Living Without Guilt

This question references this post.

Thank you for the reply, but I’m still seeing you tell me about anti abortion. I’m not questioning the value of life with this particular instance. I’m asking you how it’s a good idea for my niece to carry this child to term. Regardless of any ifs, we’re not in charge of her decision. I am not, you are not. I want to know your ideas on the benefits of her going through the pregnancy, the body changes, the ripping of her vagina, or the c-section. Considering the details of my last question.

It takes nine months to gestate a child. I know it’s not an easy nine months and I know there are permanent changes to the mother’s body. Whether it be stretch marks, scarring from a C-section, or the need for an episiotomy, these things should not make a mother feel ashamed. They are a part of the amazing and beautiful process of reproduction.

The benefits of her carrying her living son or daughter to term is that she will not have the guilt and regret associated with killing her child. Whether she were to keep her child or place him or her for adoption, she will live guilt free. She will live knowing she provided life to another, not live knowing she killed another.

The value of a human being should never be decided by the manner of their conception. We all have a right to life, even while awaiting our birth. We must embrace this concept and make the dignity of human life the foundation of our shared values and culture.
