Jonah Goldberg: Abortion rhymes with death
Let's cut the euphemisms and start debating abortion for real.
June 15, 2006
PRINCETON professor Robert George, one of the nation's leading moral philosophers, recently visited the Vatican for an audience with the pope. He faced an age-old dilemma: "What's a good gift for the pope?" George settled on Ramesh Ponnuru's new book, "The Party of Death."
Ponnuru, my close friend and colleague at National Review, has written the first serious defense of life for a general audience in decades. The book is a humane, sustained and, most of all, respectful argument about preserving life from abortion, eugenics and euthanasia.
