Helen Alvaré, from Winter 2016 issue of Human Life Review, (c)2016 The Human Life Foundation:

“Abortion immediately challenges the ordinary and respectable life around it, whatever its incarnation. The clinic in the neighborhood. The body in the incinerator. The body parts in the cooler. The survivor who lives to tell the tale. In the same way that contemporary societies never leave off marveling at how a seemingly civilized nation could have enslaved a race, or murdered a religion – we will never leave off turning over and over in our heads the fact of an abortion clinic near a supermarket near an apartment building near a hospital where they save prematurely born babies.”
