Pro-Lifers Don’t Oppose Abortion Because It Causes Labor Shortages, But Because It’s a Human Rights Atrocity

Last week, the Wisconsin Assembly debated a bill that would make it illegal for state insurance plans to pay for abortions. Assembly Bill 128 contains exceptions for cases of rape, incest, and to save the life of the mother. During the course of the debate, Rep. Scott Allen took to the stand to offer his thoughts on why state insurance plans should not be permitted to provide coverage for elective abortion. Allen pointed out that abortion is bad for the state because it takes the lives of human beings who would otherwise eventually grow up, join the workforce, pay taxes, and help fund things. Thus, the state should prohibit coverage for elective abortion because the state has a compelling interest that these people grow up to be contributing members of society. Predictably, his comments caught the attention of lots of people and organizations that were not overly pleased.Allen’s comments divert attention from the beauty of preborn human life, pregnancy, and motherhood and point to a view of women as being at the service of the state. Pro-life advocates ought not fall into the trap of reducing abortion to anything other than a massive human rights violation. I wrote a post for The Federalist explaining that economic advantage has nothing to do with why abortion is wrong and how making abortion an economic issue undermines the pro-life cause.

Why You’ve Never Really Seen Hollywood Portray An Abortion Scene

Over the past few years, Hollywood has given us a handful of opportunities to see women on the big screen undergo an abortion procedure. These depictions of abortion have been roundly celebrated by abortion supporters for the way they injected the abortion discussion into the everyday life of the average viewer. Persons who support allowing women to choose abortion are thrilled to have abortion portrayed in such a positive light and in front of such a large number of people. The chance for everyone to see that abortion is both innocent and harmless is a clear reason for advocates to cheer. But were these scenes as honest as abortion supporters want us to believe? Were they an authentic depiction of abortion and what happens during the procedure?

These scenes are noteworthy because they all have one thing in common: none actually shows an abortion. I wrote a post for The Federalist explaining why these portrayals of abortion are not “honest” and what it might look like if Hollywood did actually decide to show abortion honestly.

Cullen Talks Healing After Abortion with Jim Havens of Love Will End Abortion

I recently had the chance to join Jim Havens of Love Will End Abortion. We talked about healing after abortion, resources that are available, and took some calls as well. I am always inspired by talking to people who have shared their abortion stories and found healing in the process. God is good, folks, and he has the power to transform lives.
