You expect everyone to be abstinent?
No, we simply expect mothers to protect the lives of the children they conceive when they’re not abstinent.
cultureshiftSometimes “mothers” have to make responsible choices for their “children”. When choices need to be made, we leave it up to adults who have the capacity to make informed decisions, unlike children. Between a pregnant person and a fetus, who is best suited to make a decision? Not to mention, if someone is struggling financially, doesnt have stable work, doesnt have a place to live, isnt mentally healthy, is in an abusive relationship or has other dependents and cannot care for another, abortion may be an appropriate solution. How is it responsible to purposely bring others into situations of poverty, abuse or struggle? That is not protecting them. What you deem protection may not always fit the scenario. What about the protection of already born children in a family, they need to come before a fetus, and if you disagree I’d love to hear you explain why they don’t. Im sitting here waiting with my eyes ready to roll, your turn.
I ABSOLUTELY DISAGREE. I took the liberty to highlight a key component of your ideology – the ‘solution’. Just like the Nazis felt they had discovered the ‘final solution’, so, it seems, have you. You believe that killing certain human beings (a ‘fetus’ is just a stage of life that we all pass through as human beings) is a solution to your perceived ‘problems’. Let me dissect your ‘argument’ one point at a time…
“When choices need to be made, we leave it up to adults who have the capacity to make informed decisions, unlike children.”
You are literally saying that an adult should be able to make the choice to kill a child based on their analysis of the situation they find themselves in because the child is unable to fully assess said situation. I always thought an adult should protect a child, regardless of the situation. Just like on a sinking ship, women and children should go first, and the first among those should always be a pregnant mother – someone who represents both combined into one.
“How is it responsible to purposely bring others into situations of poverty, abuse or struggle?”
A pregnant mother has, unfortunately, three choices: 1) to become a parent to her child, 2) to become a birth mother to her child by placing them for adoption, or 3) to poison or dismember her child. I prefer a world where she only has life-affirming choices – the first two. You see, if a mother feels that her child will experience unacceptable levels of poverty, abuse, or struggle, she should seek to place them in the arms of a loving family. If she feels she can provide for her child’s needs, she should seek to parent them. She should never have the choice to kill her child, no matter the circumstances.
“What about the protection of already born children in a family, they need to come before a fetus…”
Clearly, adoption should be her first choice. There is a waiting list for newborns. Because of this, a birth mother’s expenses are almost always covered, including prenatal care. This is why adoption costs so much.
