There are consequences to any choice. Dr. Donald DeMarco addresses a few of the consequences of abortion and an abortion culture:
Joyce Arthur, coordinator of the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada complained when actress Nicole Kidman announced to the press that she was “thrilled” at being pregnant. Ms. Arthur wants pregnant women to be less positive about their pregnancies: “It certainly shows any young woman watching these movies or following these celebrities that the best option is to have the baby and it glorifies that choice.” The choice to abort brings with it a prohibition of any public display of maternal joy. One choice annuls another. We must not glorify choices. We want to make all choices perfectly free of any outside influence. This would mean, incidentally, the logical end of commercial advertising. Nonetheless, this is a strange request coming from an organization that has done everything it could to influence the choice of abortion. The choice for abortion, indeed, as Elshtain has remarked, does bring with it a considerable array of constraints and compulsions. […]
When the choice to abort is regarded as a form of “care,” the consequences can be catastrophic. Concerning Obama’s Affordable Care Act, W. Ross Blackburn, rector of an Anglican fellowship, raises an interesting question: “When decisions about what is and what is not covered by insurance are made by an appointed administrator with a medical sheet in one hand and a balance sheet in the other, what will happen to children whose prognosis is bleak, and treatment is expensive?” (The Human Life Review, Fall 2012) Does it make sense to deliver a child who requires expensive medical treatment that is not covered by the Affordable Care Act? Rev. Blackburn fears that ultimately the back-alley abortion will be replaced by the back-alley birth! Will his words written in 2012 prove prophetic 25 years from now?
