Abortion as “social good” still has a stigma

The stigma against having a baby out of wedlock has faded.  And the stigma against having an abortion continues.   Some pro-abortion activists are trying to erase that stigma by making the case that abortion is nothing to feel bad about and is, in fact, a “social good.”  But those efforts are flying in the face of  women’s real experience.  So says Gary Bauer, who gives the details and the statistics.
