I am anti-abortion, even in cases of rape and incest and deformed babies. I'm only "for" them--and that's a big vague for, is when the life of
the mother and baby is severely at risk, and the child is younger than the "age of viability". And I'm not talking about being a diabetic and
having 12 pound babies, here.
But it doesn't mean that I have to have a lack of compassion in my stance. Not everyone finds themselves in the mental state it takes to handle
difficulties in life. Especially the first time something goes wrong. Most people are not taught to calculate risks and consequences. That;s
generally the fault of the previous generation--although a kid can ignore wisdom all on their own.
I do not have compassion for the decisions of folks who refuse to grow up, as some, not all, who choose abort for convenience sake, do.
I'm sorry, you want to do adult things, then take on adult responsibilities and live up to them. Practice what it takes to be an adult, not the
rights of adulthood. You know the type: they complain about all the things that go wrong in their life, and yet can't tell you what part they played
to get into that situation in the first place. Take for instance, "the Grass is Greener" folks: you man hop (or woman hop), thinking this guys
going to provide for you better than the last, and because you're so "in love". All you wind up feeding is the emotional high you get from a new
love, where your mind blocks out all the negative aspects of the new person in your life. At this point, you're asking for it. When, not if, it
falls apart, you want the world to give you a crying shoulder because it was such a bitter experience? Excuse me, I'm sorry for your grief, no one
wants you to be hurt, but the pain is there to remind you that your choices in life led you to this moment. Own up to it, and you might have a chance
of not repeating the same problem over and over again. Don't and watch some friends walk away over time--there's only so much they can take of the
same obvious mistake over and over. (This is without the aspect of "What if the new guy beats women?" NOBODY deserves to be beaten down. This does
not take away from what you do to put yourself in position to be beaten. Two separate things, really.)
When this type aborts (most of this type tend to keep their kids, that I can remember--it's a way to hold on to the "Grass is Greener Past"),
they're generally aborting for the wrong reasons altogether. Remember, they're not admitting to what they did that caused the situation, so
aborting the kid is another part of not taking responsibility for their actions. While it could be arguable that the abortion is better for the
kid's sake, in this case, it's not better for the mom. (Any more than it is better for her to man-hop when she's got kids in tow.)
There's about 12 different scenarios where I plain want to throttle the aborting adult for being childish. There is little to no rational behavior
in their decision, and because of that, I've got to remember that it's far more easy to get people to see the error of their reasoning with
compassion than there is with whacking them over the head with a frozen halibut.
