The Hard Cases: Is Abortion Justified? (a discussion with my wife Chelsea)

My wife Chelsea returns to Truthspresso to continue a series discussing abortion.

Abortion advocates often bring up rape and incest as exceptional cases to defend abortion. We analyze these hard cases to see if abortion really should be justified. Perhaps adding abortion to the trauma of a crime is not the ideal solution.

Chelsea holds a B.S. in Nursing from Regis University, a Masters in Nursing from Pensacola Christian College, and a post-Master's certificate in Certified Nurse Midwifery from the University of Colorado. She has worked as a pediatric nurse, has volunteered over eight years of work at crisis pregnancy centers in Colorado and Florida, and has delivered over 100 babies. Chelsea runs the website www.crmidwifery.com to offer her services. She is opening her own life-affirming clinic this year to serve women in the Denver Metro area.
