Today's typical aborter knows better

Women having abortions are not who you think
You might be surprised to learn that the young woman seeking an abortion in the United States today is not somebody's careless teenage daughter.


She is in her 20s, she has attended college, she earns a manageable living, and she is either living with the father or in a long-term relationship with him.

And she already has a child.

In other words, the typical aborter has absolutely no excuse. She's not aborting out of ignorance or feeling trapped. She knows it's a baby -- she's followed a previous pregnancy through all the prenatal books, she's seen the ultrasounds. She has the money. She has the stable relationship. She knows she's capable of caring for a child.

We need to shout this from the rooftops, and get rid of the idea that abortion is usually some sort of desperate measure taken by women in dire straits. The vast majority of Americans will have no more sympathy for the typical aborter than they would for adulterers and child molesters. These are women who know they're doing wrong, and are doing it anyway.

Question for post-abortion women: Are women this selfish capable of remorse? Or are we seeing a coarsening of sensibility to the point where we've raised a generation of psychopathic women -- and of psychopathic men who see nothing wrong with, "Let's kill this baby. I just don't want it."?
