at one time one of my neighbors who lived in the same apartment building as me told me a story...I have no reason to disbelieve her. she was mentally
ill, but really emotionally distraught over this.
she had to take the medicine she was taking to keep her mental capabilities intact, unforunately, that medicine wasn't that friendly to developing
babies. so much so, that when here doctors found out that she was pregnant, they immediately went to a courthouse and got an order to give the girl
an abortion. they forced this girl to abort her baby, because they knew it would be born very badly deformed!
okay, so those of you who think that all abortions should be outlawed, umm....
what would your solution be??
for the girl to stop taking the meds, let her go completely insane, for the sake of the child??
or let the child develope, exposed to the chemicals that were causing it's body to develope malformed (that in itself sounds a little painful!!), and
well, you have no problem sharing a little of your paycheck to raise this deformed baby into and beyond adulthood, pay for it's medical care,
to absolutely ban all abortions after 20 weeks, or whatever, well.....you better be prepared to chose one of the two options I listed above! are you
prepared to allow the death of a mother, on the chance that the baby can be born alive? are you prepared to share you income with that baby so that
it can be cared for?
the abortion issue is just too complex, there is no easy law that you can pass that will regulate it justly....
and, well, try convincing some of the anti-abortion group that a developing fetus is a danger to the mother. they'll try every argument they can
think of to convince you that yes, it is possible for both to be fine!! even it they are talking about a very young rape victim who is carrying twins
and there's a group of doctors saying that it is very, very, unlikely!!
which leads me to this statement!!
motherhood, bringing babies into our world, is treated with the honor that it should be treated with to begin with. no one appreciates the sacrifices
that mothers make during pregnancy or the 20 or so years afterwards that she spends nurturing that young person to adulthood. there's no monetary
compensation, and well, if that mother happens to find herself in need of help from welfare, she's treated like the lowest of low!!
motherhood, housekeeping all that, well, it isn't considered work, oh no....why isn't this person out working!!!
well.....why have kids in such an environment??
