I’m definitely more pro-life. The only time I would support an a.bortion is in the case that birth would threaten the life of either the mother or the child. Otherwise, it’s murder, and cold-blooded at that. Life is the most precious thing we have in this world. With all the talk about not fighting wars or getting involved in foreign situations because of the possible loss of life, we as Americans seem perfectly fine to kill a million of our own children every year.
I agree with pickypicky. People totally abandon the idea of adoption. There are so many loving and caring people out there unable to have a child of their own, and who would gladly take a baby as opposed to seeing it aborted. If the US didn’t have such stringent adoption laws maybe potential parents wouldn’t have to travel to China or Russia to adopt children, and as such rescue millions of kids that are either to be murdered or bounced around in the foster care system until they turn 18.
Pro-Life. Abor.tion=murder. How can you force an innocent child give up his/her life in order to make yours "more convenient"?
Ronald Reagan once said: "I've noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.”
Even in cases or ra.pe or in cases which the child has a deformity, abor.tion is still murder. In cases of ra.pe, you are essentially taking a child's life away in order to make your own life better. It's like killing someone to save your own life. In cases of deformity, abor.tion is no better than Hitler ordering all the deformed and weak to be exterminated. Abor.tion is never right.
@writersblock64 Regarding your pro-choice argument, you are saying no one should have control over what you decide over your body and your health. Okay, then do you believe the government should legalize all drugs and cancel the drinking age? After all, who has the right to tell me I can't drink at age 17? Who can tell me what to do with my body?
@FaeNotMyName, so you think a woman's choice is more important than a child's life? Let me make it clear to you that NOTHING is more important than life.
I'm pro-choice. I believe that if a woman gets ra.pe.d, she should not be forced to undergo pregnancy, take care of a child, and ultimately, give up any dreams she has for her future. There is a time, during which most abortions happen, when the embryo has not developed a brain. When the embryo gets aborted at this stage it isn't even human yet. I don't think that a woman should have to suffer for an embryo that isn't even human.
My friend and neighboor was ra.pe.d. She had to go through emotional trauma, worrying about STDs, but thank goodness not pregnancy. Thanks to abortion.
