Abortion

I defend the pro-choice view with respect to the ethics of abortion. That is, I believe that abortion, even ‘late-term’ abortion, is morally permissible and should be a legally protected right.

My pro-choice stance is based on two important commitments: (i). Women have incredibly strong interests in securing abortion access and (ii). There is no good reason to believe that the fetus is a person(i.e. a being with significant moral status and rights)

Given the truth of both (i) and (ii), the pro-choice position is inescapable. Hence, it is the job of this blog to defend the commitments.
