Recently, Tony Campolo appeared on the Albert Mohler Show. Mr. Campolo provided his opinion on the abortion issue. He said abortions go down when the economy is good. He said we should raise the minimum wage and provide healthcare and daycare so poorer women will be in a better financial position to give birth to their babies. In other words, he is saying “Give us some money or we will kill the babies.”
Also, Mr. Campolo said we shouldn’t outlaw abortions because the number of illegal abortions will go up. In other words, he is saying don’t make a law because it causes some to break the law. Should we not have laws against theft because then some will break the law? Should we not have laws against murder because then some will break the law?
The pro-abortion (anti-consequence) crowd has silly reasoning indeed!
