Apathy toward abortion

Mary Sanchez (3/10, Opinion, "Abortion foes disrespect church-state separation") profoundly states "I agree with (Archbishop Joseph Naumann) that abortion is abhorrent and morally wrong." If she truly believes this, then the rest of the article makes no sense.

Abortion is morally wrong only if the fetus is a human person. Otherwise it is no different than a mole or gallbladder removal. If so, what's the fuss all about? And if the fetus is a person, then abortion stops the life of a person.

Shouldn't stopping a human life trump all other values? Sadly, in our society it does not. There are more important values and agendas such as the economy, the war and unemployment. This attitude of apathy toward the vulnerable translates into atrocities elsewhere. Articles supporting abortion, however disguised or rationalized, only further this agenda.

I watch what I do to see what I believe.

A snippet from an article (a fetus is a human being) --
Abby Johnson, former director of a Planned Parenthood center, left the organization after watching a baby being aborted, and is now working with those who prayed for her conversion.

Johnson, 29, worked for Planned Parenthood for eight years until she watched, by an ultrasound transmission, a fetus "crumple" as it was vacuumed from its mother last September.
