Abortion treats pregnancy as a disease. Instead of accommodating women’s natural capacity for childbearing and, often, natural desire for childrearing, a culture that permits abortion encourages women to behave like career-focused men. Just as infuriating, abortion “allows men to view women as always sexually available without any marital commitment or promise of stability.” Therefore, abortion on demand has distorted relations between the sexes. It convinces men that an unexpected pregnancy is not only a problem but specifically a woman’s problem.
The Texas Supreme Court issued a ruling Friday which blocks most abortions from taking place in the state. The ruling overturned an earlier order from a Harris County judge that allowed clinics to perform abortions up to six weeks of pregnancy, CBN News reports.
A plurality of American adults oppose the overturning of Roe v. Wade and support abortion rights, according to a new poll released Thursday. They also expressed their displeasure with the general direction of the Biden administration and with the Supreme Court.
Forcing births without support is not pro-life, forcing our beliefs on others and causing them suffering is not pro-life, and putting mothers' lives at stake is not pro-life. I may not agree with people's decisions to get an abortion. But overturning Roe v. Wade was not the way to accomplish what we want: a world where all lives are upheld as precious in the sight of God.
Disparities can have multiple factors. In the case of the high number of abortions of black babies, as we’ve shared on Breakpoint before, almost 80% of Planned Parenthood’s clinics, according to a 2012 study, were near majority black or Hispanic neighborhoods. Pro-abortion advocates argue that the racial disparity for abortion is more about poverty. Perhaps, for example, the mother couldn’t afford to care for another baby. According to Jason Riley in the Wall Street Journal, however, this argument fails to explain why the abortion numbers among Hispanics who are impoverished are not comparable.
