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.
