Overcoming Abortion as Birth Control

A few days ago I noted in this blog that the possible overturning of Roe v. Wade will press the debate in Colorado over abortion to a more intense level.

One of the most significant challenges we will have to face is the disconnecting of sexual activity and procreation in our culture.

This challenge was honestly communicated recently from a man on the other side of the issue. As noted in commentary at LifeNews, the former Hillary Clinton staffer is “scared” that Roe v. Wade might be overturned.

Why is he scared? He says: “On an academic level, I’ve followed the entrenched, decades-long, conservative effort to undermine access to safe abortions. Yet until this moment, I’ve viewed accessible abortion as something my partners and I could reasonably rely on as a last resort. That security has informed my approach to sexual exploration and relationships. From this vantage point, access to abortion is not just a women’s issue, but a public health issue that directly affects anyone who engages in sexual relationships that might lead to pregnancy.”

Men and women are relying on abortion as a backup to birth control, and they organize their lives around this reliance.

In other words, murder is being employed to support a promiscuous lifestyle.

Shining the light on this truth will be a major challenge for us in the new year.
