On April 23 Ms. blog posted what it called the “10 worst abortion myths – and how to refute them.”
That is a post in itself, and feel free to refute their refutations. I’m listing them on page 2. I notice they sometimes misstate our position. In other words, they invent their own myths and call them ours.
But my weekend challenge is to name one or more of the worst pro-abortion myths and refute them.
One of the other side’s worst lies is highlighted in the National Right to Life ad on the right. (Click to enlarge.)
Following are what Ms. says are “some of the common myths about abortion”…
Myth 1: Even if the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, abortion would still be legal.
Myth 2: American women are able to have legal abortion on demand at any stage of pregnancy in all 50 states.
Myth 3: Women who have abortions are selfish and self-centered.
Myth 4: Abortions cause pain for the fetus.
Myth 5: Abortions are readily available across the country.
Myth 6: Abortion is a very dangerous procedure.
Myth 7: Abortion providers are in it to make a lot of money.
Myth 8: If a woman doesn’t want to have a child, she should use contraception or abstain.
Myth 9: Women have multiple abortions rather than using birth control.
Myth 10: Many women who have had abortions are traumatized and suffer from “post-abortion stress syndrome.”
