Piper on abortion

John Piper, classified as the king of Protestant social theology wrote an amazing review of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in upholding the ban on partial birth abortion.

Quoting from Piper's first paragraph, "Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the opinion of the Supreme Court in upholding the ban on partial birth abortions on April 18, 2007. It is astonishing to read the opinion (PDF). The detail with which abortion is discussed exceeded my expectation. Kennedy’s own descriptions of the various forms of abortion are explicit and extensive. Descriptions of the procedure of partial birth abortion ('intact dilation and extraction') are given from both doctors’ and nurses’ perspectives."

Piper has said much more on the topic of abortion and can be read or listened to here.
