Proud parent of an "aborted fetus"Submitted by Johnny 5 on Sat, 01/26/2013 - 16:50
There's a bumber sticker you will probably never see.
I believe abortion is probably the most touchy/difficult social issue out there. It is an issue that I personaly have had a hard time finding my stance on, but here it is.
I'm an atheist so I don't view this subject through the lense of "christian morality". For mostof my life I stood more on the side of "pro choice", but now after alot of thought,I as an individual am "pro life", because I've concluded that what this subject ultimately boils down to is personal responsibility. If you enjoy a sexually active lifestyle that's fine, that's your "choice". I think the responsible thing to do is to take the preventative measures of using some form of contraceptive. Now we all know contraceptives don't work 100% of the time, but you were aware of that and you were willing to take that risk,and it's time to own up. Your "choice" ultimately begins at being sexually active, so it seems very pompous to me when a women claims it's her right to choose. In the case of rape that's where you get sympathy from me, there is such things as the day after pill, but in the event of that failing, then I would say it's your right to choose an abortion.
even though I'm against abortion, I realize that the divide on this issue is so tremendous that I don't think it will be a good Idea to outlaw it. Like almost everything else that is prohibited,and illegal there will be a Black Market that arises, or just simply more events of post birth baby disposal. I think there is a good possibility that outlawing it will create much more herendous activity than the abortions themselves. Idk maybe I'm wrong, if any one would like to add or feel there's a flaw in my thoughts I would appreciate any thoughts that may differ.
