How often is the pro-life movement maligned as a War on Women waged by old white men? If I had a dime…
But that’s politics. More often than not, truth takes a backseat to emotion and the ever-increasing urge to rile up the base. It’s a useful tool. And lately, destructive ideas need only a passionate, uneducated coalition to get the ball rolling.
To be consistent, though, I decided to check it out. Is the pro-life position merely an attack on women by old white men? I found a Pew Research Poll taken earlier this year. Here’s the breakdown.
Question: Is abortion Morally Wrong, Morally Acceptable, or Not a Moral Issue?
Morally Wrong: 45%
Morally Acceptable: 15%
Not a Moral Issue: 23%
- 48% of men say abortion is Morally Wrong.
- 50% of women say abortion is Morally Wrong.
- 18% of men say abortion is Morally Acceptable.
- 13% of women say abortion is Morally Acceptable.
Yes, the anti-life movement is a bloody one built on lies. You don’t have to be man to know that slaughtering unborn children is disgusting and immoral.
