Abortion is self-inflicted dehumanization

National Right to Life President Wanda Franz, writing in this month's (Jan. 2010) NRL News:
It is not just that abortion is barbaric; that it kills with impunity; that it is a horrendous misuse of the right to a private space -- it is more: in an abortion we treat another human being as a mere disposable thing. When we treat another human being as a mere thing, then by logic we look at ourselves as nothing more than things. But things aren't moral agents; they are not responsible for their actions. For things there is no wrong and no right. Things aren't human.

Thus abortion is the ultimate form of self-inflicted dehumanization.
