One final note on the abortion front. This should hopefully bring clarity to those who may need it as to why banning abortion is such an unpopular idea.
“While there is very little relationship between abortion legality and abortion incidence, there is a strong correlation between abortion legality and abortion safety.”
Much like drugs, banning abortion doesn’t stop abortion. It does make it less safe for those who choose it.
I know it’s supposedly not contextually sound Biblically, but time after time I find that it rings true: “Everything is permissible”–but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible”–but not everything is constructive. ~ 1 Corinthians 10:23 NIV
