abortion is too often used to avoid the consequences of ones actions,once conception takes place there is nothing that should be done,if this were the
course of action which people were forced to deal with,a lot of moral and societal issues would be solved as well.
The only exceptions should be:
-gross deformity(unviable fetus).
-death to the mother if carried full term.
The choice between these three should still be the mother's choice.
Yeah,I hear it already,
"well ,what if the mother is poor?"(wrong!)
"well,what if the mother is a minority?"(descrimination!)
"well,my body my choice"(keep your legs closed)
I don't care if you think this is something that you think you have a right to decide.
It is ALL about morals and responsibility,and too many people give these two things very little thought!.
And besides that,the fetal material is worth a whole bunch of cash and used for all kinds of purposes which the medical establishment charges the
patients for,the mother is generally not compensated.
So on one hand we have people answering to the consequences of their actions,a good thing.
On the other hand we deprive a basically illegal money making scam from happening like the moneymen like.
We allow people to live,that even though there are those on this board who would say they are "worthless"," poor"," whatever",who knows what
these people who never were would have been?,who is in a position to decide who dies?,who gives life?,they have no business judging anyone that way
a lot of people should look in the mirror and really try to figure out where they fit into the big pic,I am sure they would be disappointed if they
were truthful with themselves.
Everyone has the right to have children,regardless of how "worthless",you think they may be.
I used to think differently when I was younger,I know a few people who would not exist except for the mothers desire to have the kid,good people.
