I Am Pro Choice. (this post is brought on by something that came across my FB wall)
I Agree that if you don’t want kids or can’t have them for whatever reason then you should not get pregnant. I think this is where Adoption comes into call.
However I believe that the young woman whom while walking home from work would not want her rapist child. Or the 10,11, 12 and so on year old girl who gets raped by a stranger or teacher or even father/brother/uncle/grandfather/boyfriend/friend of the family does not want that child. The point is, Woman/girls who have suffered rape, if found pregnant most likely be greatly affected for the better if their rapist child was removed from them. I can only imagine the psychological trauma a woman/girl would go through on not only a daily, but a hourly and minutely basis knowing that she had to carry her rapist child because some politician passed a law that she would face criminal charges if she rid herself of the child…. That would be detrimental to her life. Just think of it for a moment. Woman would go to extreme lengths if such was upon her. Because of a law like that you may have a case where the woman, would rather die/kill herself than carry her rapist child. Then in that instance when not only is the life of that woman; who people have loved her and cared for her, but also the unwanted child is no more.
So tell me ProLifers… is saving THAT unwanted child’s life worth it? Not only will the woman be gone, but her parents and family will be left with a whole in their hearts. What could be will never happen for that woman.
For reason like this. I Am Pro-Choice.
