Does Rhetoric Reduce the Number of Abortions?

By Kevin DeYoung

It would seem to be commonsense, as indeed the pro-choice Guttmacher Institute suggests, that if abortion services are more difficult to obtain (i.e., abortion funding decreases, abortion access is more limited, more restrictions on abortion are put in place) that fewer women will have abortions. And yet, some evangelicals and Catholics continue to argue that our politicians can do just the opposite of all this and still be serious about reducing abortions.
