War On Women: Old White Men

Why are men fighting for abortion harder then women?! I think we need to think about this….

How often is the pro-life movement maligned as a “War on Women” waged by old white men? If I had a dime…

But that’s politics. More often than not, truth takes a backseat to emotion and the ever-increasing urge to rile up the base. It’s a useful tool. And lately, destructive ideas need only a passionate, uneducated coalition to get the ball rolling.

To be consistent, though, I decided to check it out. Is the pro-life position merely an attack on women by old white men? I found a Pew Research Poll taken earlier this year. Here’s the breakdown:

Question: Is abortion Morally Wrong, Morally Acceptable, or Not a Moral Issue?

Morally Wrong: 45%

Morally Acceptable: 15%

Not a Moral Issue: 23%

Keypoints

  • 48% of men say abortion is Morally Wrong.
  • 50% of women say abortion is Morally Wrong.
  • 18% of men say abortion is Morally Acceptable.
  • 13% of women say abortion is Morally Acceptable.

Yes, the anti-life movement is a bloody one built on lies. You don’t have to be man to know that slaughtering unborn children is disgusting and immoral.
