Actor Mehcad Brooks made this ad for the Center for Reproductive Rights, celebrating the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and legalized abortion. What do we learn from this video?
In classical legal theory, a major method of analysis of a case, a policy, or a crime is to ask the question, “Cui bono?” “To whose good?” That is, “who benefits?” (The person who benefits the most from a crime may be a prime suspect. Whether a proposed government program benefits the general public or a political crony tells us much about its value.) Here we see who benefits from legalized abortion: Men who want to have sex with women with no consequences, or, as Mehcad says here, “no limits.” No need to get married, no need to take care of a child, no need to even pay child support. Sexual paradise for men–what for women? what for the man’s own sons and daughters that he wants to abort?
I have heard that polls of women getting an abortion show that a vast number–a majority, I heard–say, “I wanted to keep the baby, but my boyfriend/husband talked me into getting an abortion.” (I can’t find the source. If anyone knows it, please let me know in the comments.) So much for “pro-choice.” So much for feminism.
