Abortion and our Attitude to the Foetus

Abortion and our Attitude to the Foetus

Abortion remains an emotive issue in theology and politics. This article makes the case for seeing our assessment of the foetus as determinative on the issue. It examines various “pro-choice” (pro-abortion) arguments which see the foetus as human, and concludes that Christians must stress not only the humanity of the foetus but also the sacredness of all human life in order to be properly heard in the debate.

From Churchman 119/3 (2005) and also on The Theologian.
