Of course, the recognition of the ancient proscription of abortion is not just a Catholic thing. A Methodist wrote the big book on the subject: Abortion and the Early Church: Christian, Jewish and Pagan Attitudes in the Greco-Roman World, by Michael J. Gorman. I have not yet read it, though for the year of St. Paul I’ve been reading his Apostle of the Crucified Lord: A Theological Introduction to Paul and His Letters, which is outstanding.

The book Pelosi’s people quote is online here, in Latin:
Quaestionum in Heptateuchum: Lib. 2, Quaestiones in Exodum. It’s Section 80, on Exodus 21:22-25.

The context does not seem very apt for her argument.
