The genocide continues
by Sam Isaacson 1/16/2013 / World Affairs
As a Christian it's tempting to only ever talk about abortion within the context of whether it's right or wrong. That's important and necessary, but not what this is about; hear me out.
Most pro-choice campaigners would be happy to unite behind a banner saying, 'Let's make abortion legal, safe and rare.' Pro-life campaigners would clearly want abortion to be non-existent, but within a legal system with tight restrictions on it, this is probably just as good a catchphrase as you'll find anywhere else.
But let's look at rare for just a moment. Planned Parenthood released their annual report recently, proudly announcing that in 2011-12 its affiliated clinics carried out 333,964 abortions. On average, wait for it, that's one unborn child killed every 94 seconds.
