Maguire drew on St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas who both thought that to allow certain moral evils would prevent greater evils.
So women dying from botched abotions is more evil than putting to death a helpless baby, or really all helpless babies? I don't understand the (il)logic.

Especially when you consider that the drop in abortion deaths was underway BEFORE Roe v. Wade, it was due to antibiotics, not legalized infanticide.

Illogic indeed, instead of comparing legal vs illegal abortions, shouldn't Maguire be encouraging women to give birth and life as nature and God intended.
