I am beginning to love the topic of abortion to be honest. Last year I posted a few articles and got some very strong responses back. Even from some people I considered “friends.” This year I have already posted several articles and I am growing fond of the topic. I lose more followers from writing on this subject than any other (even my articles on woman), but that won’t ever stop me from sharing my views.
I have had good and bad “discussions” about abortion with people on all sides of the fence. Some were even sitting on the fence while speaking to me. If a person says “I don’t think a fetus is a baby so abortion doesn’t bother me” I can accept that. It is the people that try to justify abortion to me or change my “mind” that piss me off. You can have your stance, you can blog about it on your blog, but when a comment comes on this blog with any of the reasons I consider ignorant I will normally respond aggressively back. It is a highly charged topic from both sides. however, telling me that it is a woman’s decision will REALLY piss me off. Since when did the life of a child become anything less than a human decision? When women can reproduce without the need of men, then it can be a personal decision. And guess what? Even then the governing bodies of this world, the same MEN AND WOMEN that rule us all, will still regulate what you do. Because it is called murder when you “get rid of something” you no longer want and it has a beating heart.
I really get tired of the rape, incest, and adolescent pregnancy excuse. That is such a small percentage and I have even stated that in matters of rape or incest I can “accept” that hard decisions are made and have even said I can “accept” that it happens if done before 12 weeks. Does that mean I agree with abortion being done casually and not only in cases of extreme emergency? No, I still don’t, but no one should have to live with a mistake. Be responsible at least in dealing with your irresponsibility and handle your business immediately! Why do I even have an opinion? Because we all get an opinion in this life, as is our right as humans. This is definitely directed to the ignorant comment “males should mind their own reproductive responsibilities.”
When I had my first child we didn’t have a ton of money and technically I was still young. I still wanted to have fun and we endured a couple years of financial struggle as we learned what being a parent was. As an adoptee I just want you all to know that using the excuse “we just didn’t have the money for a child” is wrong. Unless you are living in your car You are a liar and I hope you find sleeping hard at night. You can take these words to heart as well birth mother.
Why is it that we must sit here and argue about why it is “right” to kill a baby? When it is acceptable??? Doesn’t it strike anyone else as extremely crass and morbid? I reposted the yahoo article on fetuses being burned with medical waste for energy and I had several people point out I was ignoring the issue of abortion. The right to a proper burial has been a “big deal” to humans since man understood death… so the uproar over the bodies of aborted fetuses being used to fuel a hospital’s power really isn’t unwarranted. I also find these comments amusing because I don’t believe the commenters cared at all about abortion, they were simply trying to downplay the article for being about a frivolous matter. The joke really is on them, because the people that actually READ my website know I am against abortion. I have written about it far too much for there ever to be an unclear line.
Maybe this article will help.
