…Affordable? The pro-choice mantra used to be “safe, legal and rare.” Now a new group wants to further normalize abortion. Check this link out. There’s a video there…women telling their story on camera. Now you would think that for their video they would choose really compelling stories… women who tell bold tales about how their abortions were good for them. Instead, and keep in mind this is their promo literature, we have one woman who asks the question of “whether she is a bad person.” And the other wants to talk about it, not make it hush hush, but she doesn’t say anything good about it.
I say bring on the discussion. I always do, and this moment is no different. Pro-lifers need to compassionately get in on discussions with women who have had abortions. Who are, in many cases, one and the same women. (Pro-life and post-abortive. Pro-life women get abortions, not being any more immune to the seduction of our culture than anyone else. This is not hypocrisy, this is life.)
Faye adds: I’ve noticed in recent years that ‘professional’ pro-choicers have dropped the “rare” from the “safe, legal and rare” mantra. They were challenged as to why they believed such a procedure should be rare, when it’s just another, everyday practice. Declaring that it should be rare indicated that there’s something not so awesome about it. Otherwise, it shouldn’t be a rare procedure.by
