Religious Schools and Abortion

Apparently a new study finds that private religious school students are more likely to have an abortion than are public school students. Fascinating and very sad. I haven't looked too closely at the validity of the study, but regardless, the fact that it's even close should wake us up to a few things.

It's a good example of how Christians have become soaked with contemporary values, and the fact that the little concessions we make impact our overall ideals and outlooks in a big way.

Far too many people---parents, that is---will be adamantly pro-life, but when push comes to shove in the form of a pregnant daughter they will justify the supposed difficult choice of taking her to the next town over in order to keep her supposed future bright. This happens much more often than most of us think, and it becomes pretty commonplace and entrenched after a generation has grown up with it.
