Calls for “Abortion pride”

Posted on: November 6, 2009

In the What We’re Up Against Department, Regis Nicoll takes a look at those who hijack religious terminology and rituals to promote abortions, or even claim to be doing God’s work by killing babies – plus those who are openly dreaming of a day when, well, let me quote:

Concluding like Martin Luther King at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, [Jacob] Appel whips up a rousing vision, “I dream of the day when women are not afraid to walk the streets with pins reading, ‘I had an abortion and it was the right decision,’ and when station wagons bear bumper-stickers announcing, ‘Thank me for having an abortion when I wasn’t ready to be a parent.’”

Mr. Appel – are you ready for this? – is billed as an ethicist.

He flunks Reality 101 in my book. For starters, if you, or someone with whom you’ve had sex, is pregnant – you are a parent.

In the Relatively Good News Department, Nicoll’s column (“Abortion Pride: A Choice Strategy, BreakPoint, Nov. 6, 2009) starts out with:

The abortion industry has hit on hard times. Over the last two decades, the number of providers and abortions has fallen by 33 percent and 25 percent, respectively.

For a billion dollar a year enterprise, that’s a lot of lost revenue; and if recent polling is any indication, the slump hasn’t hit bottom yet.
