  1. “Indeed, some religious leaders reject abortions even when the pregnant woman was raped or the victim of incest.”

    Actually, it’s logical that if you believe a fetus has personhood that they shouldn’t be aborted just because their conception was worse than ideal. I take a more charitable view that gives autonomy to women along with education and access to contraception, as well as a strong social security net so that they can afford to keep the child if they want.

    Also, aren’t lots of embryos discarded with ART? I’m surprised the article didn’t address this.
