The response of the pro-choice audience to a pro-life argument appears to have gone down a little less than smoothly over at the New Statesman:
It slowly dawned on me, at about 5pm on Sunday evening, that no matter how politely, gently and sensitively the anti-abortion case is expressed in the future, people on the ‘pro-choice’ liberal-left will never want to hear it.
No, they won’t. The mainstay of their argument is there is no argument to be had. This is why debating abortion is so hard: Because so few people who are ardently in support of abortion will stand up and make any cogent arguments in favour of it that actually address the humanity angle.by
