Abortion has dominated headlines in recent days. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld an Arkansas abortion law that requires providers of chemical abortions to have hospital admitting privileges. Another court ruled that Kentucky's recent ban on abortions after 11-weeks will be put on hold until November. So why all the news coverage over something that is considered a constitutional right? After all, isn't it a woman's right to choose? Abortion has been legal since 1973 but attitudes toward unborn life are changing and so are the laws. Abortion is in the news so much because it involves a human being at its very earliest and most vulnerable stage of life. And as more Americans become aware of this truth they'll continue to embrace policies that protect the tiniest life among us.
