LONDON - Abortion is becoming commonplace and people are insufficiently troubled about terminating pregnancies, the Archbishop of Canterbury said yesterday.
Writing on the eve of the 40th anniversary of Britain's Abortion Act, the spiritual head of the world's 77 million Anglicans said people needed to think harder about the consequences of their actions. "Recent discussion on making it simpler for women to administer abortion-inducing drugs at home underlines the growing belief that abortion is essentially a matter of individual decision and not the kind of major moral choice that should involve a sharing of perspective and judgment," Rowan Williams wrote in the Observer newspaper.
"Something has happened to our assumptions about the life of the unborn child." - Reuters
