Living For The Sake Of Being Alive (and who really cares about the rape victims, anyway?)
It's the mother's body, and not anyone else's. What if she was raped, then what? You're going to make the mother (who could be below 18) go through the horror and pain of child-birth after what she's gone through, and make the child live a life of darkness if it's born into a family that doesn't want it or put up for a life as an orphan child at an abortion center? Being ANTI-abortion is just pure inconsideration for the child and mother. Are you honestly saying that people should leave the child alive simply for the sake of being alive? Regardless of the long-term consequences of it's birth on both the child and it's mother (who anti-abortionists never seem to take into consideration)?
I repeat what I said. You are keeping the child alive simply for the sake of living. I agree with the fact that everyone has a right to life, but the child isn't even born yet. By banning abortion, not only does this cause negative consequences for the mother (as I mentioned), but also for the child (as I also mentioned). What quality of life are you giving it? You also need to think about societies like in the Middle East, India, Pakistan, Africa, etc, where if the mother gives birth to a child out of wedlock, even if it's by rape, both she and her child become social outcasts, and can't fend for themselves, or even feed themselves. They end up living in the street. A lot of these women can't get proper medical care, so they might have to give birth with no midwife or anything. Not to mention, let's say it was a little girl, raped by her father, for example. Girls can hit puberty from as young as nine, and it's not unheard of that girls can get pregnant from that age as well. And yet, the girl is still a child. Her body is not even properly developed to birth a child, and it's highly likely that she die in the process. Even if she doesn't, why add to the trauma? You agreed rape was horrible, so why would you add to the horror by throwing unwanted pregnancy and childbirth into the mixture? I don't know if you'd seen a birthing video, but childbirth is not this 'magical' thing. It's horrific and painful. And if the girl dies in the process, whether it was because she was too young or because she was in Congo or wherever, what will happen to the child? Was keeping it alive the best choice, in all honesty? Women all over the world are raped by the second. Is it fair to let them give birth to the children of their attackers and be forever tied to them? And besides, what right does anybody have to dictate what goes on in their wombs? It should be illegal to kill your child once you birth it, because then it is a living, breathing, individual officially on the Earth. But if it's not born yet, the mother should have a right to her own womb. If you, or your mother/sister/friend/daughter was raped, would make them birth a baby they never even wanted anyway? Would you?
It's their vagina. Especially in regards to rape victims. If they couldn't decide what went in, won't you have the decency to at least let them decide what goes out?
