There is a trial in progress in the US that has received little publicity there and none here in Australia, yet it is critical to the abortion debate everywhere. A doctor known as Kermit Gosnell has been charged with eight murders. I don't have the time or talent to go into detail a pretty good precis is here - http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324030704578422883948238160.html?mod=WSJ_Opinion_MIDDLETopOpinion
To me the point is that abortion like euthanasia seems always to lead to results which the original proponents thought would never happen. Well it has happened, read what Gosnell called 'Snipping'. Moral questions are always difficult and none more so than abortion. Never underestimate the ability of humans to act in an inhumane manner. People wonder how ordinary people became Nazis and ran the Death Camps. How did the Rwandans and Tutsis get to stage of wholesale massacre? Well how does a well educated person do what Dr Gosnell is charged with? It happens by degree, every little step leads to another and another further. Suddenly what seemed unimaginable becomes commonplace.
