Honesty from an Abortion Rights Supporter

Writing an op-ed piece in the NYTimes, Peggy Loonan (yes, Loonan, not Noonan) first tells her fellow pro-choicers to stop spinning the issue, and second utters this gem: "Legal abortion kills pre-viable human life. But the rights of a pre-viable human life should not take precedence over the rights of a woman."

Ms. Loonan acknowledges that abortion kills human life. On the Op-Ed page of the New York Times. Can you believe it?

Unfortunately, she follows it up by denying that the right to life trumps every other right, which it does, at least in the case of two innocent people with opposing rights.

Still... to see that first sentence in a column in the Times... wow.
