Abortion and the Conscience of a Nation

The title of this article reminded me of President Reagan's pro-life book of the same name -- historic as the first President to publish a book while in office -- and no one hears about it because of the subject matter, and now they even try to deny that Reagan was pro-life. Then when I read the first paragraph of the article about choosing which of your children will die, I thought it was going to be about the almost sadistic way IVF doctors lure women into creating and implanting more babies than can be safely carried and then coerce the women (who desperately wanted the children) into killing one or more by "selective reduction"-sad irony is that many doctors don't even try ethical or natural means like NaPro before pushing costly IVF

Imagine for a moment that your home is invaded by thugs who will do harm to your family, or perhaps even kill them. But then one of them takes a look at your three children and offers you a sinister Faustian bargain: pick one to die and the others will be allowed to live.

Would you helplessly choose one of your own children to die so that the other two may live? Would you trust a person whose moral conscience is so far gone to even offer such a deal to live up to his end of it?
