It's called "bro-choice,” which is men supporting pro-abortion rights for sexual reasons.
Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America calls it a hedonistic, selfish new trend that has spread across social media sites.
She says the term began during the recent abortion debate in Texas, where the legislature just passed a law banning abortions after 20 weeks. A male pro-abortion writer coined the term in an article.
“One of the reasons he gave was, if abortion is illegal, there’s going to be less woman willing to have casual sex with you outside of marriage,” Hawkins tells OneNewsNow.
The premise of those supporting “bro-choice” is to enjoy casual sex outside of marriage, “and there should be absolutely no consequences,” says Hawkins.
Hawkins believes this is not indicative of where college-age men and women are headed long-term. But she says pro-life supporters need to be aware of this campaign and fight back.
An education researcher recently published an article about Common Core that will concern, even frighten, parents unfamiliar with the goals of the standards.
