Why is it that the very people who preach on ad nauseum about being "pro life" are the same ones who rabidly support the death penalty, and having
our military go in and kill innocent people in other countries that are not Christian?
The hypocrisy astounds me.
It is SO EASY to get all worked up about the life of a fetus, isn't it? YOU don't have to take care of it, YOU don't have to pay for it or raise
it, so it is an easy way to feel superior and closer to the spirit you imagine is God by crying on and on about imaginary fetuses and their
I personally want to see every person who wants to see abortion illegal spend their time on making the lives of these unwanted children better. You
care so much about life in the womb, spew a lot of hot air about the sanctity of life, and then forget about them once they're born. Yeah, you'll
show up on a message board and cry over a case like Casey Anthony, or one of the many other mothers who end up killing their unwanted children, but
what have you done to make it better for these women economically and emotionally so they don't feel driven to off their offspring?
Long ago I had a temporary job at a mortuary, pulling out old files for mormons to put on microfiche for their genealogy project. This mortuary had
been around since the 1890s. I noticed that there were a great deal of young women who died of blood poisoning from botched and self-induced
abortions, notably around the time of wars. I guess their boyfriends came home on leave and left a little of themselves behind when they shipped back
Roe V. Wade was put into law to stop the back-alley and self-induced abortions that were rampant in American society at that time and were killing
record numbers of young women with hideous, painful blood infections. It was done to save lives, believe it or not, because women were going to try
and terminate the pregnancy whether it was legal or not.
Even in the ancient days, if women couldn't terminate the pregnancy with herbs and falls on their stomachs, they would birth the child and then toss
them in the river.
BOTTOM LINE: If you don't believe in abortion, then don't get one. Whatever somebody does is between themselves and God. YOU are not qualified to
be the judge. If you want to put your money where your mouth is, start adopting babies and taking in teen mothers to help them. Otherwise, your
words are just so much pious, pompous hot air.
