Is the Movement to Ban Abortion Really about Babies?

#STRaskStand to Reason

Questions about why pro-lifers don’t support making everything that has to do with having and raising a baby free if the movement is really about babies and whether there are times when Christians should use rhetoric as a tool of persuasion.

* If the movement to ban abortion were really about babies, wouldn’t pro-lifers support making everything involving babies free (prenatal care, delivery, medical care, and schooling)?

* Are there times when Christians should use rhetoric as a tool in a situation where giving a detailed answer wouldn’t have as powerful an impact?
