"How I became pro-life" by Jennifer F.

This is nothing but a plug for someone else's post-- a former pro-choicer's very thoughtful and well-written account of how she gradually changed her mind. Her views on abortion were inextricable from her views of sex and of contraception, and she shows the process by which the entire worldview shifted. Never having been anything but rabidly pro-life myself, I was fascinated by the insight.

Never having been anything but emphatically pro-choice (although never having been,as she was,an atheist),I saw it as a sad story of compassion being twisted by illogic into accepting one of your church's most harmful teachings.Expanding the definition of "baby" to include embryos is no more sensible than expanding the definition of "marriage" to include same-sex couples.

I think Jennifer F's article addresses the question of the definition of "baby" better than I could. :)

Thanks Rachel. I found the lady's conversion enlightening.
“For it was You who created my being, knit me together in my mother's womb".
The Psalm does not say that He knit an embryo in my mother's womb, that later became me. He knit me!
