Pro-choicers say they want abortion to be safe, legal, and rare. But we will see whether major pro choice organizations react to the awful statistic that 39 percent of pregnancies in NYC result in induced abortion. From the story:
In 2009, there were 225,667 pregnancies in the City with 126,774 resulting in live births and 87,273 resulting in abortions.
Abortion is not a morally neutral act, it stops a beating heart, as the old pro life advocacy slogan has it. And such a hedonistic indifference to the reality of destroying a gestating human being impacts the morality of society overall by subverting the perceived importance of human life and the duty to properly control one’s behavior and its consequences. In other words, I think it is our business.
