That is not to say that we should simply ignore the negative side-effects of evil actions, but we must maintain a sense of perspective. The act of abortion is much worse than cancer, which in turn is worse than the negative economic effects of abortion. Abortion is a blight upon society that harms the born and unborn alike, and if we have any hope of ending it we must stick to the heart of the issue and keep the rights of the fetus at the center of the abortion debate.

It seems to me that pro-lifers spend an inordinate amount of time focusing on relatively unimportant issues. I’ve written before about accusations of racism against Planned Parenthood. Even if Planned Parenthood is full of racists (and I suspect it is not), racism is unimportant next to mass infanticide. Another distraction is cancer. Depending on which study you consult, abortion may or may not increase the odds of a woman getting breast cancer. Pro-lifers make much of the alleged abortion-cancer link but cancer is a non-issue compared to abortion itself. Murder is immoral, cancerous cells are not.
