In “1984” by Eric Blair (aka George Orwell), there was a Junior Anti-Sex League; in our recovering theocracy, there is “pro-life”. They have the same message: human sexuality is fundamentally evil. If the anti- choice advocates were truly “pro-life”, they would be concerned about:
o over population
o capital punishment
o pre and post natal care
and many other germain issues.
Perhaps no one is – in a sense – in favor of abortions: they should be rare, safe, and legal. They best way to reduce abortions? The availability of birth control, and sound, scientific sex education for all. Abortions are, unfortunately, a necessary method of birth control in countries – like the United States – in which knowledge of human sexuality and reproduction is low. Who opposses the availability of birth control and sex education? The same who oppose abortions.
The message we can send is: “Yes, we enjoy our sexual relationships, and no one can tell us otherwise”.
