Editorial Reviews

Taped on July 25, 1972The most visible abortion battleground was New York State, where the legislature had voted to repeal the extremely permissive law it had passed two years before and where Governor Nelson Rockefeller had vetoed the repeal. But the case challenging that veto would probably never make it to the Supreme Court, Lucas explains, for there were others ahead of it in line; in retrospect, we know that one of those, Roe v. Wade, was decided in January 1973. This show covers familiar ground but often from angles that are still fresh thirty years later. Lucas: "Would you favor legislation requiring a woman to submit to strong medical treatment to stop spontaneous abortion and penalizing her accordingly if she didn't?" Noonan: "No, I think you're again committing what I would say was a fault in moral reasoning. Because you're bound to avoid doing some injury to a person does not mean that you're bound to do everything possible in the world to help him." Summary by Firing Line staff.

Mr. Buckley great as always... “what is it that makes you a human being
5 seconds after you weren’t a human being inside the uterus?”

Being a pro-life activist I have long known that Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton were monstrous and even stupid decisions with no basis in our Constitution, history or morality. However one of the reasons that I thought they got away with the decisions was that the pro-life movement was caught flat footed by the push for abortion in the early seventies. Watching this video however proves that the pro-life arguments were there. It shows the that the pro-life movement knew the bogus case law and history of the pro-abortion movement were bogus and could prove it. What struck me the most watching this was how almost the entire pro-abortion case being made in this video has been conclusively proven to be a fraud and the pro-life arguments have simply grown stronger with the passage of time. It is not often that you see only one side of an argument age so badly while the other side of the argument just gets stronger and stronger. Lucas' disingenuous arguments seem so dated even saying that a human being is not a human being because a person legs at one point in a development looks like a tail.

Now in hindsight we can see that the Supreme Court could have and should have known how idiotic their ruling it would look and they essentially had no excuse for their stupidity. This is a very valuable video for anyone interested in the history of the abortion movement and the lies used to bring abortion on demand about.

You may not agree with William F. Buckley, Jr.'s political views, but you can't deny his great intelligence, command of the English language, and his ability to create a lively, but civilized atmosphere in which all views are given a fair hearing. The current climate of rudeness and crudeness is embarrassing and discouraging in comparison to Firing Line.
