Laws and Morality

If sex-selective abortion is as big a problem in Canada as Kale believes, Arthur says the solution is education and outreach. - Joyce Arthur in the Toronto Sun

Our Prime Minster, Stephen Harper, also believes that education, "changing hearts and minds", is the solution to the problem of abortion. That is certainly true; however doesn't history show that it is laws that teach people what is right and wrong?

While it would be wonderful if people could be convinced of the right thing to do, it is really not pragmatic. Legislation is what keeps most people from committing crimes, but then eliminating our own young isn't seen as anything criminal. If abortion was made illegal, we might have a chance of convincing some people that it is immoral.
