My step-niece called her dad on Sat. to say she’s pregnant. She’s 16 today (Sun.). She’s been getting molested and raped by her neighbors. Yes, plural. She is two grades behind already. She lives with her disabled mother who is on gov’t assistance. Not that you or I have a say in the manner, but for the sake of conversation, justify how it’s a good thing for this girl to carry this pregnancy to term. That’s it, not about adoption, not parenting or aborting. But putting her body through that.
What you propose to do is correct one great injustice with another great injustice. If your niece lived in a culture founded on the dignity of human life, abortion would be unthinkable. We wouldn’t even be having this discussion.
Your niece’s human rights were violated and now you want her to kill her prenatal child. You want her to now violate the human rights of her own son or daughter. You want her to transfer the guilt of her assailants to her own child. Her son or daughter is, like her, completely innocent.
One day, people like you will realize that the manner of one’s conception does not determine the value of one’s life.
