Now I'm not saying abortion is something to be taken lightly. That's a baby in there. But when that baby's in the first trimester, I can assure you it looks nothing like a human being, and to call killing this blob of flesh an act of murder is just stupid.
Like I said, it's not a good thing to abort. But these people aren't saying "We love babies, and lets give some child support to this teenage mom to help the baby have a better life." They're saying "She committed the evil act of having sex before marriage, so fuck her and fuck her future. Pro-Blob!"
Oh, and they're not just saying that. The only reason they want to stop abortion is not because they love life - these are the same people who were pro-war in Iraq, you know. They're against giving out free contraception to prevent pregnancy, and against sex education in schools.
They only want to ban abortion because they're petty enough to believe:
1: God hates murder and killing the blob is killing life. This ain't about the girl or the baby. This is about God.
2: That if teenage girls never had sex, there would never be unwanted babies.
3: That giving out free contraception will only result in more teenage sex.
4: That teaching kids about sex in schools will also result in more teenage sex.
I assure you, that the most fanatical 'Pro-Life' people really do believe this. This is not a dig at anybody who is not stupid enough to believe this though, even if they are pro-life.
As for people who believe in adoption, well, giving up that baby is often a lot harder after nine months of carrying it around, giving birth and looking at it briefly before having it snatched away. That baby ain't gonna be too happy when they grow up and find out their parent isn't their parent and their real parent gave them up.
Sure, that is a life, and it could be anything or anybody. But if you ban abortion, it'll still go on. But it'll go on in dirty, horrible backstreet surgeries with unqualified doctors, places prone to infection and Dr. Nick type doctors. And they'll charge thousands because they're doing something illiegal that's in high demand.
Far better that it remains legal, regulated, and a decent price. And if you don't want abortion to go on, close your eyes the way you close your eyes to all the other problems in the world - like AIDS in Africa, the homeless, and the people who can't afford medical care.
