-        Corollary: Pavlischek states that following the view that an abortion is the killing of a human being; when abortion is permitted it can lead to further abuse to other susceptible and vulnerable members of society. These members are namely children, the disabled, and elderly. Pavlischek goes further to explain that this corollary is often dismissed as a slippery slope fallacy (341).

-        Child Abandonment and Neglect: Pavlischek explains that children are the most vulnerable in our society and argues that if we are not concerned with the protection of our most vulnerable that we will tend to have a similar attitude to other vulnerable people, like the elderly and disabled (342).
