Kalisvaart: Lecture provides rational justification for Roe v. Wade

Kalisvaart: Lecture provides rational justification for Roe v. Wade

I wish to express my full approval of Dr. Paula G. Carmichael M.D. and my representative Jack Lyle for their courageous and moral stand on the pro-choice issue. (Letters Valley Breeze March 14)

In 1973 our Supreme Court made the right decision in Roe v. Wade, but I found their reasoning flawed and troublesome. I found a rational justification for Roe v. Wade when I discovered a recording of a 1968 Ford Hall Forum lecture called “Of Living Death.” That lecture was a response to the Humanae Vitae encyclical on birth control written by Pope Paul VI in 1968.

I recommend that you listen to that most remarkable and enlightening Ford Hall Forum lecture. It consists of a one-hour talk and a one-hour Q&A. You can listen to that talk at: https://campus.aynrand.org/works/1968/01/01/of-living-death/page1 .
