It appears that more than 30 years of pro-life work may be paying off.
Not only have thousands of pregnancy help centers been established in America and in many parts of the world, a new generation is looking at abortion on demand and not liking what they see.
A survey published this week in London’s Telegraph newspaper finds powerful public support for restricting abortion at earlier stages.
Fifty-eight percent of those surveyed said abortions should not be carried out after the 20th week of pregnancy. Amazingly, more women than men favor tighter controls.
The current law places the legal limit at 24 weeks. But as in America, virtually any English woman who wants an abortion for any reason and at any time can get one.
Given England’s secular culture, the survey is even more surprising.
Answers to questions about human cloning and embryonic research are also encouraging to pro-lifers.
The efforts and information provided by pro-lifers since Roe vs. Wade in America is starting to produce positive results.
Let’s keep it up and share with a new generation the facts about abortion and the value of all human life.
The message seems to be getting through.
