El Salvador abortionby Kelli

In countries where abortion is currently illegal, abortion advocates tend to exploit the “hard cases” (rape, incest, life of the mother) to use as weapons in their battle to liberalize abortion law.

The “women’s health” movement’s end goal isn’t really the betterment of women in general – it’s the removal of all roadblocks to abortion. And countries who resist the worldwide death march are often under immense international pressure to change their stance on the sanctity of human life.

Although the court had upheld an 8-foot buffer zone in Colorado in 2000, the Massachusetts law passed in 2007 went 27 feet farther.

It is already well established that “bro-choice” men have a vested interest in keeping abortion legal, as put so well by Ben Sherman at Burnt Orange Report last year when writing in fear of Texas’ sweeping pro-life legislation (which did pass, surely crimping Ben’s sleazy sex life):
