Obama and Clinton on abortion, here.
I believe that the potential for life begins at conception,” said Mrs Clinton. But for me, it is not only about the potential life, but the other lives involved…
Mr Obama said he did not know whether life begins with conception.
“This is something that I have not, I think, come to a firm resolution on… I don’t presume to know the answer to that question,” he said.
One position is utilitarian, the other, ill-informed and evasive. But this would be the dividing line in the pro-abortion camp these days, I think. Those who know when life begins and don’t care, and those who maintain life does not begin at conception but rather at some other magical moment, arbitrarily chosen.by
