Beneath Abortion’s Rhetoric

I’ve been listening to the words some of our politicians use to frame their stand on publicly-funded abortion – terms such as “access,” “reproductive rights,” and “women’s health issues.” These are words constantly repeated in the political arena, words carefully selected to assuage any doubt, words that seemingly promise freedom, choice, and a healthier future for a woman choosing to terminate her viable pregnancy …

Nancy Elliott and the bill’s co-sponsors for respecting the consciences of their neighbors and fellow citizens, to whom abortions are deplorable, and choose not to fund them either privately or through taxation.
