Abortion. It seems to be seen as "normal" to the average American, as a "necessity," something that just needs to be done in certain circumstances. How has this mindset come into being?
Our culture has become a culture of death. We are constantly told that things like abortion are "good" and "for the best" and that without them we'll be unhappy. Look at the ad below, found on the train. It gives you the impression that being a teen parent is impossible and terrible. I admit, being a teen parent isn't ideal, but if it happens it is possible to do and can be a good experience. An interesting thing about the ad below is that it isn't directly promoting abortion, but it feels like it's implying it. Maybe because we encourage "safe sex" in our schools, music and television are filled with uncommitted sex, and people are made to feel like there's something wrong with them if they aren't having sex.
I think that before America can be a nation committed to protecting all human life, we really need to change the view of our culture and our education.
