But they clearly don’t care. At least, not enough to actually think seriously about the issue.
Consider this: If you’re right, and the abortion industry is just out for money, why is the only organization that seriously collects abortion statistics (i.e. Guttmacher) a product of that industry? They wouldn’t collect those statistics out of the goodness of their heart, right? They must instead be thinking seriously enough about the issue to want accurate data about abortion to guide their business decisions.
So if the abortion industry thinks having the data is important enough to create an organization dedicated to collecting+analyzing that data, why haven’t the pro-life groups done the same? Indeed, why have pro-life politicians tried to cut funding for groups collecting abortion statistics?
I believe the answer is that most pro-life people don’t actually care enough. They prefer the issue to be black and white, us vs them. Abortion to them is a jihad, and the struggle of good against evil does not have room for questions like “what if a crusade isn’t the right way to take back the holy land?” Admitting that abortion research is valuable is tantamount to admitting that there is something about abortion we don’t know, and pro-lifers already know everything they need to know about abortion: it’s evil.
So instead of thinking seriously about the issues, pro-lifers make up stories about human trafficking or organ harvesting to vilify the “them” as best they can, donate to whatever organization their religious leaders say to, vote for any politician that gives them lip service, while covering their ears to what effect these “best efforts” are actually having on abortion rates.
