How Religion has Failed the FetusSubmitted by OctoBox on Wed, 06/27/2012 - 18:22
Pro-Choice v Pro-Life
---Education: Sex is natural, never suppress, make conscious choices
---Contraception: use it, disease and unwanted pregnancy prevention
---Options to Abortion: Adoption - Keeping Child
---Abortions: Sanitized and 99% Safe
---Education: Sex is Evil unless married, gays are made not born
---Contraception: is evil, obstain from sex (suppress urges)
---Options to Abortion: Adoption - Keep Child
---Abortions: You will go to Hell
Pro-Choice makes a better first argument; it begins with "choice"
Pro-Life means Forced-Pregnancy with no "real" Assistance from the Christian Community.
Pro-Choice -- 1.2M abortions per year -- averaging over over 1M per year since 1980.
The largest factors to the per capita reduction in abortions comes from the fact that Baby-Boomers moved outside the pregnancy years and Education (public school and entertainment making condem use more popular and available). This is largely the Pro-Choice arena.
Where Religions have failed is plain to see
Every religion (for the most part) is against abortion -- though they might not vote pro-life in all instances, as many Christians do not vote pro-life.
Voting will not end abortion.
Religious people have not effected the nominal number of abortions per year -- the number has been 1M since 1979-80.
There is no value in the fetus from the pro-life camp -- most of these women could be bought-brought to term. These women either pay or get free abortions -- if you offer them $20,000 per child born (limited one child per woman -- limited to 1.2M births per year).
That would be $22B per year.
If the religious are 95% of the working class that would be $125 per person per year. To save 1.2M births per year and give the women or young woman a chance at a college education or atleast pay for a semester or two.
So my question is not why the religious have not saved 100% of these kids, but why haven't they saved 10%.
The 10% cost would be $12.60 per child.
Who's having abortions (religion)?
Women identifying themselves as Protestants obtain 37.4% of all abortions in the U.S.; Catholic women account for 31.3%, Jewish women account for 1.3%, and women with no religious affiliation obtain 23.7% of all abortions. 18% of all abortions are performed on women who identify themselves as "Born-again/Evangelical".
The 23.7% who claim no affiliation are not necessarily "atheistic or agnostic" many people do not claim religion when surveyed (I know I don't).
