Apply some common sense
Sunday, June 23, 2019
I am neither pro nor con on the abortion issue. There are things in favor of abortion and things that are against abortion. Both arguments have merit. Those who are against abortion have a strong argument which I can agree with. But, on the other hand, women should have the right to decide what their future should be. Let’s let pro-lifers mind their own business and come to an agreeable solution that both sides can accept.
I call pro-lifers back-alley or coat hanger abortionists because that is in effect what they are causing. Instead of going to a hospital for an abortion in a clean sterile environment, they are forcing women to go into an illegal unsafe situation. They are in effect what I call “coat hanger abortionists.”
Also, once the baby is born, these so called do-gooders wash their hands of any further responsibility and say “We got you into this world kid, now you’re on your own. Good luck, little one.” Note childhood hunger.
Why lay all the blame on the mother when there are obviously two people involved in the pregnancy? If they want the pregnancy to go full term and finally produce a baby, let’s take it a step further and start sharing the blame for the situation.
Let’s test the baby for DNA then have the mother name the person or persons with whom she had sex and test them for that DNA. “Bingo” we have the other person to blame for this situation. Making him responsible for the hospital bill and extended care of the child. Let Daddy become a baby carriage pusher too. If he doesn’t want to do this, let him hear the prison door clang shut behind him.
Abortion is a worldwide problem, not just in Alabama where thinking is rare, and should be addressed with some knowledge and common sense and not just emotions.
