Even though it should not surprise us, it is still disturbing to know that more men than women support abortion. I came across this article today and I agree with the author’s analysis. She says,
We have to consider the possibility that perhaps women are not always making choices that they really want to make, as men absolve themselves of their responsibility in decision- making. A choice is no choice if there are not equal (supported) alternatives.
Canada’s unfettered access to abortion allows men to live with this attitude; an attitude that shows complete lack of regard for the woman they have impregnated and a callousness that is repulsive.
Ms. Taylor goes on to dispel the myth that abortion laws are an assault on women’s rights. She says,
So before commentators all too easily accept claims that restricting abortion is a war on women, they should stop to consider whether abortion is really a choice women want to always have to take responsibility for on their own.
Certainly something to consider as we advocate for protections for pre-born children.
