Pro-life people are sometimes, usually mean-spiritedly, called “pro-birth” or “forced birthers.” Emily Albrecht explains why this is a totally inaccurate representation of what pro-lifers believe about abortion and why they believe it, as well as showing that pro-life support systems for women disprove the label.
In this Quick Response video, Emily Albrecht explains that the idea that we can reduce abortion significantly by legislating against poverty and allowing abortion is a red herring. Even if financial motivators are a commonly cited reason for choosing abortion, that doesn’t tell the whole story.
NOTE: We had a small editing mistake. Partway through the video, Emily is saying “it’s not obvious for what percentage abortion was motivated ONLY by financial reasons,” but the video cut is missing the word “not.”
Emily Albrecht responds to the pro-choice concern that abortion is necessary because of problems with the foster care system. The foster care system is certainly in need of improvement, but does that justify abortion?
