Santorum and abortion

A reader wrote a beautiful letter to the editor highly critical of presidential candidate Rick Santorum (“Santorum’s “Sharia”?, March 8). Santorum defends the “free exercise” clause of the Constitution for Catholic hospitals, while his platform violates this same clause! Furthermore, his platform denies Jewish law, which commands abortion to save a mother's life. Since a woman’s life expectancy is greater if she aborts rather than gives birth, a case can be made that all abortions should be allowed based upon the principle of self-defense, that is, a person's life comes first. I published a scholarly paper on this topic, titled “Abortion and the Beginning of a Person.”
