I wrote this several years ago, and obviously before Roe was overturned. The case against abortion rightly focuses on the harm to the unborn. But …What Abortion Does to Us
I really like what madblog writes here about the deeper truths of rampant abortion and how it changes us as a people. It’s very thought provoking and offers some much needed depth to the hollowness of the usual strawman arguments that saturate abortion debates today. Please click on the link above and give it a read, it’s well worth your time.
For the record, my personal views are the same as Bill and Hillary Clinton’s, at least the 1990s Billary who coined the phrase, “safe, legal and rare.”
How quaint, right? We are far, far away from this today, where abortion is too commonly accepted as birth control and where pregnancies in most blue states can be terminated at any time up until birth. That is not a sign of a healthy society.
The SCOTUS ruling is good for the country, as it transfers power away from judges and back to the people, who can finally have real debates about it and decide for themselves if they want their state to have it and vote accordingly.
For that to happen we need better discussions with a focus on truly improving the situation for women and society as a whole, not emotional hyperbole to score political points. Madblog’s post is a great place to start.
