Abortion is murder. No matter how you justify it or try to excuse your standpoint, there’s no getting around the truth of what abortion is. The only thing that arguing against that truth does is serve to justify mothers who tear a potential life out of their bodies.
“MY BODY MY CHOICE!!!”
Well it’s not exactly your body IS IT!?
There is another body involved am I wrong? From my standpoint, there is never a time after conception when it is ok to tear the potential life away from a child. You don’t want to face the truth of what your doing? Maybe you shouldn’t be killing people then.
“BuT jAmEs, WhAt AbOuT rApE vIcTiMs. ShOuLdN’t ThEy Be ExEmPt FrOm MuRdEr BlAmE?” (yes I know that’s not how that point is spoken but I feel like it was important to express how ridiculous it is)
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IT DOESN’T! First of all, it is hardly the child’s fault that happened to you. of course, that’s a horrible thing to have happen, but why should the child be put to death?
“Ok JaMeS, bUt WhAt If tHeY cAn’T sUpPoRt ThE cHiLd. WhAt If A 14 yEaR oLd GeTs PrEgNaNt” (yes, that’s a real argument someone posed at one point to me)
Listen, I can understand not having money and the prospect of not being able to support yourself much less yourself and a child, but there are other options out there. I know the system is a bad place. As a matter of fact, it can be down right cruel, but it gives the child a much better chance than deciding to kill it. There is NEVER a good reason to abort a child. Life starts at conception, not whenever you decide so you can kill your own blood with a clear conscience. People who understand the truth of what abortion is after they have one suffer more than a lot of other people I encounter on the day to day, but maybe I’m just uneducated. Maybe they aren’t plagued every day with their foolish choices. Maybe they aren’t torn apart inside every day like the child they couldn’t be bothered caring for for even as little as nine months. ‘I don’t want to be pregnant’ isn’t a good enough reason to kill.
