Pro-abortion advocates often talk about making abortion “legal, safe, and rare.” But why rare? Why should they want to reduce abortions? It’s because, deep down, abortion advocates know abortion is murder. Their language about finding common ground and making abortions “rare” only belies their own knowledge of the immorality of murder and abortion.
Put another way, there is NO NEED to “reduce” something that is morally permissible, which is exactly what abortion advocates claim abortion to be. It should be asked repeatedly of every abortion rights supporter, “Should abortions be reduced?” If their answer is yes, then they are implicitly admitting that there is something morally undesirable about the procedure. The unspoken question being asked is whether abortion is murder.
If abortion is murder, then the course of action is obvious: Ban it.
If abortion is not murder, then why all the posturing to “reduce” abortion numbers? If it is morally permissible, why should they capitulate to the pro-lifers’ demands?
Again, it’s because they know well what abortion really is. As science advances each year, the window to the womb becomes clearer and clearer. It is becoming more and more untenable to deny that the unborn are fully human and fully deserving of protection under the law.
Pro-lifers must keep pressuring abortion supporters to either admit that abortion is murder or, if they don’t believe it is, to stop advocating for the reduction of a morally indifferent action.
