On abortion: a Lincolnian position

Article Abstract:

There are many parallels between support of abortion rights in the 1990s and apologies for slavery in the years before the Civil War. Principled politicians should model their stances on abortion on Pres Lincoln's stance on slavery. Abortion is legal but it is not morally legitimate.
