Chapter 8: Abortion – the Holy Grail
Besides Kate O'Beirne's book, Women Who Make the World Worse, I have been reading Alan Sears' and Craig Osten's book, The ACLU vs. America. One of the chapters sheds light on the abortion agenda of the American Civil Liberties Union. One ACLU press release reads:
Since abortion was acclaimed as a constitutional right in 1973, the abortion industry has grown into a big business - it is now the most frequently performed surgical operation. Although there are Feminists For Life, the majority of modern feminists have tried to argue that to be pro-woman, one must be "pro-choice".
However, the original suffragettes referred to abortion as "child murder." In 1869, their weekly paper, The Revolution, declared:
Every 38 seconds, an American woman gets an abortion - 20% of those are college women. It is also shown that more men favor abortion than women do (a poll conducted by the Center for Gender Equity).
If we don't respect the dignity of life because of the size of the person, why would we respect the dignity of life at any stage? What happened to the original feminists ideas about life? How and why did the modern feminists pervert the respect for life? How do we un-brainwash college women that it is liberating for them to get an abortion?
