National Review;6/22/1979, Vol. 31 Issue 25, p808
The article discusses the author's views on abortion. It justifies the author's stance that the fetus is human. It criticizes the notion that the fetus is just a mass of cells or a symbol to be ignored or ridiculed. It deals with the issues that can raise the abortion debate. It also enumerates the factors that a legislator must consider when voting on a law. It argues against the liberal assertion that nowhere in common law has a week-old fetus ever been defined as a person. It also discusses the background of the common law in which the law on abortion in the U.S. was based.
