Just imagine a Nation Without Abortion

Imagine a nation that loved all its children so passionately
that it built an entire social and economic structure around protecting them, nurturing them, fostering their growth, and supporting their every stage of life. The logic of this care for children would, of course, extend to the conditions by which those children entered the world. The nation would first care about young adults and their sexual choices.... The citizens of this nation would learn the terrible stories of cultures around the world that did not support children, and weep at how these societies sold children into slavery, slaughtered newborns, forced sterilizations, and subjected marginalized women to dangerous back alley abortions. They would study the slow march of responses to these violent acts: from orphan trains that moved children off city streets to farms, to different kinds of foster care and orphanages, to the paradox of medical abortion. At each stage they would recognize the desperate cosmetic fixes to the larger social problem: these cultures thought only some children were worth caring about. They did not have their best and brightest using their most significant resources to care for mothers, fathers, and children. -- Imagining a Nation without Abortion

Your Say

Or how about the paradox that those most fervid for government sponsored abortion are also most fervid for government sponsored day care?

'I want government to raise the babies that I did not have aborted'.

I imagine liberals don't have that in mind when they sing John Lennon's song Imagine.
