Your guess is as good as mine, but I'd take a guess that political pro-lifers care about only one thing: control. They don't care about saving babies. How can I say this?
...abortion rates during the period of time investigated (2008-2011) are the lowest they’ve ever been in the 40 years since abortion was legalized in the United Stated under Roe v. Wade. And, the researchers concluded, it was not the restrictive laws or the anti-sex “well you shouldn’t spread your legs if you can’t handle the consequences” rhetoric that we have to thank. It’s…. drum roll… more access to affordable and effective birth control.
If they cared about saving babies, they wouldn't whine about having to cover the cost of other people's birth control. If they cared about saving babies, they would invest in accurate and informative safer sex education in schools. However anti-abortionists are most commonly against both of these things. (We're not even going to go into their lack of support over mothers, regardless of their poverty level.)
I just don't understand. You're not going to have a society that doesn't have sex. It's not going to happen. Conservative measures to guilt and shame and fear people into abstaining only serves to cause unwanted pregnancies through ignorance and lack of affordable birth control options. A number of these pregnancies will always end in abortion. Even if it isn't legal.
They don't care about preventing unwanted pregnancies, they just want to make sure you feel they are more powerful than you, that they're in control and self-righteous in their belief that they should have more of a say in your health and your family than you do.
Regardless of whether or not you believe people should be getting abortions, these political pro-lifers should worry you with their motives. And if you are pro-life and can't stand the thought of anyone on the planet having an abortion, you need to take a look at the facts and start supporting any measure possible to distribute affordable birth control and secular, accurate sex education throughout your community. Doing anything else is hypocrisy at best, pure and simple.

I write erotic romance, or romantic erotica. I read those genres a lot, too. But also scifi, alternate history, historical fiction, fantasy, and more.
