I’m going out on a limb here saying something, but a few questions must be posed…
I don’t want to be taken as “heartless.” if you have had an abortion, I don’t mean any of this as a personal attack. This is for those who are dead set that they think abortion is something that is a normal healthcare or “family planning” necessity.
Say you are “pro-abortion” to prevent children being “unwanted.” Are you saying the answer is to put an unplanned child down like a dog instead of take care of him or her?
I don’t understand the “logic.” There are plenty of barren parents who will adopt if someone absolutely can’t handle raising a child. The truth is, how many of these children would grow up in the home they were born in perfectly happy after the mother or father or both realize that child had nothing to do with the mothers inconvenience or even her emotional pain and rise to the priveledge of raising him or her? How many do all the time? It’s amazing what someone will do when the challenge is given. I was an unplanned child conceived out of wedlock to parents who couldn’t afford a child. Guess what? I was given an imperfect, but happy childhood.
How can this possibly be about a woman’s choice of a medical procedure to remove a parasitical growth in her own body as some have twisted the issue to become? Babies are being sliced up in the womb regularly at the same age and size my babies were born at 28 weeks gestation at less than 3lbs each. The groups like Planned Parenthood (just one of many, it’s just the most known for cramming abortion as normal down the throats of the past 2 generations) are pawning this a women’s healthcare right. A pap smear, pelvic exam or mammogram is not even close to the same as the barbaric “procedures” being performed to end the life of an “unplanned” child.
Then you have these folks that hold their guns and won’t even budge saying that partial birth abortion must be protected and even funded by taxpayers. They say this because they think it may be necessary to save the life of the mother. The baby is developed enough to survive, and has had their entire body birthed except for the head. I’m no genius but, if the mother is going to die having this baby, wouldn’t this kill her? Really, what is this all about?
Then you have reasons that get thrown out as a way to portray pro-lifers as heartless and cruel. Like in the rape and incest argument. Let’s say these two reasons are the only way legally a child could be aborted. How many actually would happen? I venture to say it is going to be rare. I have no doubt this has to be awful pain to live with. But even still, does the helpless child whose life depends on that mother need to be the one to pay the consequences of this?
The liberal media, politicians who are too stubborn to look at the facts, and those who for some reason or another are stone cold for abortion continue to stop up their ears to logic and common sense. Why? Have we really become such a barbaric, hedonistic society that doing what feels good or is convenient, is easier or less painful has to be the only way? What happened to men and women who act responsibly even to their own detriment? What makes me so terrible to believe that every child should be given a chance?
I think what bothers me the most is that abortion is how we as humans have explained away what is unthinkable as someone’s right to do as they pleased. And because of it, to stand up an be someone who believes in life makes someone intolerant and cruel. What’s next?
Please feel free to comment. Just keep it civil. Give good reasons for what you say.
