Opinion: It's feminist to be anti-abortion - CNN.com

"I think most women want to see a culture that respects and honors women not only for the myriad talents we bring as individuals to our professions, our communities and our country. Women also want to live in a society that, at the very same time, cherishes our shared, and indeed, wondrous capacity to bear new human life. We want to be respected for the work we do as mothers."

The right to abortion is less a representation of women's equality as an unwillingness of America to restructure society in support of caregiving.

The Conscience of the Physician

http://thechoiceblog.wordpress.com/2013/07/06/the-conscience-of-the-physician/

In today's featured article, Sister Elior Garnder, an assistant professor at the School of Philosophy at CUA, writes on the conscience of a physician who chooses to not refer a patient for an abortion. She explains how how a physician should be able to openly express his or her beliefs to a patient, and that a physican's choice to not do so may even be considered unprofessional.

Ambivalence of Pro-Life Arguments

http://thechoiceblog.wordpress.com/2013/07/05/ambivalence-of-pro-life-arguments/

Many pro-life arguments against abortion, in defending personhood, point to aspects of the unborn child such as the development of a heartbeat and fetal pain. But are these arguments based on functionality causing more confusion than answers? John Meinert, a Catholic University Doctoral Candidate in Moral Theology, examines if such arguments are doing more harm than good.
