Pro-Choice author and theologian: Abortion is a “positive moral good”

By Sarah Terzo

Pro-abortion author and Christian theologian Beverly Wildung Harrison writes:

“Many people may deny what I hold to be true; that the act of abortion is sometimes, even frequently, a positive moral good for women; but those who empathize with the realities of women’s lives usually recognize that a specific choice for abortion is often the least wrong act under the circumstances.”
