In retrospect, I suppose I could have worded this differently. The 3% stat comes from several sources, including factcheck.org. “Focus” refers to PP’s services, of which, 97% are non-abortion related. Those services are finite, and can indeed be measured.
Why “Christian”? Well, I’ve never read about a group of Jews, Muslims, Lutherans, Hindus or even Catholics lined up with picket signs outside an abortion clinic. I’m sure there are a few. But I was, as it happens, focusing on the greater number of fundamentalist Christians to back my sentiment.
Then I jumped to the generic “religion” because that’s precisely what drives their decision in the first place. The same religion responsible for centuries of oppression and violence and appalling behavior they choose to ignore.
Hence the guy wearing blinders.
