Something to remember

The November 1, 2009 issue of The Non Profit Times ranked the top 100 non-profits (Charities) as per their 2008 income. PPFA is Number 16 out of almost 1.2 million non profits with an income of over 1 Billion dollars in 2008 ($1,023,300,000) – This is perhaps the first year it crossed the billion dollar threshold.

Something I think the pro-life people need to understand better is just how much people want abortion. They'll pay for it, cheerfully, either themselves or through taxes, they'll donate for it, they'll march for it, they'll tolerate nearly any evil to preserve it in law. People want it. They want it because they know it allows them to have what they want most. They've made the calculation, easily and quickly in their minds: "If we outlaw this obviously evil thing, then we will go back to a time when we could not hop in and out of bed with whomever we pleased."

They've had 400 years of philosophers telling them that evil is more or less unimportant anyway, or at least, the kind of evil you don't have to see too close up, so it's something they just don't care about very much any more.

People want abortion.
