I confront mothers who intentionally kill their sons and daughters while living in their womb. Abortion is the ultimate manifestation of human selfishness. It represents the worst of our species and is only found in times of weakness, never strength.
You say abortion is safer than childbirth – but for who? Like others who believe preborn human beings should be killed ‘on demand and without apology’, you have erased the value of their lives. This dehumanization has served as a prerequisite for countless crimes against humanity throughout the ages, including genocide, ethnic cleansing, apartheid, and slavery. Strip an unborn human being of their ‘personhood’ and you have laid the groundwork for their slaughter.
The time we spent living within our mother’s womb was just as important as the time we currently spend living outside of her womb (actually, it was more important). We never morphed into the human being we are today – we have always been that human being from the moment we came into being.
Finally, you are absolutely correct in your assertion that kids aren’t right for everyone and the desire to avoid reproduction shouldn’t unreasonably inhibit one’s sex life. That’s why there are a myriad of non-abortifacient birth control options, full sterilization, and adoption. In other words, take the proper precautions and when those fail, place your ‘unwanted’ child for adoption. The choice to poison or dismember your child should not only be illegal, it should be unthinkable – no matter the circumstances of their conception.
