RCC Director Responds to E-mail about Child Having Nightmares from Seeing Truck

Recently, a woman wrote us this e-mail: "I am writing concerning your truck advertisements. I realize you are trying to make a point but the graphic nature of it has upset my little girl so much she is having nightmares. She has been struggling with this since seeing the truck last week.

A Kidney versus the Uterus, in Ethics and Medics, OCTOBER 2009 VOLUME 34, NUMBER 10

Earlier this year, at the University of Ottawa, I ­debated with a philosophy professor about abortion. Most of the people I debate with deny the personhood of the ­unborn on the basis of the unborn’s inability to function in ­certain ways. The professor, however, argued that even if the ­unborn are full members of the moral community, as adults are, abortion is ­permissible because pregnancy ­involves an extraordinary act on behalf of the mother.
