13 years of Catholic school education. 3 years teaching in Catholic schools. I never got molested. The few times I did get whacked--I deserved it and it was good for me. When I was young, the nuns did scare me--but I was a little kid and was afraid of everything. The nuns who taught me were energetic and really caring. They were awesome. The older I am, the more I appreciate the sacrifices made by those called to religious life. There have been spectacular exceptions, but many, many priests and nuns are humble heroes.
I guess I'm an extremist, Jeff. At this stage of the game, a pro-life platform is the only reason I'm still a republican. If they lose that, they lose me. I'm really disappointed in this article. I usually agree with you. I can't believe that you could take such a relativistic view of abortion. It's either objectively moral or it isn't. As in the case of any type of killing, there may be mitigating circumstances which lessens the perpetrators guilt, but it is still an evil (yes, there's my extreme religious bent showing) that the child suffers. It is the first right in the Declaration for a reason. If you are denied the right to life, you are denied all the other ones that follow it.

What if your next-door neighbor that it was a private thing to kill you? How can you possibly say "privacy" is more important than life?

You're comparing apples and oranges. Children, or any innocent person, killed unintentionally in war is not the same as killing a specific child on purpose. Whether this war or that was really is a necessary defensive action is always open to debate. There is never any debate about the possibility that the mother, or other innocents, will die a violent death unless she kills her baby. War, as a defensive action, is a way to protect innocent lives. Abortion NEVER saves anyone's life.
