Another thing, I wanted to mention. The whole argument of "well, lets let all those against abortion adopt the babies "made" to be born"
Thats not an answer. It certainly isn't a solution. Its an immature defense statement...much like my 10 year old..."well, if I didn't do it the way
you want me to, you do it then!"
I'm reminded of children, who maybe didn't clean their rooms quite right so mommy and daddy stepped in to take care of it for them. Move onto more
responsible things like money, bills, life and these are the same people who go and place a 50 dollar meal on a credit card, but only made 25 extra
dollars to spend that week. I made a mess....i'm to spoiled to clean it up myself, therefore I can either push my toys under the bed, or I want
someone else to clean it up for me. Its the same line of thinking. I wanted something "now" I ended up in a mess, so now..I want to get rid of the
mess...or hey..since thats not the "moral" option, someone should take care of it for me. When you really break it down..its an extremely barbaric
And the whole "its only an issue when the child is unborn, but forgotten about once its born into an unwanted family". Whose to say so? Whose to say
that those who are against abortion stop caring once the baby is born? No one has ever said that. Does it mean they go right out and adopt them up?
No. I care about people abusing their credit cards and putting themselves in debt...doesn't mean I'm gonna go make their credit card payments for
them. What do we do instead? well, for one, no one below 18 is allowed to have a credit card....think about that....there is an age limit for credit
cards...there is an age limit for driving, there is an age limit for working...in fact, there is not one are of life we have that an age limit is not
involved somehow..except one. Sex. We prepare our children, our future generations more for economics, college, and the work force than we do
preparing them for Life. Real life. Day to day real life.....responsibility. Why is that? I think about myself...16, boyfriend. When I kissed him..I
wanted to have sex. Its a normal bodily function, couple with hormones raging in a normal 16 year old body and we have the makings of several problems
that run across our countries. But what has changed? surely hormones didn't just all of a sudden appear? surely back in the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s,
hormones were active...right? They surely didn't just all of a sudden develop in the 70s, 80s, 90s..now? Yet, while unwanted pregnancies are down, in
comparison to yesteryear, they are still..UP. How could that be? what has changed?
Some will say its the introduction of "sex ed" others will say there is not enough of it. My question...when did sex ed begin? and how does it fair in
comparison to the rise in unwanted pregnancies?
Some will say tv...theres to much "soft porn" for our children to be exposed to. My question....when did we become more uninhibited on tv and how does
it fair in comparison to the rise in unwanted pregnancies.
But an even more, much more with the times question. Technology. I want new shoes? but I have no cash? hey..no problem, I'll just pick up this nice
shiny card and wala, new shoes. Next month, I don't have the money to pay for it? ah, no problem, I'll move that payment to the back of my other
payments. I have to see that episode I missed of yada yada ..no problem, I'll just open up the screen on my laptop (that I bought with shiny plastic
card) where it automatically lights up and brings my facebook right to me, type into said tv channel and there I go..instant tv show that I
missed...or of course, there is netflix, tivo, dvr. Now, I want to get a hold of my grandmother and find out if she is coming this summer, I need to
know "right now" but I'm in my car....I can do one of a myriad of things....call her from my cellphone...that I bought with shiny plastic card (and
still haven't paid off yet) , I can text her (as long as no police cars are around) or..I can email her! and she'll respond back...literally
within...seconds! I'm hungry and I want a burger, but I don't have alot of time, no problem..I'll go to this box, talk to an unseen person, order
exactly what I want, pay for it with my shiny card, and off I go...if there are 5 cars, well,...thats just to long of a wait...I'll go to the next
drive through place.
Catching my drift here? The facts are facts. Human being have become...spoiled, selfish, shallow, "we want it now" syndrome in full effect..and when
we mess up? well....its the governments fault, they should not have allowed me to buy a house I knew I could not afford. Its my credit cards company
fault, they should not have allowed me to have that limit. Its x and x restaurants fault, they should not have such high fat foods. But, when an
unwanted baby is formed? Think about it.." I had sex last night, and we didn't use protection, because we were to caught up in the moment..and my body
made a mistake, it shouldn't have done that."
