If opinion research reveals anything about Americans’ attitudes toward abortion, it’s that they don’t like to think about it – period….
Whatever the reasons for it, New York’s abortion taboo plainly cripples the city’s ability to deal maturely with some of its most pressing social problems.
Take absentee fathers – one of the strongest predictors of poverty and the plight of some one-third of city children.
It’s hard to deny that the act of abortion – essentially, the violent destruction of a developing member of the next generation – makes a cultural mark, especially when practiced to the extent it is in NY….
Thus, an honest discussion would at least entertain the possibility that the easy availability of subsidized abortion weakens the cultural expectation that young men must take responsibility for their offspring.
