Pro-choicers: Careers make children inconvenient

A traditional values expert says the attitude of many Americans toward abortion and children needs to change in order to further reduce abortions in this country.

The pro-life movement's primary aim has been to convince young people to not resort to abortion, and as a result, the numbers have gone down. But now, so-called career girl abortions are on the rise. Janice Crouse of Concerned Women for America (CWA) tells OneNewsNow that means many women are terminating the lives of their babies for the sake of not interrupting their careers.

Crouse, Janice (CWA)"I think it shows the callousness … that our whole culture has developed about abortion, that it's no more than just taking a pill," she laments. "You aren't quite ready to have a child right now, even if you're married, even if you're in a long-term relationship. If it's not convenient, just have an abortion; wait until it's more convenient."

But Crouse submits that America needs to understand that when conception takes place, it is not an inconvenience; it is a baby,

"It's clearly a matter of selfishness, of self-centeredness," she contends. "And I have to say that we have really perpetuated the myth that the only thing that's important to a woman these days is the salary that she can bring in, the status that her career adds to her worth and the fact that we have really created a culture where children are an inconvenience."

So she believes society needs to be educated on "the wonderful privilege that it is to be a mother" and the positive impact a child can have on one's life.
