Why do you think some women throw their new born babies into dumpsters?
Legalizing abortion in America was spearheaded under the guise of Life of mother abortions. The Left wanted everyone believing that Roe V Wade was mostly to do with the safety of mothers.
This of course was pure deception from the Left, AS ALWAYS. The Left was never willing to compromise by passing a law allowing extreme case abortions only. It was always about getting their foot in the door, and once opened, leading to the debauchery supported by the Democrat Party today.
