This question needs to be viewed differently by Christians because I am NOT heartless nor soul-less; and I resent the ignorant accusation as most non-Christians do.
I am not originally from Seattle. I grew up in the bible-believing, rural Heartland of the Midwest. I also used to be a Christian. A couple of decades ago when I was going through these hard decisions with my college / career age Christian friends - the Christians they had to turn to at the time were as out of touch then as they STILL seem to be.
Out of my five Christian friends who chose to have an abortion, only one would have been considered too promiscuous. The others just got caught up in a moment with the opposite sex - defenseless, and really not knowing how to respond. (This also happens to LOTS of girls who happen to NOT get pregnant during sexual encounters - yeah, many of them still feel guilt and shame, too.) Sure, these girls were educated on the 'fact' that both pre-marital sex and abortion were wrong and life begins at conception - but, NO ONE taught them about LIFE or how to be anything other than a good Christian girl - and when they failed, WOW!
