Abortion used as birth control

The fact is that it's not the women or children who are raped or molested that are having the bigger share of abortions, but the majority are career women who are single and use abortion as a form of birth control. Not only is that apalling, it's inexcusable.
I've known several such women through my life. One particular girl I knew in high school. She slept with anyone she pleased never bothering to use protection. I think the last I heard, she had had 5 abortions. An ex-sister-in-law of mine had so many abortions, the last one they refused to do. My best friend came to me about 10 years ago, complaining she was pregnant. He she told me, "I'll just get an abortion." As if it was like having dental work or liposuction done. She was 30 years old at the time. 30 and single, but sleeping with her boyfriend, using no birth control whatsoever. I suspect that she had had previous abortions, I'm most certain of it actually. But I wasn't about to let her do this without a fight from me. I sat her down and talked through the night onto the morning of the next day. She was afraid what her mother would think. Thank God I talked sense into her. But I didn't leave it at that. I followed up making sure she got into the system for health care. No, she's not a welfare lifer, just used it liked it's suppose to be used for that brief period of time. I'm happy to say that she has a beautiful nine year old daughter that is the love of her life.
I don't think anyone has a right to tell anyone that they have to do something that could possibly kill them. That is the only way I would accept a woman having an abortion, if her life was threatened by the pregnancy. That's between her and her Maker. Yes pregnancy can be a life altering event, so what? It's very rare that women die from giving birth these days. I just wish women would stop using it as a form of birth control, while all the other women defend their right to do so.
I'm sick of hearing it's not a baby too. Let's not even consider the whole embryo thing. What about the abortions performed when a woman is 6 months along? You think that's not a baby? I've heard of babies being born earlier and surving. I've heard of doctor's having to kill that aborted baby after the abortion. Try telling a woman who's had a miscarriage that she lost a blob of cells rather than a baby. I've had a miscarriage, no one will convince me it's not a baby.
How many of you that are pro abortion would be appalled at someone destroying unborn puppies? I bet there are many who value animals more than they do human life.
No, the ones who want abortion legal want to keep it that way, not because they care about women, not at all. It's so they can rationalize that it's okay for them to do it if the times comes for them. They want it available, just in case.
Use birth control. And if it fails be prepared, because it does happen. Can't stand that chance? Then don't have sex for crying out loud. Or, have your tubes cut and tied if you don't want to have a child. Why make the innocents suffer for your mistakes? Been raped, get to the hospital where they can keep you from becoming pregnant. Just behave responsibly, that's all it takes.
