Do improvements in technology change views on abortion?

Posted By on October 29, 2019

It has been 26 years since the U.S. Supreme Court decided on Roe v. Wade. In 1973, our nine justices decided that pregnant women should have the right to legally choose an abortion (would it be different today?). ChannelMumUltrasoundOur national debate has continued non-stop for decades, but the call is getting louder to re-address the issue …  and the debate pits the right of a women to do as she wishes with her body (as well as the “being” inside her) against the what others see as the “right to life.” Should we be protecting the unborn?

It is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore  what we now see with the help of advancements in medical imaging, let alone what we know from botched abortions and early births. The decision is likely to become more difficult for those who already struggle with supporting abortion … especially in the third trimester or up until the time of birth.

It is likely the more we learn about the development of human life in the womb, the harder it will be to not want to do something to protect the unborn — a “little” progress towards protecting life is better than abortion on demand status quo.
