I am grateful to John Woods and David Soles for the careful attention they have given to some of the central arguments of Abortion and Moral Theory, though I wish that they had revealed fewer respects in which those arguments were seriously underdeveloped. In what follows I will try to supply some (though not all) of the needed further development. I address the main points at issue in what I conceive to be their order of ascending importance.
