Countdown on Abortion

June 1981
National Review;6/12/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 11, p649
The article comments on the U.S. Senate debate on the passage of the Human Life Bill. The bill states that human life begins at conception but leaves the states to regulate the prohibition of abortion. It also implies that abortion is wrong. Anti-abortionists have used pictures of well-developed fetuses to invite the recognition of the unborn child's humanity. They also had argued that even the youngest embryo deserves full legal protection. They emphasize that many fetuses visibly and audibly suffer when they are killed. The evidence of life and pain is the strongest point that anti-abortionists have.
