Yes, I’m about to start some crap. You see I am sick and tired of people ranting about abortion being murder. I think they should either step up or shut up.
First let me make it perfectly clear, I don’t believe in abortion as birth control. However I also understand that people make mistakes. Some are minor and some are life altering. Once can be a mistake, but multiple abortions is birth control.
I would never have an abortion or think about having an abortion but that is my view on the matter. But I would still much rather abortion be available by those medically trained to do so rather than some back alley butcher with a wire clothes hanger. I’d much rather see woman be able to have it done in a safe medical environment with emergency treatment at hand than to stumble home and die of internal hemorrhage or infection. I would much rather a teenage girl not risk such damage to her reproductive system as to destroy her ability to have children in the future.
*Refer to this publication from the World Health Organization to see how unsafe abortion affects women around the world.*
But I still think the majority of anti-abortionists need to mind their own business. You see my problem with the windbags is that most of them are exactly that, windbags. They are full of hot air and nothing else. If they are so concerned with the unborn, step up and take on the responsibility for the unborn. You heard me right.
If you don’t want women having abortions then you adopt those unborn children, you pay the expenses, you raise it. There are very few who will do that. They have no idea what that woman has thought about in coming to the decision that she has. The woman may already know she cannot provide for the child and makes her decision to get an abortion rather than bring a child into the world to starve. She may have made that decision because she is not prepared to be a loving mother to that child and comes to the decision to abort rather than give birth to a child she already knows that she will neglect.
And the anti-abortionists simply march around waving their signs and do nothing but spew hot air. So even though I may not agree with abortion, I’m not going to run around protesting it. The simple fact is, unless I’m willing to step up and take on the responsibility I want to force on someone else, it is none of my business. Otherwise I’m all mouth willing to make a bad situation worse to get my way, instead of taking action to guarantee the situation improves.
