I’m a pacifist. I abhor the death penalty. I’m pro abortion. No, not “pro-choice”. Pro abortion.
Pro-choice is a cop out. Saying you’re pro choice isn’t saying what you believe, it’s simply standing in the shadow of someone else’s belief. Pro choice is saying you believe in abortion without saying it.
I don’t think there’s a sane women on earth that will abort her child once she feels a little leg kicking without a traumatizing reason and an excruciatingly painful decision process. The science behind fetal viability is sound. IMHO Roe v Wade was as good a decision as can be made on the issue.
If you’re “pro life” do you eat meat? Veal? Eggs? Do you send your children to war? Do you have a gun? Have you ever had to “put down” man’s best friend? Yes, I’ve put down a friend, and I feel guilty for not doing it sooner. I let him suffer so much. Too much. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you ( and I’m an atheist).
Part of your being is dying. None of us are getting out of here alive. The concept of expending every once of energy for every possible moment to live is an unfortunate belief to subscribe to. We all need to learn to check out when the time comes – it’s inevitable accept it.
Right to life? A right can be exercised or not. I have a “right to life” but should the time ever come where for whatever reason I chose the alternative – it’s my choice, and I don’t need to exercise my right to life any more – please don’t force me to live. That would be torture.
I cringe at those that state it’s nobel to know your fetus has a potentially horrific disease, and still choose to carry the baby to term. How do you know that the severe illness isn’t tantamount to bringing the child into a living hell? A life where every moment of every day is nothing but humiliation, pain, and misery. Playing “God”? You’re playing it either way. It’s a decision, albeit a tough one. There are often times in lives when choices have to be made for you; at the beginning, middle, or end.
Part of the problem with the far right getting so much press and mileage from their beliefs, is that many in the middle and left are meek and afraid to speak their minds. For every action there is an equal an opposite reaction – there are not near enough reactions to temper the far right.
If you’re pro abortion – state it. Loud and clear.
