New Children’s Book Proselytizes Abortion

Creators of a new children’s book have raised more than $20,000 online to publish their project. The title? What’s an Abortion, Anyway? Creators say they also plan to send 300 copies to libraries across the country.

“We believe in building a world for kids and adults where abortion is normalized as another outcome of pregnancy,” reads the fundraising site. But this raises an important question. If abortion is “just another outcome of pregnancy,” why does it require a $20,000 effort to “normalize” it? How normal can something be if it takes a fundraising and propaganda effort just to convince the world how normal it is? 

Here’s one thing this sad campaign gets right: it is incredibly important what we teach our children. Very young kids don’t need to know what an abortion is until parents feel they’re ready. But it’s never too early to teach our kids that each person, no matter how small, was created on purpose by a good God and therefore has an inherent dignity no one can, or should, ever steal.
