UPDATE: How Would We Handle the Unintended Consequences of Banning Abortion?Submitted by Reconstituter001 on Tue, 03/19/2013 - 12:51
I'm done defending facts and asking questions on this thread. Unfortunately, very few facts were given by the "pro-lifers" who want government intervention into people's private lives. It's obvious that people are just too *comfortable* with their own beliefs and are unable or unwilling to think beyond them. This was a very valid question framed in the context of reality, any reasonable person can see that. My last point would be this...not only would Banning Abortion create MORE GOVERNMENT and MORE GOVERNMENT DEPENDENCY it would also INCREASE CRIME. These are the *facts* regardless of how uncomfortable they make you feel.
This thread is not about the morality of abortion, there's another thread for that.
Since Roe v. Wade there have been an estimated 55 million abortions.
If all of those babies were "saved" ...
Who would take care of them if the families couldn't?
Should crack addicts and unfit mothers be forced by the state to give birth?
Basically, in the long run, aren't we just creating more government dependency if we force mothers to have babies that they can't take care of?
