Yes, it is. This debate is one that makes me scratch my head because the debate somehow is turned into “women’s rights”. I don’t know how this falls under women’s rights being that there is another being involved. I also thought that the Declaration of Independence states that life is a right, although I’ve never heard that particular case being presented. One of the great things about women is that they see the better side of things naturally. How does the unborn all of a sudden simply become a fetus in their eyes? I’m generalizing of course. I guess even that term presents its problems since all one would have to do is ask “what is it a fetus of?” Everyone was a fetus at some point in their lives. I’m very adamant when it comes to the plight of women, but abortion isn’t a woman’s right in my eyes. If you could ask that fetus if it wants to be killed and it was able to respond, do you think it would say “yes”? No matter how you look at it, you are destroying a life.
Another big debate is where life begins. I believe both sides are wrong in the debate. A fertilized egg does nothing. A fertilized egg is simply a fertilized egg. Obviously it is a living thing long before birth, so that is a ludicrous argument. When a fertilized egg attaches itself to the womb is where life begins. That is when the fertilized egg begins to divide. That is when the magic of life begins. It is the liberal’s idea though that allows for babies to be killed after either a botched abortion or shortly after and no punishment is wanted. In Chicago after a baby survived an abortion attempt a doctor decided to put it in the laundry to die. A woman found it and held it as it died. A law was proposed to have it where doctors will have to help the baby live if it survives an abortion attempt. Obama as a state senator voted “no” to that bill. No matter his excuse, and he’s given a dishonest one, he voted no to have a baby that survives an abortion attempt to receive medical attention. Even NARAL had no problem with that bill, which then became a national law. Many times when babies are killed after birth, the punishment given is a slap on the wrist if one is even given. The thought that babies in the womb are simply fetuses allows for these horrible things to go on.
I find it sad that people portray pro-lifers as extremists for not wanting women to abort their babies. What is more extreme than ending innocent life? “What a terrible thing it is to force babies to live!” Are you serious? That’s extremist? The greatest proponent for abortion, or what we call “women’s rights” was Margaret Sanger. She is someone liberals and specifically liberal women point towards as being a great woman and advocate for women’s rights. What they won’t tell you, either because they don’t want you to know or they don’t know themselves is that she was a huge advocate of eugenics. She wanted minorities and certain “undesirables” to be forced to be sterilized. She was a racist who hoped abortions would lower the population of the black community and spoke before a KKK rally. It was also her idea to have a few black leaders to speak for the rest of the race to herd them into one mindset like cattle, hence Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton among others. Those racists on the right want black children to live while the hero to the left wanted black children to be aborted, which is why there are so many Planned Parenthood offices in minority communities. As I do with everything I write here, I only use facts. This is the true history of Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood.
Biblically speaking, John the Baptist when he was a baby in the womb lept when he felt the presence of Jesus while He was in the womb as Mary came into the room. Such a beautiful story in the Bible, isn’t it? There is already awareness the babies in the womb have. They sense light and they feel pain. They are just like you and I, except they depend on their mothers to keep them alive. Just because they are vulnerable, it doesn’t mean they don’t have the right to live. I think because they are vulnerable, they should have more protections legally than you or I would have.
I know some will say “what about the health of the mother?”, but that could mean anything. If a woman’s life is truly on the line, then she should still keep the baby. Give the baby a chance at life, just like those mothers had. With proper medical attention, death from childbirth is nearly a forgotten thing. As for any other reason, abortion is evil in the eyes of God. If a woman is raped, abortion is still wrong. The man who raped her deserves to be executed in my opinion, but shouldn’t punish an innocent life for the crime of the rapist. If a girl is molested, it’s the same case. The man should be executed and the baby should not be punished. Women and girls who are raped will receive no more sympathy than by me. Nothing anguishes me more about humanity than people who rape or molest, but it would be a horrible thing to destroy an innocent life. Women who just see their babies as an inconvenience have some problems seeing life for what it is. If a baby is such a burden upon their selfish lives, then give it up for adoption. There are plenty of people waiting to adopt children. Mother Teresa said it best about women who don’t want to raise the babies they carry “give them to me!” Now that was a woman. There are plenty of people out there ready, willing, and able to raise the babies you don’t want. You have no excuse but to let your child live, either with you or somebody else.
I think this really is the beginning of human evil for a society to say the unborn doesn’t have a right to life. This is the beginning of immorality. If we can’t decide as a people the most innocent and the most helpless of us all have a right to live, then what moral highground is there for us? If they don’t deserve life, then who among us does?
Update: Recently there was audio released of then state senator Obama giving reasons why he was voting against giving medical attention to babies who survive abortion attempts. Originally during the presidential campaign he said that the law was redundant since there was a federal law already on the books. My question is why not then just vote “present” like he did on nearly everything else? I said in the post that he had given a dishonest reason. I knew he was lying and now we have proof. The real reason he voted against it mainly was because it would go against the supposed mothers’ wishes. That is some sick opinion to have that he didn’t think a baby that survives an abortion attempt should be given medical attention. As I said, even NARAL was fine with that bill. This is the man the United States elected president.
