Restoring the American Dream: Reducing Unplanned Pregnancies and Abortion

Pro-Choice, Reducing, Unplanned Pregnancies, Abortion, Common, Pro-Life, Safe, Legal, Rare

As of today, about half of all pregnancies in the United States are unplanned [1]. Nearly a quarter of all pregnancies in the U.S. end in abortion [2].

Over the past nearly forty years, having an abortion has become more and more common. It is not simply a last resort for women who might be caught in a desperate situation. Instead, many women turn to abortion when they find the pregnancy inconvenient. This category includes a large number of teens.

Abortion has become an epidemic that affects the lives of countless women (and men, too). Too many women see abortion as an easy way out of a pregnancy. But it is not easy. Two lives are harmed by an abortion—the life of the child, and the health, wellness, and future fertility of the mother.

At this rate, at least half of American women will have an unintended pregnancy, and one third will have an abortion, by age 45 [3].

Although pro-choice supporters such as Former President Bill Clinton have claimed they want abortions to be safe, legal, and rare, it is clear that abortions are definitely not safe and anything but rare.

One thought on “Restoring the American Dream: Reducing Unplanned Pregnancies and Abortion

  1. Liberty Lament
    Can you see me as I stand tall,
    My eyes overlooking all.
    A woman representing liberty,
    Yet so many children never free.
    Long ago a gift from France,
    I see child who will never dance.
    A freedom torch I raise high,
    While American children continue to die.
    It is suppose to represent light,
    Yet darkness far from out of sight.
    “Land of the free,
    Home of the brave”,
    How can it be,
    Millions of children we never save.
    Life, liberty and justice for all,
    The American lie, how far can we fall.
    No equal protection under the law,
    As unborn children get a bad draw.
    Beyond the darkest shade of black,
    America’s best, stabbed in the back.
    The crack widens in the Liberty Bell,
    Can you hear the applause from hell?

    The American Lie
    I looked at the U.S. Supreme Court,
    Thinking about the children we abort.
    The lie on the building is all I saw,
    “Equal Justice Under Law”.
    Blood dripping from each word,
    Tiny tears need to be heard.
    The most innocent and loving of all,
    Continue to take the fall.
    America tries to hide her shame,
    There is no one else to blame.
    We deny them justice in a hurry,
    No trial, judge or jury.
    Our country imploding from within,
    Innocent blood our national sin.
    Tiny caskets from East to West,
    Just may have killed America’s best.
    Change the sign on the Supreme Court,
    Before another child we abort.
    A little truth would go a long way,
    Let the children have their say.
    “No Justice for the Unborn,
    America’s heart forever torn.”
