Why do you think it’s wrong for a woman to know that going through with her pregnancy would be harmful for her emotional and/or physical health and well-being? And why do you think it’s wrong for a woman to know that going through with her pregnancy would change her life for the worse? Whether or not you want to admit it, it’s perfectly okay for a woman to not want to be pregnant, and to end her pregnancy. To say otherwise is to be incredibly arrogant and uncompassionate.
The reason some women think of their pregnancy as a burden or contrary to their well being is cultural. We have created a warped culture that does not value the developing human being as an equal to their mother. Women believe that they can kill their children for convenience because as a society we have codified this belief into our culture [Roe v. Wade]. My point is that we must shift this belief, thus shifting our culture, to one where the developing human being’s rights are considered separately from the mother. They should each have equal rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Remember, you once passed through the fetal stage of life, would you not have preferred the protection of the law — the protection of the Constitution of the United States that affirms our right to life?
We, as intelligent human beings, did not design the developmental process that dictates that the female bears children, this is a result of millions of years of evolution. We cannot change this. What we can change is our attitude toward this process. Each of us depended on a female to care for us before and after our birth.
Where is our society’s compassion for those awaiting their turn at birth? What went so wrong that people like you believe that death is a solution to a temporary ‘problem’, to an evolutionary requirement for the mother to carry and deliver us into this amazing and beautiful world we call home?
Even Jane Roe changed her mind and now believes that abortion represents the wholesale slaughter of prenatal children. If her heart could change, so can yours.
