Abortion: A Rational Look at an Emotional Issue (by R. C. Sproul)
"The ethical dilemma of our time." - R. C. Sproul
It has been nearly forty years since the Supreme Court made abortion on demand legal in the United States, but the issue continues to divide Americans. Complex theological, ethical and legal questions all come into the debate.
In Abortion: A Rational Look at an Emotional Issue, Dr. R. C. Sproul employs his unique perspective as a highly experienced pastor-theologian and a trained philosopher to provide well-considered and compassionate answers to the difficult questions that attend the termination of a pregnancy.
Putting aside the strident slogans and heated rhetoric that often mark the abortion debate, Dr. Sproul offers a factual, well-reasoned approach, using careful biblical scholarship, civil law, and natural law to deal with such issues as the sanctity of life, when life begins, and the role of government in the abortion issue. In addition, Dr. Sproul lays out a compassionate response to those who have had abortions and outlines a strategy that values life as a gift from God.
Abortion: A Rational Look at an Emotional Issue is a balanced consideration of the arguments in the abortion debate, but also a firm and clear call to renewed respect for human life in the womb.
