Chapter 8: Abortion – the Holy Grail

Chapter 8 of Women Who Make the World Worse discusses the issue of abortion. Kate O’Beirne opens with this statement.

“Modern feminism’s biggest enemies are the smallest humans. These activists have made abortion on demand the fundamental right that women’s equality depends on. They argue that women can’t be the equal of men unless they are free to rid themselves of their unborn children at any time for any reason.”

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:

“We must change the climate overall from one where abortion providers are vilified and assaulted to one where they are honored and upheld as the heroes they are.”

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:

“No matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; But oh, thrice guilty is he who drove her to the desperation which impelled her to the crime.”

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?
