I told them I didn't remember a damn thing about being in the womb and if my mom had aborted me, I wouldn't know a thing about it and hence I wouldn't care. Needless to say that put them into shock. Things went downhill from there.
I doubt you have much memory as a 6 month old either. Lets kill off all the 6 month olds that become a problem, get in the way.
No, by then the brain chemistry that creates the morality that christians take all the credit for is working, and the moms want to protect the kid. I wouldn't want to fool with mother nature.
Abortion is should obviously not be a casual choice, but not all pregnancies come at good times. Whether you're nine and you've been raped by your dad or you're 25 and you just lost your job and lost your insurance and your husband ran off and now you're pregnant and you don't have the sixteen grand to pay the hospital bill, you might have a reason to get an abortion. Of course, if the right, who is so against abortion, would allow us to institute a nationalized medical plan so everyone was insured via their taxes, then there would automatically be fewer abortions because kids would be affordable.
I'm not pro abortion. I'm against telling someone they have to have a child. And don't go giving me the abstinence talk. Sex is fun, and to pretend otherwise is to ignore biology. And shit happens. And not always at good times.
It's like 9/11. When 3,000 people get killed by terrorists (horrible, I agree), we head off to war. A war that kills over 6,000 of our own and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi's and Afgans. Many innocent amongst them. But when we kill 3,000 a month of our own, half via drunk driving, on the highways, we don't run around bombing bars or putting every single person on the highway through a frickin' checkpoint. Americans overreact to certain losses, like terrorist acts or aborted children, and then ignore the poverty of the ghettos, look the other way when children are abused, show no concern about the high dropout rate in schools and otherwise prove that their concern for life is minimal. Except for unborn kids.
When the right figures out how to make the rest of life at least tolerable, then they can start demanding all beings get to live. As long as they are putting more effort into keeping so many people miserable, they haven't got a reason in the world to worry about the unborn as much as they do. Except that it makes them feel moral. Falsely.
