yes, and in some states, there are more women being prosecuted for having miscarriages than men who assaulted pregnant women. which, well at least to
me, kind of gives clear evidence as to why laws making death of a fetus murder came into effect to begin with...
and ya know what, it doesn't matter how low the percentage of women who have genuine medical reasons to terminate, they are there. and quite frankly,
if a women has a few young children she is responsible for, the far more responsible thing to do is to terminate and not risk not being there for
those kids. just like, if the family is depending on her income to provide a roof over those kids heads, or food on their table, or meet their
healthcare needs, it is far more the responsible thing to do.
but, then that is just coming from my perspective, another women might have a totally different perspective as to what would be the right course of
action... republicans seem to be the party determined to protect our freedom of religion, our freedom to act on our own conscious... so, why don't
you just let these women determine, according to their own beliefs, their own conscious, and by far a better understanding of the situation they are
in than you, just what the best course of action is?
it's not a baby till it is viable outside of the womb! it doesn't have any responsibilities to the living, and in the beginning of the pregnancy no
one has any expectations of it. in time, throughout the pregnancy, the mother will begin to love that child, will have expectations for that child,
will have hopes and dreams of what that child will be... but most abortions are done in the first trimester, long before any of that occurs.
and that is what being human is all about... being loved, being held responsible and fullfilling those responsibilities, emotional attachments to
those around you... you can't just swipe all those humans in the women's life that have those responsabilities, dependencies, emotional attachments,
hopes, and dreams as secondary and less worthy than the possible life that might result from a pregnancy and expect her to go along with it... maybe
she will, maybe she won't. that should be her choice, and only hers!
