The headline and one comment in the story appear to downplay politics and lawmaking, but the whole abortion culture we face is the result of lawmaking by the Supreme Court. To enact protective legislation to the extent that the federal courts allow undoubtedly saves lives, many thousands of them. The research is readily available, for example, on the beneficial effects of legal requirements for parental consent for teenagers who become pregnant. And since abortions harm women, not just children, this is work that is for women as well as children. There are many components to changing the culture, and in our country, changing the law is one of those components. All types of pro-life efforts are quite necessary, and no one needs to cast aspersions at one type, such as politics/lawmaking, in order to make another type look better.
