Sometimes I think that if you are against abortion you should have to adopt a child. Of course that wouldn't be practical or probably the best solution for many reasons--especially since not everyone should be parents. However, perhaps the reality that not everyone would a good parent, (and some people would be down right dangerous to children) proves my point that abortion is an ugly but necessary right. My greater point though is that a lot people talk a good game about "saving life" and "protecting life" but then not enough people adopt children.
Some "pro-life" people love to think how righteous and moral they are for standing against abortion but too many then they look the other way once the kid is born. It seems that they love the fetus but hate the child. They want the child to be born but don't seem to want to pay to help care for it when it's born a crack addict or with HIV/AIDS. Or if it's born to a poor, single mother. These are the same people who are willing to cut off food stamps, welfare and other benefits for those same women (and children) whom they claimed to "love" while they're pregnant.
They say that life is not ours to take but are also often the same ones who support the death penalty and needless war. In closing, think about this--If we make abortion illegal and women have them anyway but are caught then what should we do to punish them? Since these people claim abortion is murder then obviously if they are to remain consistent in their argument they must conclude that these women should rot in prison for premeditated murder. Are they ready to lock up countless women and young women for such an action? They'd have to be.
You can't just say it's the doctor's fault because the women would clearly be going to see him/her for the expressed purpose of "murdering" a human life. Unfortunately for a lot of Conservatives the world isn't as black and white as their religion and/or political philosophy might lead them to assume. In many ways I wish life was that simple that everything simply came down to "good" or "bad" but that's not reality.
