Sample text

Abortion should be legal in — first trimester: 61 percent second trimester: 27 percent third trimester: 14 percent (Gallup, 2013) Contrast this with abortion practices in the United States: Thirty-three percent of women will have an abortion in their lifetimes. 2 million abortions are performed every year. Twenty percent of pregnancies end in abortion (40 percent in New York City). Ninety percent of fetuses diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted. 120,000 abortions are performed in the second and third trimesters.

That we can admit that the fetus is a human being but not a person means that a new Copernican revolution is already in progress.
