Presbyterian Minister Writes New Book to Make the “Christian Argument for Abortion”

A new book by Presbyterian minister Rebecca Todd Peters pushes the notion that killing an unborn baby is not wrong.

In “Trust Women: A Progressive Christian Argument for Reproductive Justice” from Beacon Press, Todd Peters argues for abortion from a religious perspective.

Todd Peters, who also is a professor at Elon University, wrote, “The starting point of our ethical conversation should be women’s lives, [yet] the problem that we face in this country is our failure to trust women to act as rational, capable, responsible moral agents.”

Elon University had this to say about her book: “Her most recent work is developing a Christian ethic of reproductive justice as the framework for thinking about women’s whole reproductive lives, including everything from access to contraception to fertility treatments to unplanned pregnancies. … This new project also focuses on helping people think in more sophisticated ways about how pregnancy challenges our existing moral categories of personhood and life.”
