Prager University Video: Europe More Pro-Life Than The U.S.?

Well, it’s true, according to a new video from Prager University. Here’s the video:

Here are some of the highlights:

In the U.S., all states allow abortions up to 20 weeks, and many states (including New Mexico, where I currently live) have no abortion restrictions.

11 states prohibit abortion after 20 weeks; 20 states prohibit abortions after the point of viability (23-25 weeks); 3 states prohibit abortion after the 28th week; and last, and in my opinion also least, 7 states and Washington DC allow abortions to occur at any point during the pregnancy.

But in Belgium and Germany, abortion is prohibited after 12 weeks unless the life of the mother is in danger; Belgium also has a 6 day waiting period. In Finland, abortion is unrestricted until the 12th week–and even then, women must provide a compelling reason to get an abortion.

The video provides even more examples.

Europe, the continent liberals look up to, has fairly draconian abortion laws (by American pro-choice standards). So, as I said in my post about Sweden, yes, maybe we should copy Europe. Let’s make abortion laws more restrictive.
