do you think it’s ok to openly disregard the stress and suffering of being pregnant for nine months, then going through the excruciatingly painful and, to this day, still dangerous act of giving birth all for an unwanted child who will grow up without parents and was technically never meant to be born in the first place? also how can you say that any life is better than no life? have you ever been suicidal? can you say it’s ok to leave someone suffering instead of putting them out of their misery
I have known suffering and the burden of being in a place and time that required great sacrifice and the selfless giving of my own life for the benefit of others.
And in case you weren’t aware, giving birth is a relatively painless process if you opt for an epidural. Even if you require a cesarean section, anesthesia is administered for the actual procedure. Yes, there is a recovery period. But is the pain associated with this procedure a reason to kill another human being? Think about this for a moment. Is taking the life of your own son or daughter worth avoiding temporary pain and discomfort? Is depriving a member of your own family of a lifetime of experiences worth avoiding a few weeks of pain? Are you so incapable of making a sacrifice for someone else?
Selflessness and sacrifice are two of the most noble human values we posses. These traits are why soldiers are awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor and civilians are awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. When is the last time a woman aborting her child received such recognition? It will never happen because abortion is an act of pure selfishness.
Killing a prenatal child because you think they may someday be suicidal is an inexcusable rationalization for ending their life. Each human being should have the opportunity to chart their own course. We cannot know what fruit a human being will bear. Depriving them of their life is immoral and unjust.
