An Open Letter To Pro-Lifers

posted on November 12, 2012

At First Things Michael J. New pens a letter to his fellow “pro-lifers,” following the defeat of many pro-life candidates in last week’s election, most notably Mitt Romney. New acknowledges, “The results of Tuesday’s presidential election were certainly disappointing,” especially since President Obama “might get the opportunity to appoint as many as four new” justicies to the Supreme Court, whom News assumes will back Roe. v. Wade. Yet New insists that the pro-life movement shouldn’t dispair. “The number of abortions has declined from 1.6 million in 1990 to about 1.2 million in 2008. That is 1.2 million too many. But it is also a 25 percent decline.”
