Last week, in part two of our series, we talked about Rep. Gary Stubblefield’s bill (HB2159), which would have made clear that a pregnant woman has the right to defend her unborn child against criminal assault. This week, we’ll briefly highlight another great pro-life bill that didn’t pass last session—one by Rep. Bruce Westerman.
The following is a guest post from Adrianne Redding. Adrianne is currently studying Political Science at John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.
Conservatives, especially pro-life conservatives, are often viewed by the media, and perhaps the general public, as hard-nosed, insensitive, and downright cold. Many people think that all pro-lifers are concerned about is a “blob of tissue,” and don’t even look at the troubled girl or woman right in front of them.
But the reason we—especially we female pro-lifers—are against abortion is not just because of the consequences to the child in the womb, but also the consequences the young woman will have to face afterward.
