Taking Sides on Abortion Issue
Gerber is again trying to rewrite medical history. Contrary to the insinuations in his essay, many of the pro-abortion views and practices he describes were almost nonexistent in the medical profession a mere 20 years ago.
In fact, when the child, on occasion, survives an abortion, some abortionist-physicians have argued that they then have an obligation to kill it, secondarily, as an implied part of the abortion-contract made with the mother. It seems obvious then that the underlying purpose of induced abortion, as it is now practiced, is to kill the unborn child.
