Abortion is one of the most controversial issues in America today. There are approximately 1.5 million abortions every year in this country. It was legal in the 1970s. However, pro-life activists argue that it is no different than murder. Should the government have the right to take away a women's right to make decisions regarding her own body?
The main issue that pro-life people have with abortion is that they believe it causes an unborn child to suffer. However, many children who's mothers want to have an abortion have a reasonable cause and the child is better off being aborted. Most unwanted children are abused and neglected. Some are born addicted to drugs. Why should we make innocent, young children suffer with being beaten, born addicted to crack, and being raped when these women could simply have an abortion? What is so hypocritical about people who are pro-life is they are the ones who are against welfare: they just want these kids to have life, they don't care if they starve to dealth after they are born! Also, the pro-life kids are the ones who shun other children who are from low-income families. Instead of worrying about abortion, it is critical that we worry about children already alive who are being tortured by abusive parents and who are living in poverty. Would anyone want to be born addicted to crack and have withdrawal symtoms and be neglected? Wouldn't it be better to just go back to Heaven with GOD, who takes better care of them.
Another issue is world population. Currently, it is over 6 billion. The world is running out of resources. We need to take care of those who are alive already instead of bringing more people into the world who we cannot take care of.
Women's rights are guaranteed by the Constitution. It is none of anyone else's business to decide what a women faced with an unwanted pregnancy should do. The Bible does NOT condemn abortion, it is perfectly Christian to be pro-choice. No one...
