A Jesuit Writes about Abortion....

And mentions Plato while he does it!  I've been enjoying the series of articles over at the blog Whosoever Desires.  In part one, Anthony Lusvardi discusses why opposition to abortion is an essential issue to Catholics, and in fact to all Christians who claim to take the New Testament seriously.  In the second essay, he discusses why our theological opposition to abortion must lead to practical opposition.

An clearly argued, even-tempered set of pieces.  I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.  Besides, he uses PLATO to make his point.  How much cooler can you get?

Theological and practical opposition to abortion recently collided at a Caltholic Hospital in Pheonix. http://ncronline.org/blogs/grace-margins/st-joseph%E2%80%99s-hospital-phoenix-desert
