bethany said:Go research the statistics...there an an estimated 1,000,000+ people currently seeking to adopt a child (or two or three or more). There are about 1.5-1.6 million abortions performed each year.
A lot of those children could find homes immediately. I think we need a more efficient adoption system. I think we need better programs for children (as I stated in my post which apparently no one really read thoroughly). My point was that 99% of the time, abortion is NOT the "only option". My point was that there is no individual freedom when it comes to choosing to end another person's life. "A woman's decision" to drown her kids in the bathtub is a homicide. "A woman's decision" to drown her unborn in salt water and dismember it with tongs is "Freedom". Sorry, but that rings of BS to me.
jenna said:plus, IMO, I think people should be concerned about the lives of these unwanted children who do get born b/c of this new law. there are enough children who have miserable lives living in poverty, abusive situations, in cages etc. please don't compound the problem with more unloved children (not saying they will all be unloved). why don't lawmakers put their efforts toward helping children who need care now!! hope this law gets overturned soon
sorry, I get a little steamed when I keep hearing about abused children.
(p.s. I do think there is an exception when the mother's life is in danger).
greyhoundgal said:You have such a good point and I come face to face with the reality of unwanted children everyday as a Child Protective Services investigator. I have seen child abuse and neglect beyond what many of you can comprehend and I can honestly say that some of these children will probably grow up and wish that they had been aborted, and sadly many of these unwanted children suffer a death that is so horrible, none of us can even begin to imagine.
I think that if people saw what I saw everyday it would change their minds about abortion.
