Born-again abortion

I just heard part of an NPR interview with actress Meryl Streep this morning. She is in a new movie, a politicized remake of The Manchurian Candidate, where some company resembling Halliburton conspires... well, never mind all that. It's political, of course.

The interviewer asked about her political "profile". She said she had been reading the New Testament lately and wondered how Jesus would regard the bombing of children, and speculated on the necessity and moral acceptability of collateral damage. Apparently, Ms. Streep is rather devout these days, and presumably she imagines Jesus would be against the Iraq invasion.

What the interviewer did not ask, and I would love to know, is what she thinks Jesus would have to say about abortion?
