Ronald Reagan and Abortion

President, Ronald, Reagan, Abortion, Pro-Life, Pro-Choice

Former president Ronald Reagan is known for his work in attempting to free the oppressed.

One issue he actively spoke out against was abortion.

On one occasion, Reagan said, “Abortion is advocated only by people who have already been born.”

The people that do have the right to choose are the ones whose parents chose life.

Why change from this precedent?

And who is to say that some should live while others die as a result of abortion?

Furthermore, Reagan once compared abortion to slavery. He is quoted as saying, “We are not a free land when we are bound to abortion.”

Reagan commented, “Abraham Lincoln recognized that we could not survive as a free land when some men could decide that others were not fit to be free and should therefore be slaves.”

Likewise, we cannot survive as a free nation when some men decide that others are not fit to live and should be abandoned to abortion or infanticide.”
