I'm a conservative. There are many facets to this viewpoint, just as there are many to someone who claims to be a liberal.
Today, I want to challenge the liberal viewpoint that a woman has the "RIGHT" to terminate an unborn life that she has helped create.
I have always heard liberals and feminists loudly tout that because it is her body, she has the right to do whatever she wants with it, and the unborn life that is growing inside her does not matter in any way, shape or form.
If she decides that having a child, for whatever reason, is not good for her, she then has the right to extinguish that small life.
Anyone who claims it is not "a life" is refusing to admit the scientific facts, and the truth, for the sake of their own convenience, and possibly because of a guilty conscience.
Even the "doctors" who do the terrible deed admit freely that they are killing a child.
Former abortionist, Anthony Levatino, M.D., says, "I want the general public to know that the doctors know that this is a person, this is a baby. That this is not some kind of blob of tissue . . ." And former abortionist, McArthur Hill, M.D., said, "I am a murderer. I have taken the lives of innocent babies and I have ripped them from their mother's wombs with a powerful vacuum machine."
People on the Left will stand up and scream bloody murder if someone smashes an egg in the nest of a bird on the protected animal list -- but a human child in the equivalent stage of development has zero value to them. Go figure.
So here is my question and challenge to all of you liberals.
If it 's all a matter of "choice" for a woman, why can a woman not choose to be responsible for her own actions?
Is a woman not capable of controlling herself? Is a woman so weak that she cannot abstain from taking actions that can result in causing a new life to be created?
Oh, I know it feels great! The act of procreation is immensely pleasurable, but it takes a conscious choice to participate in the act.
I hear taking large amounts of certain types of narcotics can tickle the pleasure zone so badly that you think you are in heaven, but the act of taking drugs comes with consequences.
Oooohhhh, that dreaded word, consequence.
For every action there is a reaction. Cause and effect. Absolutely scary concepts to the "do it because it feels good" crowd who want to live life like there were NO consequences for any action they deem pleasurable.
Please write in, post some comments liberal Americans. Explain to me why it is ok for a woman to end the life of a child brought into existence by her actions.
What, a man is involved as well? So true, but nature has decreed that it is the woman who will carry a child. This is a fact that those of you on the left who support the homosexual movement just hate to admit, but facts are facts - men and women are different.
If a man fathers a child, society should make him take care of his responsibilities toward this new life he helped create. I agree on this whole heartedly.
Being a good father who provides for and raises his children is the ultimate example of manhood.
What about rape and incest, you ask? Are you going to argue that a woman should be able to kill an innocent child because of the crime of the father?
First, let's get the facts straight -- less than one percent of all abortions performed in America are for rape or incest.
In these cases, the rapist is the criminal, not the newly conceived child. Killing the child of a woman who has been impregnated by rape is not the answer. The loving response is to love them both: both mother and child. The terrible crime of the father should not be cause for a death sentence for the child.
As for the man, he's a vicious criminal and he should be prosecuted for his crime. In fact I favor laws requiring castration of repeat offenders (just my personal opinion).
So tell me liberal America: What is "so compelling" -- reason why must we keep these horrendous acts of abortion legal? Shouldn't our society care for all our children, our future generation, those in the womb and those already born?
America's founding document states that all have the Right to LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Pursuit of Happiness.
Please click our comment button and explain why women cannot accept responsibility in their lives, why they do not have the strength or ability to control themselves, why we are not generous enough to help support women and children in need.
Why are men and women not able to abstain from sexual relations until such a time as they desire a child, or accept responsibility for the life they have helped create?
Please tell me why.
