Dr. Markate Daly has a PhD in Ethics from the University of Wisconsin. She’s a long-time active member of UUCB. Recent debates on the abortion issue pit the pro-choice view, framed in the language of personal rights and interests, against the pro-life groups, framed in moral terms. This framing distorts the real balance of moral versus self-interested motives about the legality of abortion services.  My objective here is to show the moral case for continuing to support abortion rights while showing the Faustian bargain fundamentalist Christians have made with the corporate elite and the Republican Party. “A Moral Defense of Abortion Rights.”
