Opinion: Abortion statistics show reality of a land without restrictions | Holy Post | National Post

As predicted: abortion has become a preferred method of contraception. Why take a pill and play with your hormone levels? An abortion is the answer for far too many. These statistics are telling us that a time when we are beginning to experience a the negative effects of the emerging demographic failures of the past (too many pensioners - not enough younger workers), over 1/3 of all pregnancies in Ontario are ending in the termination of the unborn.


I appreciate than many believe that a woman's right to choose should be completely unrestricted and absolute. I disagree. From my perspective, it is an issue of human rights - the right to life of the unborn. Demographic information such as this only adds to the weight of evidence that there have been unintended and negative consequences for society through the maintenance of the holding of 'choice' over 'life', consequences that must be addressed by both sides in these great debates.


Someway, somehow we all need to find a common moral ground that helps us to come closer as a society to a resolution of this debate before these negative consequences become even worse. It's the demographic equivalent to 'global climate change'. It's becoming the elephant in the room that pro-choice advocates are failing to acknowledge the population consequences of their 'successes'.


Just my opinion.
