I was surprised someone would suggest that we possibly have too few abortions in this country, but apparently that is the belief of at least one columnist at RH Reality Check, a website that bills itself as having “Information and Analysis for Reproductive Health”. Hmm. Abortions are actually somewhat dangerous, as is any medical procedure and can lead to sterility, never mind the intended consequences. In addition, if, as she states, it is already the case that between 20 and 40% of all pregnancies in this country end in abortion, wouldn’t any normal person think that was already plenty, thankyouverymuch?
While I think the government needs to stay out of my body, we need to have a culture that values all life, clearly not a belief that particular columnist shares with me.
