Finn, you are really missing the point. Let me try to explain this again.
It is one thing to be against abortion. I believe that abortions should be safe and legal. I also understand that people feel very strongly that abortion should be illegal, and I respect this. I myself believe that abortions should be rare.
But whether abortion should be legal or not isn't the point of this thread.
The issue is that the conservative republicans are attacking birth control. Their policies would cut money from birth control and sex education. This might be the part you don't understand. Birth control greatly reduces the number of unwanted pregnancies which reduces the number of abortions.
Being against abortion is one thing, I respect this opinion even though I don't completely agree with it.
Being against abortion while pushing cuts in birth control is just plain stupid.
