion if you could prove that the unborn are not human.

    The problem is that the pro-abortion side wants to ignore the facts on this side, and not change their minds when the science is against them.

  5. J. Clark says:

    They don’t change their minds because the issue is not facts but sin. “..the futility of their minds..”

  6. Nadine states that law cannot have a religious base in our pluralistic society, but all law is inescapably based on views of right and wrong and religion. Even when you make the law secular, you are espousing a religious view that God’s Law is irrelevant to culture and society.
