So, I’ve taken the day off of work today. I really didn’t want to. I went in yesterday with this stinking cold. Found it really hard to work whilst ill. I’ve developed a cough which has kept me up all bloody night. It won’t go away, either. Stuff working like this.
Anywho. I want to touch quickly on the abortion issue. Not so much on the issue itself, though I probably will come to that on another day, but for today, I want to think about WHY alot of people (Mainly theists) want to get it banned.
Okay, so maybe you guys consider it murder, but that doesn’t mean it actually is. The big question is though; What do you hope to accomplish by making abortion illegal?
People will still do it. Alot of people can’t afford to raise a child, and the foster system is overflowing as it is. Sometimes, abortion is the more humane way to go. Now, if you ban it, make it illegal, then people will just do it themselves, with coathangers. They’ll go to dodgy back-alley abortionists. This will lead to a higher death-toll, for the would-be mothers.
It’s a shame that abortions have to happen, but they do, and they always will, regardless of the legality of it. Isn’t it better to have it done in a safe, sterile environment, with proper facilities and aftercare? Rather than have people dying just because these people are too shortsighted to see beyond their own noses.
Funny how they care more about a foetus than about an actual living person.
