David Walker on Abortion

 


I strongly oppose partial birth abortion

Q: You said you oppose all abortions after fetal viability?

A: Yes, and I strongly oppose "partial birth abortions".

Q: You support a woman's right to choose on legal grounds, while opposing it on moral grounds; so do you describe yourself as pro-choice or pro-life?

A: I usually describe my views as "pro life" while recognizing the difference between the moral from the legal dimensions.

Morally wrong, but a woman's choice until viability

Q: Is abortion a woman's right?

A: Support. From a moral standpoint, I believe abortion is wrong. I'm a practicing Roman Catholic, and not in name only. At the same time, from a legal standpoint, I believe it should be a woman's right up until the point the fetus is viable on its own. There's a difference between the moral and legal standpoints. You can't legislate morality. There's also a difference between church and state. Enforcement, in any case, should be on the physician.

Enforce against doctors performing abortions after viability

Q: You said, "Enforcement, in any case, should be on the physician" -- could you elaborate on when and how you would recommend enforcement? A: I believe that once a fetus is viable then abortions should generally be deemed to be illegal. The enforcement should be on the doctor and not the woman.
