I am pro-life. I always have been. And I always will be. However, I was watching the TV one day, and I saw a surgery being performed which was radical and almost unheard of. Spina bifida, a disease in which the spinal cord is formed outside of the body, was detected on a baby inside a mother's womb. The child would surely die within a few months after birth, and I believe the mother may have been in danger...whatever, that's not the point. To correct this condition, doctors first made an incision in the mother, removed the uterus which contained the baby, and made an incision in the uterus and operated on the baby. The baby was not even in its third trimester yet. However, when the intial incision was made, the baby's hand moved and very gently grabbed the finger of the doctor who was operating on it.
No joke. Now, would you say to the baby, "Screw you. You weren't planned. I'll just give birth to you and smother you, or take RU-486, etc."
And may I add that the partial birth (also called late-term) abortion is one of the most macabre and disgusting procedures ever imaginable.
This procedure involves having the doctor stick a scalpel/scissors/sharp object into the uterus, killing the baby by stabbing it an sucking out its brains, and giving birth to the dead baby. That is sick and disgusting. And the egotistical, "holier than thou," lying letch, Bill Clinton, who just left office, vouched for this. This has been practiced before, I hope it does not become common.
The only cases where abortion is necessary in my opinion occur when the life of the mother is endangered, or in the rare cases of rape and incest. Even in the latter cases, adoption can be chosen as a viable alternative, although the child may never know who its biological parents are (especially in cases of rape if the rapist is never apprehended).
Otherwise, for all of the women scrweing around carelessly, I have no pity for you. I believe premarital sex is wrong in the first place, and the only complete way to guarantee no unwanted pregnancies is by abstinence. Condoms fail, and the birth control pill fails. Even though it is rare, you could be that 3-5% of "the pill" users who get pregnant. Abortion is not birth control, nor should it be viewed as that. And if the mother chooses to have her child and is not financially able to provide for it, I can tell you that thousands of families across America would love to have a child to call their own via adoption. Also, many women who receive abortions do receive emotional scars and resent carrying out their abortions.
