Some interesting facts1:
- 56m abortions each year on earth, one in four pregnancies.
- Moral instruction or legal hassle doesn’t work. Countries where abortion is against the law don’t lead the league tables for the fewest abortions. Surprise, surprise, the law is good for making us know our guilt; not good at making us good.
- Free access to contraception and advice helps a bit. That may be why the UK’s rate is one in five pregnancies, not one in four. It could be made better all over the world. Pro-lifers and pro-choicers could congregate in that space and work together to improve our societies.
- Killing our unborn is (surely obviously) a symptom, not a problem, and the problem is that we’re all broken, and the solution is meeting the kindness of God.
