Ok, I personally don't believe in abortion. I would never get one. And as I sit here, one day overdue (due aug 17th) I could never imagine killing a little life inside of me.
However, can we tell other women what to do? Why do women get abortions? I suppose if they were all financially stable and ready, they would keep them? Do we force women to have their babies, but not be there to help them afterwards? Of course the ideal thing is don't get pregnant until you are ready. (That's what hubby and I did, and truly its not too hard to do, its called birth control) But birth control fails, women have said.
I kind of feel like its a damned if you do, damned if you don't.
I know people have said at the very least have the baby and put it up for adoption. Actually we have laws in our state (maybe he whole country?) that you can leave your baby at a police dept or hospital with no consequences. I fully agree with that. This way the baby is safe, instead of with someone who doesn't want it.
What if we force women to keep their babies, but they try to eliminate it themselves though drug use, smoking, or alcohol? As of now abortion is an option and we still have women that choose to keep the baby and still abuse their bodies and inturn give birth to fetal alcohol syndrome babies and babies addicted to drugs. Think of all the ones that choose to abort, then they would have to keep there babies?
I just don't know. I'd love to say no one can have an abortion, but then you risk bringing children into a world where they are not wanted or able to be cared for. What do we do as a society??
