Human Suffering

anonymous:

Sometimes a woman doesn’t want a child because she doesn’t believe she is ready for one. If the law forces her to keep the child, she & the child will both be miserable because she will either be unable to care for it emotionally or financially. a woman who has an abortion towards the late second or third trimester most likely wanted her baby but found out the circumstances would be dangerous for her & her child and the humane thing to do would be to abort. God forbid you end up in their shoes.

I will never be able to wrap my mind around the argument that one person’s suffering warrants the killing of another human being.

Ask yourself why this reasoning should not apply to a neonatal baby that is one day old. When this very same child was on the other side of the cervix, they were free to be killed if their mother felt emotional or mental distress and sought their destruction under ‘health of the mother’ [Doe v. Bolton, 1973]. What magically changed about this child?

If you have read my blog, you already know that I fully support a pregnant mother’s access to healthcare when her life is in grave physical danger. But this is not elective abortion and is incredibly rare given today’s medical technology.

It’s interesting that you are so focused on the right of women to kill their prenatal children that you never mentioned the beautiful win-win solution commonly known as adoption.

Our culture of death is why most women’s minds immediately jump to the ‘final solution’ at the very moment a pregnancy presents an inconvenience to their personal lifestyle. It will take all of us to change this culture of selfishness and depravity.
