Can Liberals be pro life?

leave a comment »

There is an interesting post and subsequent discussion about Liberalism and abortion going on at Imago Dei.

The argument builds off this premise: “One of the goals of classic liberalism is to protect the weak from the powerful.” From where I stand, the reason liberals are usually not pro life is that they want to pick and choose who is weak and who is powerful. In other words, their naturalism and their radical autonomy do them in. Those elements don’t lead one to embrace freedom, they lead to isolation and to tyranny. But then, I’ve said that before.
