I am planning to write an editorial in response to an article in the newspaper published at my university.
The title of the article is “Abortion not a Tragedy: Good Decision in Tough Times” by Bonnie Erbe. Here is a quote: “…can we agree that this couple’s decision not to bring forth a child into the world when they are having trouble feeding themselves and three children is no tragedy? It’s actually a fact-based, rational decision that in the end benefits the three children they already have and society as well.” I would link the article, but I can’t find it online.
At the moment, I am planning to cite the financial implications of treatment for breast, cervical, ovarian, and liver cancer; as well as other detrimental medical effects of abortion. The length is limited to 350 words, but I am going to try to fit as much as possible about the moral implications as well. I feel that references from an impartial source would be most effective because of the non-Christian audience.
Thanks for any information and constructive advice.
