For comment re. defence of abortion see R Zacharias, Deliver Us From Evil p97f.
- On the grounds that a woman has 'a moral right to choose', how come that same freedom in God is seen as wrong (what kind of God arbitarily lets a plane crash and thirty people die...etc.) and yet it is a woman's right to arbitarily decide on the life of a child?
- on the grounds that 'we don't know when life begins', would you plunge a pitchfork into a haystack to find a lost todler because you don't know if he is in there? 'It (ab.) is the equivalent of plunging a pitchfork into the womb because we don't know if life is there'.
