Abortion is “totally obsolete”
Editor’s note: Last week we posted our annual request for responses from our readers to this question. What would you say to someone who is not hostile or belligerent (that’s a whole other topic) but who simply has never engaged the abortion directly?
What could be said out loud in one or two (at most three) minutes?
Periodically I will be running responses. If you would like to contribute, please email me at email@example.com. Just to simplify matters, I will use the respondent’s first name and the initial of the last name.
The following is from Frances F.:
This is what I might say to such persons:
Are you aware that a baby’s heart starts beating 18-21 days after conception? Did you ever think about the fact that, even though they can’t speak yet, unborn children are human persons with souls, and unique personalities? Did you know that it’s been proven that they can feel pain at or before 20 weeks? You know, you and I used to be little babies, waiting to be born too, and our parents chose to love us, and allow us to live. Life is the most important right, but it’s the one that is so often taken away.
Another point I want to mention is that most women think they want an abortion because they cannot, or simply do not want to take care of a child. But adoption is the most sensible option, in either scenario. The child gets to live, and the mother doesn’t have to undergo a painful, invasive, and dangerous surgery that will end the life of her child, and increase the chances that she would have breast cancer.
Abortion is not only terribly wrong, but because of adoption, it’s also totally obsolete.
