Rev. Debra Haffner "Abortion as a Moral Decision"

http://www.americanprogress.org/site/pp.asp?c=biJRJ8OVF&b=293787
Rev. Haffner presents important considerations for finding the appropriate balance between a woman's right to control the integrity of her moral agency and the community's regard for the sanctity of life (well I guess I'm adding the last part because it matters to me). The issue deserves thoughtful discussion, and it's complex enough that no one single narrative completely captures every aspect. We all should spend time listening respectfully, as difficult as that is, to differing points of view.
