You just made a great case for killing granny too. An argument should apply in all situations to be considered a valid argument, so one can assume by your comments that you would also favor killing anybody else that could become a burden to you. And it's a real stretch to say that you are helping the child by killing it, because their future may not live up to your standards. To a mother who hasn't bonded yet with her child, abortion might seems like an easy solution, while parting with her child after it's born would be difficult emotionally. The irony of this is that a mother who won't give the child away because it is too precious will kill that same child.<quoted text>
What is "truth" for you may not be for someone else.
A "truth" for me is that it's wrong for anyone who has had even one drink to drive a car. That's definitely not a truth for very many people. I know why I feel that way. But even telling someone why I do doesn't make it truth for them.
You continue to ignore the fact that a pregnancy involves far more than 9 months. It's a life long commitment. It's not something to take lightly. Having a child should be a decision made with a great deal of forethought and consideration. Not made simply because the condom broke or birth control failed.
Doesn't a child deserve MORE than that? Doesn't every child deserve to be born because his or her parents WANTED them?
You are only focusing on the embryo or the fetus. You are not thinking of a colicky infant, or a two year old with an ear infection who keeps you up all night, or a smart-mouthed six year old or the teenager who is rebelling. It's FAR MORE than you are even looking at.
If a woman knows she cannot be the mother a child deserves, and knows she cannot give the child up for adoption once born, she is making the responsible decision by having an abortion.
Anti-abortion views have nothing to do with the comfort of the parents, but are about the basic right to life of every individual no matter how they got there, and regardless of whether the child is one-day-old(post conception), or one-hundred-years-old.
