Keeping abortion legal is pro-life

If you don’t believe in abortion, don’t. Those of us who supported Roe v. Wade never took that choice away from you. Now please don’t assume what’s best for others. Would you like your 12-year-old daughter or granddaughter to carry her rapist’s child? Abortion can be “pro-life” for the mother, the family and possibly the baby who might otherwise be born with insurmountable health problems or be raised in an adverse situation as an unwanted child. (Follow the biography of the Parkland High shooter.)
There’s a lot to be said for adoption not always being the answer either, and one study speculates that a major drop in crime in the United States between 1991 and 2014 may be attributable to the availability of legalized abortion. (See the Stanford Law publication by John J Donahue III and Steven D. Levitt.) Don’t let New Hampshire become a place where women can’t make the best choice for themselves and their families. Vote for senators and representatives (state and national) who will preserve this right. Those who are truly pro-life will also work for parental leave legislation, healthcare for all, childcare subsidies and environmental policies that will save our earth for future generations. Funding good sex education programs could also reduce the dilemma. Give the Democrats a chance to work on all these life support policies. Vote blue in 2022.
