Daily chart: global abortion rates. Having fallen precipitously during the 1990s, the global abortion rate has now stalled, according to a new paper. In some parts of the world, the number of abortions termed as “unsafe” is on the rise. Laws that restrict abortion did not seem to lower the number of procedures—on the contrary, restrictive laws were associated with higher abortion rates.

Did the pro-life movement just hear that?

And this is precisely why Congressman Ron Paul believes laws prohibiting abortion would be ineffective unless the morality of our culture changed first. Unlike other politicians, Paul does not believe in putting the cart before the horse. Law should reflect the culture, not proscribe it.
