Look at the careful words chosen by this British editorial:
No doubt Ireland has been the victim of a savagely tight monetary policy - given its specific needs. But the deeper truth is that Britain, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, the US, and Japan are in varying states of fiscal ruin, and those tipping into demographic decline (unlike young Ireland) have an underlying cancer that is even more deadly. The West cannot support its gold-plated state structures from an aging workforce and depleted tax base.
All those terms mean societies that dislike children, countries that have ruined their young and have thrown them away rather than let them grow and prosper. Women deserve better than abortion, and deserve more options and real choices than the ones society is foisting upon them now. Even in the face of this major 'demographic winter' and 'aging' of our population, what message do colleges send to pregnant women in their midst? Right now, a pregnancy center is in every major community and yet how many women realize how many good choices are all around them?
We will turn this 'winter' into a spring of life only by continuing the battle, pushing for real choices for women, supporting families and once again loving every life.
