I hate to tell you this, but thousands more women died
because abortion wasn't illegal than now. They died because they weren't
allowed to recieve a safe medical procedure. Few women truly die from an
abortion. Check your facts before you pretend you know what your talking
Gale, I hate to tell you this, but these are the facts. Women
do truly die
It makes me sick to see Pro-Choicers described as "abortion
supporters". Don't you realize how truly uninformed you are? The bulk of
Pro-Choice advicates aer for CHOICE, not for abortion.
Then what are you supporting? Do you not support the legal right for women
to abort? Doesn't that mean that you support legalized abortion? And
please, feel free to call me anti-abortion if you like.
We feel that the choice should be for the individual that is carying
the child, not for bureacratic snobs who will never even know our
So pro-life people are bureaucratic snobs?
I am 19 years old, and I have a three year old son. When I was
sixteen, and pregnant, at first I decided to end the pregnancy. In the
end, however, I knew that I couldn't. That was MY choice, and it had
nothing to do with abortion, murder, or religion. I just couldn't. It
wasn't for me.
I commend you for deciding to go through with the pregnancy at such a
That doesn't mean that I, or anyone else, has the right to make that
decision for someone else. If I had aborted my son, would you have known
about it? Would you have lost sleep, had dreams of how he would be like?
I, and only I, would have that.
No, I would not have known about it. The only reason I, as a pro-life
person, believe that abortion isn't a private issue is because it
ingringes on the rights of another human being.
To be fair, if not wordy, I have to admit it also make sme sick to see
immature girls, and adults, use abortion as a form of birth control.
Why? If abortion doesn't take a life, then why is it a problem if abortion
is used as birth control? If abortion does take a life, then why do you
think the taking of this life is a private matter?
It's funny, people usually accuse pro-lifers for being against abortion
because they want to
"punish" a woman for having sex. Then, some pro-choicers turn around and
say that they don't like it when women use abortion "as a form of birth
control." They imply that it's more justifiable for a woman to abort if
she isn't using it as birth control, because she was careless, or had
multiple sex partners. This insinuates that one who aborts because she was
promiscuous or careless has a less valid reason for her abortion. Isn't
this "punishing" women for their sexual habits?
However, I feel that if the have so little emotion that that decision
didn't rip their hearts out, maybe those babies were better off.
Oh, so a child is better off dead than with someone who might be
abusive? Does that mean we should kill children who born and are
being abused? Are you saying that
women are just monsters who will surely abuse any unplanned children if
they don't abort?
No one can say that those girls would take care of their babies while
they were pregnant.
What? ALL women with unplanned pregnancies are not going to take care of
their unborn children?
"Wanting" or "planning" a pregnancy does not guarantee that a woman will
take care of the child while pregnant either. Many women who do things
that could harm their unborn child are carrying children they "planned."
Adoption is a nice alternative, of course, and helps many people. But
if the mother really cares so little, what's to stop them from doing
drugs, contracting diseases, and generally creating a life of hardship and
agony for that child?
What will stop them? Gosh, I don't know... so if we can't stop a woman
from harming someone, let's let her kill the person! Great idea!
Seriously, more support and education perhaps? A society that doesn't look
at single pregnant women like they are sluts? However, wanting and
planning the pregnancy doesn't guarantee that a woman won't harm her
child. Sometimes, drug addiction can be too powerful. Sometimes, a
personal condition is just too powerful -- for example, I remember seeing
a show a while ago (I am sorry, I don't remember exactly when) about
bulemia, and pregnant women who had the condition. These women
wanted and loved their children, yet they were essentially starving their
children to death because, in the quest to be nice and skinny, like women
are, *ahem* "supposed" to be, (I will refrain from going off on my "Why do
we, as a society, place so much emphasis on women being skinny" tirade)
their bulemia had gone out of control and they couldn't stop. Does this
mean that their unborn children should die because they aren't being taken
care of? We should help the mothers in need, not kill the unborn.
What I am saying is that nothing is cut and dry- every woman has to
know her circumstances, has to want to bring life into the world. Would
you enjoy being forced to carry a baby for nine months if you hated the
child within you?
Most women don't abort because they hate their child. But to answer your
question, if I was pregnant and I hated my child (I can't imagine this),
no, I suppose I wouldn't enjoy the pregnancy. Does hate for ones child
justify killing the child?
