Mohler gives five reasons why the abortion issue will not go away

Communications Staff — January 23, 2012

In his most recent “My Take” column at’s Belief Blog, R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of Southern Seminary, argues that the abortion issue will not evaporate from the life of American culture any time in the near future, offering five reasons why this is the case.

“When abortion rights advocates and their allies ask why the abortion issue will not just go away, they really mean to ask why, given the stark reality of Roe, the pro-life movement has not dissipated and retreated into the history books,” Mohler writes.

Mohler’s five reasons pertain to the following: the radical character of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision; evangelical Christianity’s interest in the issue; the massive quantity of abortions since Roe v. Wade; abortion’s threat to undermine the common perception of human dignity; and the advent of imaging technologies.
