Stance on abortion

Just to clarify (see my last text post), I am completely pro-life.  I only think abortion is excusable if and only if carrying the child to full term would certainly kill the mother, and it’s sad still then.  

When people find out that I’m pro-life (not like it’s something I hide), they’re always telling me that some people can’t afford to have a child, what if it’s rape, and some people have other plans, and some people don’t want to go through the pain of childbirth, et cetera, et cetera, what if, excuse, blah blah.  

First of all, to all of you who think that women should be able to get abortions if they can’t afford a child, not only is there financial help out there for low-income families with children, but there is also the option of adoption, which is definitely better than killing your unborn baby.  If it’s rape, that’s rough and I understand that it would be emotionally painful to carry the child of a forced sexual relationship, but there is still no reason for abortion.  That will, if anything make feelings worse from the guilt of ending a life.  Even if the rapist is guilty, the baby is still an innocent little life.  In this case, one can either choose to put the baby up for adoption, or keep it and care for it.  The baby isn’t guilty, the rapist is.  

I also understand that women may have plans, like college or a dream career, but killing to pursue your interests is just plain selfish.  First off, if you have a future in mind that doesn’t include a baby, abstain from sexual intercourse.  It’s the only way to be sure that a pregnancy will not ensue from your relationship.  Relationships in this culture are over-sexualized, but in reality sex doesn’t make anything “official” and it doesn’t mean that it’s true love.  True love is somebody who is willing to wait and be with you even if they know that you aren’t interested in sex.  Second, again, there is adoption.  A relative of mine adopted children when she couldn’t have her own and not only do they love her and she them, but she can’t imagine a better life for herself.  She once mentioned how long the wait list for adoption is, and how rigorous the procedure.  If you don’t want a baby, a loving person will be more than glad to adopt him or her.  You don’t have to kill the baby.

I have to admit that I really don’t understand the women who abort because they don’t want the physical woes of pregnancy.  So what if childbirth hurts?  So what if your feet swell or you get stretch marks?  If you’re killing a little unborn baby for your own comfort, you are one shallow person.  Yes, it’s scary, I admit that I’m scared for the distant day when I become a mother, but it’s scarier that people can end lives as casually as they do.  

For all other excuses, think about it this way: abortion isn’t a procedure to get a knee replaced or a tumor removed, it’s the actual murder of a human.  People argue that fetuses can’t feel pain and they aren’t born yet so they won’t be upset, but when it all comes down to it, it is the killing of a child.  

I encourage you to find out more about pro-life views.  These aren’t people who oppress women, these are people who discourage killing.  If the situation presents itself, spread the pro-life view point. Everyone deserves a life, it is guaranteed by America’s constitution.
