I saw this statement on a pro-choice site and it occurred to me that, YES!!! Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family. As an anti-abortion Catholic woman, I totally agree. That’s why there’s the choice to use birth control, and/or abstinence if you DEFINITELY don’t want to parent with that jerk. You decide by CHOOSING not to get pregnant with someone you don’t want to be with. Birth control has been proven to be effective. If you CHOOSE to have unprotected sex, well then – you choose to have a baby because that’s what happens with unprotected sex, right? Ya, ya, I know that birth control can fail 0.0099%. Tell me, how in heck did it fail for over 54 million times? (The number of abortions in America since 1973 -I’m going to puke) I don’t understand that.
The next failed argument is ‘I don’t see you taking in unwanted babies’. Well… if there were actually ‘unwanted’ babies to take in, I would. But since the few number of unwanted babies who actually come to term are taken up for adoption lickety-split, there’s none left for me. Babies are adopted fast. Bring your baby to term and offer adoption. You’ll see for yourself just how fast. There are loving parents just waiting with open arms.
The next failed argument – there are hundreds of thousands of unwanted babies now. Where? Tell me where in America are there hundreds of thousands of unwanted ‘babies’ now. Oh! You mean children who have been mentally abused by their parents who no longer want them because they can’t handle the mental instability of the child due to their own cause? Those babies? Now that’s irresponsible. But let’s not let the children suffer. We have homes for these children. Where do you think they live? In a homeless shelter? In an orphanage? Seriously, people reach out to children in need ALL THE TIME. You will find these people are Christians. Period. It’s what we do. We protect those who cannot protect themselves. Like unborn children.
