Lest anyone mistake the meaning of so called “pro-life” political posturing… providing free, reliable birth control to women could prevent between 41 percent and 71 percent of abortions in the United States, new research finds. “Pro-life” politics have nothing to do with preventing abortion, and everything to do with people manipulating sentiment for political gain. The embrace of anti-contraception policies shows how shameless and immoral these people are. Want to stop abortion? Make it unnecessary. Don’t make it illegal.
