Abortion

The least worst option

Posted by MikeZ on 2013-02-11 11:16:03

Abortion is not a good thing; the circumstances where it is the best choice are rare. Adoption is by far a better choice.

However, women who get pregnant and decide to get rid of the baby are depressingly common. If they are unable to obtain abortions legally, they will do so illegally, putting their health and possibly their lives in danger. Do we really want a return to the days when women used coat hangers, knitting needles, assorted chemicals, etc on themselves?

If an abortion can be performed in a safe sterile environment, so much the better. If the mother can be persuaded to carry the baby to term and arrange for an adoption, then better still. (Though much better would be not getting pregnant in the first place, of course).

What is needed is education, not legislation.

Agreed! Im Pro-Life, and i didnt really realize how popular/prevalent abortions are in the United States.. (1/5 babies are aborted every year here.)
