Contraception Is Not the Solution to Abortion

Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable.
— Chesterton, G.K. Illustrated London News. 23 Oct 1909.

The argument that contraception (or abortion) “reduces the number of unwanted children” is an empty one. The selfish wants of one’s parents has no bearing on one’s right to exist. Contraception and abortion are inextricable, yes, not because contraception is the solution to abortion, but because contraception is abortion’s close cousin, and likewise a grave evil. Contraception may not always be explicit murder (though it often is), but it teaches parents to see their children as “choices,” not “human beings,” which is the philosophy of abortion and murder. While it is unpopular to assert, the truth is pro-contraception arguments are poorly disguised pro-infanticide arguments.
