Abortion and Single-Issue Politics

Susan B. Komen for the CureToday’s flap over a decision by Susan G. Komen for the Cure to cease funding groups that are under government investigation has again brought to the fore, the question of single-issue politics.

Yesterday, we read of a new policy by the nation’s largest breast cancer charity, “barring grants to organizations that are under investigation by local, state, or federal authorities.” Today the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood Federation of America and its supporters, exerted a monumental effort to retaliate.

In 1971, the Southern Baptist Convention adopted a resolution on abortion which called upon society to affirm “a high view of the sanctity of human life” but to “work for legislation that will allow the possibility of abortion under such conditions as rape, incest, clear evidence of severe fetal deformity, and carefully ascertained evidence of the likelihood of damage to the emotional, mental, and physical health of the mother.”

In the blog post, Wintery Knight connects Planned Parenthood’s sex education agenda to increased premarital sex and to the destruction of marriage. The Knight is right. To push the Knight’s point further, when there is no marriage or when the marriage is not stable, the woman can be tempted to view a newly conceived dependent as a dangerous threat to her lifestyle and the man might consider avoiding future child support costs a sufficient justification to view his unborn baby as a merely “potential life”.

The only cures to the occasional unplanned, unwanted baby are:  Continue reading
