Abortion Clinics Offer Discounts for Aborting Baby Earlier in Pregnancy, That Doesn’t Help Poor Women

Recently, we’ve been reading a lot about how closing unsafe abortion mills will put poor women at “risk” in Ohio. (Read my response as published in the Toledo Blade here.)

blackprolife22At Ohio Right to Life, we read these opinions knowing that the heart of what they are arguing for is the abortion of poor babies–children whose socio-economic status is beyond their control.

To counter their arguments, we are promoting free and low-cost health care alternatives–resources that give poor women and children real assistance.

Abortion is a very expensive procedure. We need to let women know that there are better and moral ways to spend their limited resources. Just look at how much Capital Care Network of Toledo charges women to kill their children:

If the abortion industry cares so much about poor women, why do they charge so much?

The truth is that they don’t care about them. Abortion costs–physically, emotionally, and yes, monetarily.

As Secular Pro-Life pointed out recently, a 2013 Gallup poll shows that low-income Americans tend to be more pro-life. The “pro-choice” identity is claimed by higher income earners. Closing down abortion mills does not hurt poor women and their babies–it hurts the pro-choice elite and the abortion industry who would otherwise profit from taking the lives of the poor.
