In order to understand advocates of abortion you need to grasp their motivation. Texas A&M economics professor Jason Lindo is an example. It’s not about the sanctity of life, but the economics. He said unwanted children will “do worse in school, have more behavioral and social issues, lower earnings, poorer health and increased likelihood of criminal involvement.” Without the widespread use of abortion, taxpayers will be burdened with costs of “increased health care and reliance on public assistance.” This so-called educated person made sweeping assumptions against an entire segment of society. It’s called eugenics, the elimination of the undesirables. If we had to choose between economic professors and the unplanned, my pick is for the latter.
