It's Really Sad

that people who have abortions feel they aren't murdering anyone. I believe that's very selfish. A fetus did not ask to be conceived out of wedlock because their parents just happen to be unmarried and got so caught up in the moment of lust and slept with each other because the thought they were "in love" with one another and they claim that conception just happened, so that justifies why they had premarital sex and to destroy an unborn child because of their irresponsiblity and because they don't want to have the inconvenience of having children when it wasn't the poor baby's fault that it was conceived. The two "lovers" have nobody else to blame but themselves and to kill an embryo out of their self centeredness is cruel and sinful.

Everytime I read opinions such as this, it makes me really glad that Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, 93 S. Ct. 705, 35 L. Ed. 2d 147 (1973), is the law and is not and has not been overturned or modified, notwithstanding 38 years of substantially conservative judicial appointments.

MSL, you are ignorant and naive. There are many people who find themselves unable to carry a pregnancy to term, for many different reasons. There are women and girls from many diverse backgrounds who are faced with this decision. It is not only lustful, pre-marital sex between intelligent and consenting adults that can result in a terminated pregnancy.

Every child has the right to a safe, nurturing and loving environment, from the first moment of their conception. If a woman is unable to provide these things for her unborn child, who are you to inflict a lifetime of potential suffering on that human being, should they be born physically or mentally affected by an unhealthy pregnancy, or raised in a resentful and uncommitted family?

As a species, we have been given the gifts of compassion, mercy and intelligence. I believe it is our responsibility as humans and parents to use these gifts to prevent suffering, or at least not to prolong it where we have the ability to end it.

Yes, it is heartbreaking when people are unwilling to take responsibility for the consequences of their unwise behaviour, but it is not your life. It is the lives of these women, some children themselves, and their children, born and unborn. Until you have walked in the shoes of every woman who has been faced with the decision of whether or not to end her pregnancy, you really are in no position to judge us.

Me too

If you are referring to sexual assault or abuse to justify abortion, those two factors are no excuse for it either. And for the record, if you feel that my honest opinion is judgmental, than that's on you. I speak the truth and the truth kills. Especially the kind of truth of how God feels about it also.
