Why Are You Pro-Life?
I just came across a very honest post about why nearly 50% of America is pro-choice. It’s a good read. Whether one agrees or not, it’s important to understand other perspectives so that each of us can make informed, rational decisions for ourselves.
But I’m not pro-choice. I think I listen to and understand that perspective well. I empathize. But I’m not convinced abortion is the right answer for unwanted pregnancies.
–I feel unborn women deserve rights also.
–I believe men must be held legally responsible and more accountable for their actions in unwanted pregnancies. Read that again.
–I believe churches should do less preaching against abortion and start funding and operating more maternity centers.
–I believe taxes should be lower so that parents may keep more of their money and thereby avoid daycare if so desired. (That makes more sense than keeping taxes high but offering childcare tax credits and/or deductions.) Here’s an idea: do both.
–More churches could & should offer low cost daycare.
–Universal Healthcare for young children should be seriously considered. We do it for the elderly. (P.S. Social Security is failing because abortion has eliminated expected future workforces in our economy.) That was free.
–Adoptions should be less expensive: no child left behind.
–Finally, abortion should be rare. A last resort to save the life of the mother.
A selfish, intentional abortion is the worst sort of child abuse. Abortion always ends a life. There’s no way around that. Our society should be one that welcomes and protects our most innocent life.
