The abortion debate is not about difficult circumstances. It’s about sexual freedom

Sep 24, 2021 by

by Jonathon Van Maren, LifeSite: Abortion allows men and women to use each other. Adults get the sex; children pay the price; the abortion industry makes a killing. As Roe v. Wade heads toward a Supreme Court reckoning, the abortion wars are heating up.
