An Injection of Sense in the Abortion v Health Care Reform Debate

As a companion piece to my previous post, I offer this one, which I just read on the Guttmacher Institute website:

Health Care Reform is good news for the unborn

Not enough attention is being brought to the fact that, currently, uninsured women procure abortions at a disproportionally high rate. It's easy to see why. The woman who doesn't have health insurance has to fully pay for the hight cost of pre-natal and pediatric care and would actually realize a financial gain if she chose to abort.

To restate: Uninsured women are being subsidized to abort their children. Women who have a choice about health care options are more likely to bring their pregnancies to term.

You may argue that repealing the Hyde Amendment would be 'pro-abortion'. Perhaps you're right, but it could never be as pro-abortion as poverty is. If you really care about the well being of the very young you should be doing everything you can to advance Health Care Reform.

Pro-Life Catholics for Choice

Now, that is a refreshing, inspiring, and intelligent way to push the need for health care reform with those who are usually duped by wolves in Christian clothing.
