This is why, now, as ever, the best approach to abortion is to make it, wherever possible, unnecessary—by making contraception easily available, providing sex education, and improving social services so that raising children is not such an economic burden. Once a woman is pregnant with a child she does not want, your only option is to use state force to inflict violence against an actual human in the name of preventing violence to a potential human. I'm pro-choice in pretty much all circumstances, but I understand why some people come down in a different place. Douthat, in his column, quotes several pro-choice writers acknowledging the violence of their position. I wish Douthat were honest enough to acknowledge the violence of his.
