So many abortion opponents seem to have a, "That could have been me." attitude. They all claim they were born to single impoverished mothers who could have aborted them.
It's a weird mix of utter narcissism and a martyr complex.
Under the same logic, if a mother has a miscarriage or stillborn and decides that's her last pregnancy, it still could have been them. Or if a baby is born a vegetable without any brain, and the child lives, and the mother decides that's her last baby, then "that could have been them" too.
It's just a stupidly egotistical approach to life.
I think many of the high-end demagogues couldn't give less of a shit about abortion happening or not. It's just an excuse to get money out of religious rubes the same way televangelists do.
If they really, desperately, wanted women to carry their unwanted pregnancies to term and raise the child, they'd be out there picketing state offices and crying about how there needs to be massive increases and new programs to give women government funding to raise a child. Gigantic new childcare programs at every college and highschool, childcare grants for working mothers, etc, etc, etc.
also churches not forbidding abortion AND birth control
