An Oxford University stem cell expert has urged the use of aborted children in organ transplants as a solution to the shortage of available organs. Sir Richard Gardner has called for a feasibility study on the possibility of obtaining organs from the bodies of aborted babies.I'm wondering if some pro-choicer out there could tell me if they agree that this idea is "morally abhorrent", and if so, why.
