Why Can’t We Be Good?
“Our society simply has no generally acceptable solution to the ethical dilemma of abortion. So here is a test for us. This is ethnics. We are in front of a painful and

The end to the war between whether abortion is good or bad will never end because it is based on a personal opinion and it is the woman’s choice on whether she wants it done or not.
