ANALYSIS/OPINION:

While the writers of the special section on Roe v. Wade (Roe v. Wade Special Report, Friday) certainly have the right to their opinions, those views taken together reject the Bible’s clear position that fetuses are not persons, disregard the stance of modern science that the functions associated with personhood (i.e., the possibility of consciousness) are not possible until after 28 to 32 weeks of gestation and pay no respect to the religious liberty and freedom of conscience of women with unintended or problematic pregnancies.

Instead of attacking the Roe v. Wade ruling, opponents of abortion rights should join with supporters of reproductive choice in promoting ways to prevent unintended pregnancies, such as universal sex education in our schools and greater access to contraceptive methods.
