Francis Beckwith on Abortion

There is a fine interview over at National Review Online with legal philosopher, Francis Beckwith, on the issue of abortion.   For my money, Professor Beckwith is one of the sharpest minds out there working on the interface of law and ethics, especially on the matter of abortion, and this interview is well worth reading.  The key quotation, given Andrew Cuomo's recent statement, is this: "Will pro-lifers in New York State, including its Evangelical pastors and Catholic bishops, rise to the challenge, and stand up for the sheep that they have been called upon to guard and protect? Or will they remain mute and confirm what Governor Cuomo probably believes about the quality of their spines? Time will tell."

The MoS team discusses the broader issue on next Wednesday's Bully Pulpit.
