As usual, a pro-abortion advocate that doesn’t know the facts behind what drives women to kill their unborn children.
From a Guttmacher Institute study for the year 2008…
Forty-two percent of women obtaining abortions have incomes below 100% of the federal poverty level ($10,830 for a single woman with no children).
Eighteen percent of U.S. women obtaining abortions are teenagers; those aged 15–17 obtain 6% of all abortions, 18–19-year-olds obtain 11%, and teens younger than 15 obtain 0.4%.
Remember, these numbers come from the Guttmacher Institute, a wildly biased pro-abortion research organization spawned by Planned Parenthood. You must use critical reasoning when analyzing their findings. Notice that eighteen percent of all abortions are performed on teenagers? How many 13-19 year olds do you think were making more than $10,830 a year in 2008? Most teenagers living with their parents are in school and don’t even earn an income. Do you see how the numbers are skewed to paint a picture that is ‘less than honest’? But even with all of the non-income earning teenagers thrown into the numbers, the percentage of those who live below the poverty line and elect to kill their unborn children is still only forty-two percent of all abortions. And of course, not all of these women killed their children simply because they were poor.

As you can see, your premise is incorrect. Poverty is not the number one reason behind abortion. Selfishness is. And do you really think a living human being should be killed because of money?
Stand for the dignity of human life. Stand against human abortion.
