The reasons a woman chooses to have an abortion are not black and white or one size fits all. For some it’s an extremely difficult decision and for others is frighteningly too easy.
Reasonable people can agree on exceptions such as the health of the mother, but the overwhelming majority of abortions are done solely out of convenience on some level. Health of the mother makes up a small portion of reasons an abortion is performed. Rape, incest almost don’t register at all…and it’s a travesty that fact it’s never considered when debating this issue.
There are a couple of things that really shouldn’t be up for discussion:
1. The meme that you can’t tell a woman what to do with her body is a complete red herring designed to distract from what is actually being discussed. Her body is not the issue, we are all talking about the body growing inside her. That body is a growing life, and abortion is about ending that life. Nothing more, nothing less.
2. If we are to agree on allowing abortion at all, even in the narrowest of circumstances, then we all need to understand that we are creating a category of murder that society deems acceptable.
Upon the release of the 7th Planned Parenthood video about baby organ harvesting Matt Walsh wrote a very, very strongly worded take on abortion titled “If You Still Support Planned Parenthood, You Are Simply Not a Decent Person.”
It’s hard to read, but everyone should read it, even those who are pro-life. It’s a good reminder of the unmitigated evil being perpetrated by Planned Parenthood.
Then we have the video below. As a parent myself the concept of abortion in the abstract is heartbreaking enough…but the details here are graphic and gruesome (this is your warning). The only way a person can be pro-abortion after knowing these details is if they willfully ignore them.
