…I present to you Joyce Arthur of Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada who is “Cranky That Jamie Lynn Spears Didn’t Choose Abortion”:
“It certainly shows any young women watching these movies or following these celebrities that the best option is to have the baby and it glorifies that choice,” said Joyce Arthur of the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada in CP report.
“But it (abortion) is just sort of being totally ignored, as though no one would ever even think of doing that. But abortion is a very commonly resorted-to option for women, especially unmarried teenaged girls,” opined Arthur.
Imagine that: glorifying giving of yourself so that someone else might live. Arthur, and those like her, are just sick. Abortion is commonly supported with the argument that the woman can’t afford to take care of a child especially when the child’s father has abandoned the mother. Well, the obviously doesn’t apply in this case, since in addition to her sister’s wealth, the younger Ms. Spears has had a successful career herself. But any reason is a good reason to have an abortion for some; they’re just usually more circumspect about voicing that opinion than Arthur was.
Most support the notion of “No Child Left Behind” (regardless of their feelings on the law that bears that name); some, it seems prefer “No Child Left Unaborted.”
