so i was watching the news a while back and i saw where a group was protesting abortion. see the anniversary of roe vs. wade was coming up which is the court case that made abortion legal. it seems that abortion rates are the lowest ever since 1974 which i think is awesome. the next thing i know so called "experts" come on saying this actually isn't a good thing because that just means people are continuing on with unwanted pregnancies because they can't afford abortions. it really pisses me off that people consider it ok to play God and stop a beating heart by brutally taking it from it's mother's womb. being a 21year old single mother myself i know it's hard. but how can anyone be so much of a coward that they end a life that they created instead of working their butts off to sustain it and protect it. what are these people going to tell these babies when they are face to face with them in heaven, i'm sorry hunny whatever was going on in my life at the time was more important than giving you a chance to have a life. if you are too inconsiderate and self absorbed to do what you need to do to take care of a baby, give it up for adoption, give him or her a chance to be born. i think if abortion wasn't an option everyone knew that they had, people would be more careful when having sex or obstain from it all together. if ur adult enough to lay down and create a life you need to be adult enough to take responsibility for it. and this crap about it's only a group of cells and it's my body i should be able to do what i want is a cop out. It is a baby from conception! in no way is it right or ok to terminate a pregnancy at any stage, to selectively reduce a multiple pregnancy, or to even end a pregany after tests show the child may have a disability. these tests done at around 12 weeks are not 100% accurate. positive tests could result in a perfectly healthy baby, and often do. a child is not an illness that someone should be able to just get rid of. so in my opinion abortion should be completely illegal, voice your opinion that's the only way things will ever change.
