Nope, I never claimed moral superiority.

I have no doubt that there are many cases in which women aborted their defective or nonviable fetus after deep contemplation and emotional anguish, but I’m not sure that defective/nonviable fetuses make up the preponderance of abortions.

But I think you’re putting words in my mouth. At no point did I advocate against a woman’s right to have an abortion (or even advocate against late term abortions), I was merely noting the very complicated circumstances around abortions and how it arouses very complicated feelings in people of all ideological stripes.

I’m of a Clintonian mindset to abortions: safe, legal, and rare. I think adoption of an otherwise healthy fetus/baby should be considered as the first resort in the event of an unwanted conception. I also do not think that medical providers or insurers should face government sanction for refusing to perform/subsidize abortions because it goes against their conscience.

Like what you read? Give Jay Sun a round of applause.
