Comment by Jim Sedlak of the American Life League: "We know that abortion is wrong. It is always surprising how many people do not know that automatically. For those who may think it is okay, we must continually find new ways of expressing why abortion is wrong. Professor Cobin's article takes a novel approach to that question. He begins and ends with the premise that abortion is wrong "morally and theoretically." He presents his market analysis in a manner that may be convincing to some who have never thought of it in the way he describes."
