After Friday’s nationwide March for Life, Alan Levonovitz, assistant professor of religion at James Madison University, asks obvious questions:
Why, as I look out on the sea of signs at today’s the March for Life, do I see nothing about maternity leave, much less paternity leave? Why aren’t expansive parental leave policies front and center on every pro-life website, and on the lips of every pro-life politician?
Why does every speaker fail to mention contraception? Why isn’t sex education front and center on every pro-life website, and on the lips of every pro-life politician?
Why is adoption mentioned only in passing, if it is mentioned at all?
To their credit, I saw several liberal sentiments at the march held by St. Brendan’s yesterday morning. We would be better off if abortion rights partisans would call themselves “pro-abortion” and its opponents “anti-abortion.”
