Abortion and moral repugnancy

Abstract
Most arguments concerning abortion center around the issue of rights. This short essay argues that there can be important considerations regarding the matter that have nothing whatsoever to do with rights. In general, the issue of moral decency has never been entirely settled by reference to rights. It can be morally repugnant to do some thing even if one would be acting perfectly within one's rights. I argue that with advances in technology this will turn out to be the case with abortion, given the possibility of transferring a fetus from one womb to another.
