Even in their goriest moments, his books are grounded in rich, real-life detail.

Is an Aborted Baby Only Potential Life ?

"Obviously possibilities are important, but to blur the distinction between them and actualities is to darken counsel." The same point is made by John Stott in saying that the decision to abort for reasons of maternal health is "a choice between an actua...   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]
