This question references this post.
Your mother might have managed at 16, but has she been to college? Did she go right out of high school? I’m willing to bet that if she went to college it was much later in life or that she had a lot of support from her family. Many women however don’t get that. They never get post secondary educations. They end up in retain their whole lives and retire with nothing. What about their life?
You are missing the point entirely.
We must never place ANYTHING above the life of an innocent human being.
NOT financial status.
NOT educational opportunity.
NOT family situation.
NOT age of the mother.
NOT method of conception.
NOT the transference of guilt from rapist to child.
NOT the ‘bodily autonomy’ of the mother.
NOT the lifestyle of the mother.
NOT the failure of the father to support.
NOT the fear of pregnancy.
NOTHING should EVER be placed above an innocent child’s RIGHT TO LIVE.
You were afforded the opportunity to fully gestate, why won’t you fight to allow those who are following you into this world the same opportunity?
