This paper argues that abortions are morally wrong no matter what the circumstances. The paper compares the decision to abort a fetus based on information that the baby, once born, would suffer from a handicap throughout its life to a class system where people would be allowed terminate the lives of children already born but suffering from some severe malady.

From the Paper:

"As early as 1869, the issue of abortion was hotly debated. In her publication The Revolution, Susan B. Anthony wrote, "Guilty? Yes. No matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; But oh, thrice guilty is he who drove her to the desperation which impelled her to the crime!" Still, even today the rhetoric rages on. However, babies are still dying, women are still being lied to by the medical profession, and men are still virtually blameless in the murders of America's children."
