‘One third of us is missing’

The sad story making the news rounds today is pretty simple: Since Roe v. Wade, some 55 million abortions have been performed.

Those are “procedures” on lumps of flesh, if you chose to ignore reality. But this opinion piece by Kristan Hawkins calls it like it is and maintains there may be a change in the air. A lot of politicians have told us that abortion should be “legal but rare.” But those same old politicians set into place policies that made abortion anything but rare.

Anyway, here’s part of what Hawkins has to say:

“Today, this 27 year-old is writing to you as a survivor of that decision. The undeniable fact is that nearly a third of my generation is missing. We are missing brothers, sisters, cousins, friends, husbands and wives …

“You see, (the previous) generation got it wrong. In attempting to correct gender inequality in the workplace and in our society, they set into motion the ultimate act of discrimination – abortion. Instead of glorifying motherhood, they pitted the mother against her child, creating an endless cycle of selfishness, pain, and deceit.

“But this generation is determined to set it right. We’ve seen the ultrasounds of our siblings, googled “abortion” and seen the bloody images, and sat with a friend as she cried about her abortion. This youth generation is the most pro-life generation of young people since 1973 …”
