Ever since the Zika crisis started, At Massachusetts Citizens for Life, we have been saying that it would be used as an excuse to demand more abortions and instead we should be dealing with the mosquitoes that carry the virus.
This is a great piece by a scientist (because true science does tend to come back to being pro-life) talking about controlling mosquitoes, not babies.
Abortion rates are already increasing across the globe, driven by international agencies and governmental institutions, which adopt the false Malthusian view that population growth causes famine. As a result, large sums of taxpayer money are directed towards population control without due consideration of the impact on the future social structure in the less-developed East. These antisocial elements will use the Zika outbreak as another reason to advocate abortions.
Efforts against Zika will have significant impact only if they use proven scientific methods to combat the primary Zika-transmitting agent — the Aedes mosquito. … It’s not human population we need to reduce, but the population of disease-carrying mosquitos.
