In the 1960s, we were told that there were too many people, not enough resources, unwanted and abused children, abused women, poverty, and a host of other social ills. When taken separately, these issues all appear to be independent problems, but we were told that they all had a common remedy.
Abortion was touted as the solution to all our social ills. In other words, we were told then that these social problems were best resolved by ending someone’s life. Twenty-five years after the legalization of abortion on demand – – and the deaths of over 36 million babies – – our opponents still continue to argue that abortion is the solution.
