Liberals pro-abortion? No way

SHARE Liberals pro-abortion? No way

While abortion is a horrible option, it is nonetheless a decision that must be made by those most affected and their doctors — not politicians.

All too often, statements such as "liberals are pro-abortion" roll off the tongues of people whose personal self-esteem demands they make aggressive moral declarations publicly. Nobody likes abortion. And anyone who ascribes such a position to pro-choice advocates is being dishonest.

If you truly want to rid the world of unnecessary abortions, do something in your community to help create better options for women with unwanted pregnancies. But please, do not insist government and politicians control what is a deeply personal and horrible decision. It will only lead to unsafe and illegal procedures.
