Have We Given Up on the Issue of Abortion?

Imagine living in a country in which members of Congress would mandate researchers ‘either destroy embryos or risk imprisonment.’ Imagine a nation that not only permits the killing of the most vulnerable among us but mandates such mayhem for the purposes of research.

This problem is cited in his book Jesus […]
