Killing a human being isn’t health care. Health care – wait for it – cares for the health of the patient. Killing a patient doesn’t care for their health.
The patient is the pregnant person, not the fetus- Oh wait – obviously this isn’t really about the healthcare of the pregnant person, how caring of me.
That’s why you’d rather end abortion than make pregnancy afforable and managable. It’s never about the pregnant person is it?
Killing the fetus in and of itself does not help the pregnant woman. If anything, she’s put at unnecessary risk for things like hemorrhage and uterus perforation.
Like I’ve said a million times, there’s a difference between a treatment for the mother having the side effect of putting the fetus at risk and directly killing the fetus.
I’m all for health care for women and children. For all people, actually. I’m just not for killing people. That really shouldn’t be so controversial.
Oh, I’m sorry, I’ll just tell my mother her abortion did not in any way save her life from an ectopic pregnancy, apparently her life is an “unnecessary risk.” Okay.
I guess she didn’t benefit by being able to have my brother later.
I guess I didn’t benefit from my own abortion, which kept me from health complications and save me from poverty.
I guess it doesn’t help those who don’t identify as women, but can get pregnant.
I guess pregnant people’s lives are unnecessary risks that must be avoided.
There is no difference. How is it, that “directly killing” a fetus is different from using medicine that has side effects to terminate one?
Why is it that suddenly, pregnant people don’t matter? Or that only “certain pregnant people matter?”
You say you’re not for killing of people, but I guess people who die because of the lack of access to abortion doesn’t matter. You’re not “directly killing” and it’s just a side effect.
Was your mother’s pregnancy tubal? In tubal pregnancies there is no way to save the baby, but you don’t have to kill him or her directly. You do sometimes have to remove the baby and then that baby will die. That’s not an abortion.
In non-tubal ectopic pregnancies, it is possible to save both the child and the mother, and every effort should be made to do so.
I am sorry you felt an abortion was necessary for you. I am sorry your child didn’t have the chance to be born and grow up either with you or with a loving adoptive family. I’m sorry no one offered you the support you needed.
Your abortion killed your child. There’s no getting around that. If you’re struggling in any way with that decision or your feelings since then, I encourage you to visit abortionchangesyou.com. It’s not preachy (it’s actually a secular website) and it allows you to work through your feelings at your own pace.
There is a difference between direct and indirect killing. A doctor can’t save every patient, and in triage situations doctors have to prioritize patients not based on their value as people, but on the doctor’s ability to save them. The doctor wants to save as many people as possible, and may sometimes have to let someone die in order to save others. That doctor didn’t go and shoot the dying person in the head, but instead allowed them to die in order to save other lives.
Shooting someone in the head isn’t health care. Doing your best to save a life, even if you fail and they die, is health care.
Abortion directly kills a person and doesn’t treat a condition. It treats the fetus as a sub-human, a non-person, rather than treating them like the human being they are.
Thank you @prolifeproliberty, I couldn’t have said it better myself. If everyone could see through the fog of their own selfishness as clearly as you do, abortion would not only be illegal, it would be unthinkable.
