No matter how loudly or how often pro-lifers yell about wanting to save the life of an unborn child, I don’t believe it for one minute. If life is so important to these people, why are children dying of hunger? Why are there so many children in the foster care system? Why is there such a huge problem with helping the poor? Do pro-lifers not care about the quality of life of that child once it is born?
Doesn’t appear as though they do.
Once a child is born, most pro-lifers turn their backs on that child, and the child becomes the problem of the mother who “had children when she couldn’t afford them”. I know everyone has heard that question asked. Why have children when you can’t afford them? That’s the reasoning used by the Right when wanting to slash welfare, food stamps, and any other program designed to assist the poor in our society.
Does that make sense? Of course not. The reason it makes no sense is because the anti-abortion position found on the Right isn’t about life at all. It is about control.
Key Janet Jackson.
Pro-life to me would mean pro-life for ALL life, not just the unborn. How can anyone say they care about life, with restrictions? Either you care about life, or you don’t. I still haven’t figured out how someone says they are pro-life AND pro death penalty. By saying that people should be put to death, doesn’t that mean a person who professes to care about life has restrictions?
One of my anti-choice friends always says God said Thou Shall Not Kill. When I asked her about the death penalty, she said that didn’t count. How can that not count? Did the “Thou Shall Not Kill” Commandment come with an asterisk?
They aren’t pro-life for unborn children. They are anti-choice for women.
It has never been about the unborn. All it is is a throwback to the days when women were considered property. Nothing more, nothing less. What is baffling to me are other women who go along with this anti-choice position.
It is about control, pure and simple. Control of women. For some unknown reason, Anti-choice people want to make decisions for a woman regarding one of the most personal and intimate decisions ever, and yet don’t want to be involved when it comes to caring for that child once it is here.
I have always said that anyone who doesn’t believe in abortion has the right to choose not to have one. The woman who wants to have an abortion has the right to choose to have one. Everyone has the same choice. I’m not in any position to make a decision for anyone other than myself. I don’t want anyone making decisions for me. If someone wants to make a care-giver decision, they should BE the caregiver.
I guarantee that if anti-choice people were forced to care for the unborn child once it is born, they would scream that their rights were being infringed upon.
Oh wait, they are already doing that!
