I don’t get how abortion is so widely accepted as an option. I really don’t.
I mean, no matter the reasoning behind it, no matter the situation, it’s still the murder of an innocent. If doctor’s were killing newborns for any reason, people would be horrified, right? Wouldn’t they? Please tell me they would. I don’t get why killing a baby before it takes its first breath is any better.
Even if you don’t believe in souls, a fetus is a life, a unique set of genetics that’s never going to be duplicated. How is taking that life, killing a fetus any less murder just because it hasn’t finished developing yet?
I know babies are a big responsibility, that pregnancy can be a painful, life-altering burden but consider this:
If it was a newborn instead of a fetus, but for some reason the mother would still be stuck with it for nine months before they could give it up for adoption, would you still consider killing it a practical option? Even if it were a burden and a source of heartache, if it was outside the womb, living and breathing, could you condone killing it?
Why is a fetus any different? Because you can’t hear it cry when it dies? Because it hasn’t finished growing? Because it’s socially acceptable?
I just don’t understand.
