'Consumer heaven' doesn't allow room for babies

A misunderstanding of beauty is one of the leading causes of abortion

James Borkowski, executive director for Signal Hill, believes an oversexualized culture allows for abortion because it destroys human beauty, dignity, and life.
"Young people are being objectified, pressured, and oversexualized, not only earlier than ever, but more often than ever," he said at the North Shore Pro-Life Society's annual general meeting March 6. "There are a lot of people at risk if human worth is not intrinsic."

The outrageous calls from culture to be more attractive, successful, and powerful are destroying women's views of beauty. Borkowski called it an epidemic, saying the sexual pressure put on 13-year-old girls today is equivalent to the pressure put on 18-year-olds a generation ago.
