It seems like all you hear from the “Pro-Lifers” is how abortion is murder, abortion is killing babies, and the babies have rights too.
Well my question is, “How many babies, kids, and/or teens have they adopted? There are thousands of the unwanted in orphanages and foster homes all across the country. These unwanted children grow up seeing others around them adopted while they sit, waiting to be loved.
Then at the ripe old age of 18, they are turned away from the only place they have called home. They have gone their entire short lives never knowing a family bond, never knowing what it means to be loved or to give love in return.
It has been proven that these individuals usually turn to a life of crime because they have been institutionalized their whole lives and can never really function in a normal society. Many will even turn to drugs to escape the feeling of being unwanted.
Which is more cruel – ending a semi life before it even begins or force a being to live a life of solitude and a loveless/unwanted existence?
What about all the children that are thrown away in dumpsters like trash to suffer a long slow death? What about all the children that are abused by the parents that never wanted them and feel stuck with them, and then take out the hate they feel on these children?
How many of these children do the “Pro-Lifers” rescue or mentor or council? How many children from rape victims have they adopted and counseled?
Okay “Pro-Lifers” let’s say there is no more abortion for any reason, now what? Now what about the education, healthcare, housing, mental health, and general well-being of these children you forced to be born? What about the healthcare and mental health of the mother that was raped or a victim of incest?
Are you all NOW going to change your views on free healthcare? Are you all going to rush out and adopt a child or two or three? Or are these unwanted kids not your problem now that you have forced them to live their life as outcasts?
