Quote of the Day: on successful abortions

Robert George, a professor of politics at Princeton University, wrote to National Review's Jonah Goldberg recently on the topic of abortion, and Goldberg shared the text. It included this nugget:
The (attempted) abortion is a success or a failure depending precisely on whether they transform a living human fetus into a corpse. Anything short of fetal death---including live birth---is a failed abortion.
This is, of course, the antithesis of a doctor's supposed duty -- to prevent (if at all possible) a body from slipping into corpse status.
