Where There's Life, There's Hope
Topic: Decline of the West

 

Despite all attempts by the pro-choice crowd to pin a smile button on the abortion industry, public opinion is becoming more and more adverse to abortion on demand. While not favoring an outright abortion ban, a clear majority of Americans would support tighter restrictions, e.g. outlawing partial birth abortion. This should surprise no one. Despite decades of propaganda and Newspeak (for “fetus” read “undifferentiated tissue mass”) most people persist in believing the obvious: that human life begins at conception. Abortion remains legal, but it’s no longer quite respectable.

 

Susan G. Komen for the Cure is America’s leading breast cancer charity, and it has just decided to end its longstanding partnership with Planned Parenthood, America’s leading abortion provider. This decision was probably the result of many factors, including the adverse publicity that Planned Parenthood has received recently. But on a deeper level, I believe that it reflects a growing realization that respect for life is not really compatible with unlimited access to abortion.
