How Can I Explain to Others that Abortion is an Intrinsic Evil and Against Natural Law?

Question:

I know abortion is an intrinsic evil and against natural law, but how can I explain to others why this is so?

Answer:

How about asking them to explain to you how the outright, deliberate killing of an innocent child could ever be anything but evil? There is simply no legitimate explanation.
