I'm fuming (O/T)

  • I've been reading my Cosmo today and right now I'm so mad I can hardly see straight. The issue is pretty good right up until the 2 page article on a woman's "right to choose". I don't mean to offend anyone, but it makes me so angry that some people feel that choosing to kill a woman's unborn child is considered her right. Why is it that so many were angered when Laci Peterson's baby, Conner, was killed, and yet so many babies are murdered everyday and people think it's great that women have that choice?? Is it better for a baby to be killed by its mother than by its father?? I don't understand. A baby has a heartbeat before most women even know that they could be pregnant. An unborn baby can feel pain within just 8 weeks. It blows my mind to think that people who wouldn't dream of hurting a newborn think it's okay as long as the baby is still in a woman's body. I'm sorry, I had to vent.

  • There is a big difference between murdering a pregnant woman and her baby at seven months gestation and a mother choosing to terminate her pregnancy at 6 weeks. It's about choice and also timing. A woman can't just walk into a clinic whenever she wants and request an abortion. Yeah, you can during the first trimester but after that it isn't a service offered on demand.

  • Yeah, they touch on that, too, that it's such a horrible thing that Bush is trying to put the law into effect saying that after the first trimester abortions should be banned. I understand that people have different reasons for getting abortions, but just being lazy and promiscuous shouldn't be one of them. The only time I think an abortion should be legal is if the mother is in danger or the baby has a defect that would limit their quality of life (and even then I'm not so sure it's the right choice). Bottom line is, a baby is a baby whether 6 days old or 6 months old. Abortion doesn't only affect a woman's body, it terminates a very real life. There are so many people out there who are trying so hard to have children and would like to adopt, and yet so many women are choosing the selfish way out instead.
