The Strange Double Standards of Abortion

Here‘s a post I recently wrote for one of Canada’s national newspapers, The National Post, prompted by the shooting of American abortionist George Tiller. It’s about how hard it seems to be for most of us to think straight about abortion (and how frightening it is for some people, extremists on both ends, to think straight about it).

I haven’t written or spoken much about this issue over the years, but it always lurks nearby: a huge issue that scares me at every level, including the intellectual. What are we supposed to think and do about it in a way that takes into account all the truly appropriate factors and arguments–used on every side?
