I was watching an episode of Law and Order where they discuss abortion. The guy on trial says abortion is disobeying God. There are people that oppose with abortion simply on their own moral grounds. It’s a touchy subject, but it’s a subject that is important to talk about – it’s important to talk about because it’s important to keep it legal.
Firstly, not everyone believes in God. Religion cannot be the example for which you base your protest on. Not everyone is religious, let alone believes in the same God. You cannot shove religion down someone’s throat nor change a law because not everyone is religious. The bible is outdated. You say God opposes murder, but no where does it say “abortion is wrong”. There is speak of a womb, and creating the child in the womb, but no where does it say those exact words.
Another argument is that the cure to cancer could have been in that child – that cluster of cells could have become something great. I believe in God, I also believe – as He has told us – that we will be placed in this earth for a purpose. If we are needed to find a cure, God will find a way to make it happen. We are souls, and we can become in any one person. The soul is the one to cure cancer, the soul is the one you fight for – and God will bring that soul to earth no matter what.
You only care about the fetus when you want. Once the child has been born, you couldn’t care less. You are not pro-life. You are pro-taking-away-women’s-control. If you were as pro life as you claim, why don’t I see you on the streets protesting another black life lost to the police? Why don’t I see you protesting for the entrance of refugee’s into the country? If you truly cared about life, you would care about every life. “Oh well the child can just be adopted out” – tell that to the hundreds and thousands and possibly millions of children awaiting a home. It’s just not your decision to make. If you chose not to have an abortion, what gives you the right to take away my choice? No one is ever “pro-abortion” – you want an abortion like you want a root canal. It’s a “have to” and a decision made for the life of that potential child too. Everyone is allowed to make their own decisions, but why can you make a choice about not having an abortion and then someone else’s choice to have one is denied? What makes you so special?
I believe in the choice to safe and legal procedures. Children deserve to live in homes that will love them and make them feel wanted. I want women to be able to choose to have an abortion like you can choose not too. I want choice. Not control.
