Berger illustrates perfectly why we cannot trust progressives or liberals to defend individual rights. His very criterion is flawed since every action ever taken could conceivably affect other persons. The best defense of abortion rights is done by the late Murray Rothbard in The Ethics of Liberty, wherein he postulates that no human being has the right to reside in the body of another without their consent. We have no right to birth, that is a choice ultimately made by the carrier. This settles the "partial" birth and other stages-of-life argument. Of course the fetus or zygote or embroyo is human, that was never at issue with any sane person. But that in itself gives no one a claim against another person anymore than the nonexistent "right" to medical care gives one a claim against all providers. No, we don't need yet another worthless state agency run by anti-white Hillaryites to decide who is going to be born. Like everything else in a free society of laissez-faire capitalism this will be done by the unregulated, uncontrolled market. You pwogs need to get your government-worshipping hands out of our lives, both economic and social.
