Yet even prolifers, even Christian prolifers, balk at defending the life of the child conceived through rape.
Is this child any less deserving of protection?
I would suggest that these pro-lifers are more interested in stopping an evil than promoting the equality of all human beings.
What other human beings are denied their right to life for someone else's action.
When we talk about the pro-life debate as the suppression of an immoral action, it makes more sense to have exceptions. We're relativistic about behaviour all the time.
But when we talk about the pro-life debate as acknowledging the equality of all human beings, it makes much less sense.
