The Turning Tide on Abortion?

Pro-lifers have always argued that abortion is a grievous act that not only takes the life of a human being (Psalm 139), but also brings with it enormously negative psychological and spiritual consequences. Now, that reality is being acknowledged in a surprisingly candid article by pro-choice advocate Jennifer Senior in New York magazine.

In "Just How Pro-Choice is America, Really?" Senior explains how the nation has consistently opposed abortion since Roe vs. Wade, how advances in technology have fortified the pro-life arguments, and--most importantly--how difficult it is for many pro-choicers to emotionally come to terms with this gruesome procedure.

As the Congress debates whether to permit abortion coverage as part of the monstrosity of nationalized health care, may Senior's article persuade more pro-choice advocates like Abby Johnson to decide, "I can't do this anymore."
