More than half of abortions in the U.S. are from women in their 20′s.
I am burdened for the young women of our nation. My heart hurts for the young, 20-year old, second generation Mexican-American woman facing her second pregnancy while working full time and trying to go to college. She is the face of abortion in this country; her and young minority women like her.
I may be off, but I am sure that these young minority girls don’t get much out of most news debates over abortion. After all, what does a white man in his late 50’s know about what she is going through? How can an older, finely dressed lady wearing a strand of pearls with matching earrings say that she "represents" this young women’s right to choose? I’m just saying. And now, with statistics confirming that this generation is pro-life, honestly these liberal feminist women feel like intruders to me and my girl-friends.
