The Quickening Effect

anonymous:

I was pro choice for a long time but I was naive. I had never been pregnant. I quickly changed my mind when I became pregnant & saw the little one moving around inside me at 11 weeks & saw the heart beat. I am currently 20 weeks & get to find out the sex this Wednesday. I only agree with abortion when it is necessary, causing harm to mother or child. If you don’t want a kid then don’t have sex or use some kind of protection. End of story.

Experiencing life growing within certainly helps some to come to terms with the reality that abortion kills living human beings. Sadly, that’s just not enough for many people who are so self-absorbed that they cannot conceive of the idea that a mother should subjugate her desires to the life of her own child.

I do want to clarify one point. Abortion is never necessary to save the life of the mother, and certainly never helps the child…

DUBLIN DECLARATION ON MATERNAL HEALTHCARE

As experienced practitioners and researchers in obstetrics and gynecology, we affirm that direct abortion – the purposeful destruction of the unborn child – is not medically necessary to save the life of a woman.

We uphold that there is a fundamental difference between abortion, and necessary medical treatments that are carried out to save the life of the mother, even if such treatment results in the loss of life of her unborn child.

We confirm that the prohibition of abortion does not affect, in any way, the availability of optimal care to pregnant women.

This declaration was signed by over 1,000 OB/GYNs and other medical professionals. If you don’t trust my opinion, you should certainly trust theirs.
