As the debate continues in Parliament on the issue of abortion, clergyman Howard Gregory offers a sober review of the subject matter. He suggests that any consideration of abortion carries a human and experiential element that must be considered as we formulate our positions. Gregory posits that each case is different, with its own attendant challenges, and any law which tries to straitjacket the issue, and does not incorporate compassion, will prove more of a disservice than a guide. The discussion touches on economics, sexism, the Christian traditions, and crime, then arrives at a formulation that should inform the proposed law.
