David Walker on Abortion
A: Yes, and I strongly oppose "partial birth abortions".
Q: You support a woman's right to choose on legal grounds, while opposing it on moral grounds; so do you describe yourself as pro-choice or pro-life?
A: I usually describe my views as "pro life" while recognizing the difference between the moral from the legal dimensions.
A: Support. From a moral standpoint, I believe abortion is wrong. I'm a practicing Roman Catholic, and not in name only. At the same time, from a legal standpoint, I believe it should be a woman's right up until the point the fetus is viable on its own. There's a difference between the moral and legal standpoints. You can't legislate morality. There's also a difference between church and state. Enforcement, in any case, should be on the physician.
