Abortion Fiction: Part 1 - Men in Power

In this episode we begin to respond to an opinion piece written by John Irving for the New York Times. We put Mr. Irving's reasoning to the test of logic and fact and show how his references to "men in power" and "modern diagnostic ultrasound" contradict the very premises on which he bases his idea that colonial America was more friendly to abortion practices.

We also note that Mr. Irving accuses pro-life advocates of evil intent. Yet, he never addresses the actual position that pro-life advocates claim for themselves. He never even attempts to deal with the real arguments against abortion. This is a huge elephant in the living room for Mr. Irving's article.
