Why do prolifers believe that pre-born human beings are one of us?: Some resources August 3, 2015

Given the recent discussions about Planned Parenthood’s alleged selling of fetal parts and organs, and the outrage and responses that have ensued, it’s important to remind ourselves that opponents of abortion, that is, prolifers, have offered a strong case for their position. It is a case that is almost unanimously ignored by the mainstream media as well as online outlets (e.g, Slate, Salon, Huffington Post, Media Matters, etc.) that seem more gifted at issuing rhetorical flourishes rather than assessing sophisticated arguments critical of their point of view.  What follows are some of the books that make this case.

Patrick Lee, Abortion and Unborn Human Life 2/e (The Catholic University of America Press, 2010)
