While I hope to work with the editor for a future re-write, here is the original piece for your reading: How about Secularists for Sharia Law? To be an atheist is to support abortion.
November 9, For One Last Time — One Pregnancy; Two Different Decisions This is one of those post that I am writing because I am tired of writing it out again and again to explain the basic points of this argument.
Alas, I need a post I can just link to. The whole idea of abortion does not belong in the adoption conversation. Let me repeat that; it is a separate conversation, a separate debate. Yes, I long to be a hypocrite. While many pro-life anti abortion, anti choiceanti women types might want to see adoption as the perfect win-win alternative for a woman facing an unplanned or ill-timed pregnancy, increasing adoption awareness does not decrease abortions.
The alternative to abortion is giving birth. The alternative to adoption is actually parenting your own child. Separate events at separate times even if in the same pregnancy. It is not like you see the evil double lines on the pee stick and then suddenly face three doors to go through parenting, adoption or abortion.
Step right up, step right up. Ah yes, I am so sorry.
I see you have peed double lines. Yes, you are now pregnant. Ok so now you have to make a choice! Will it be door number one, door number two or door number three? I have this crazy visual of some middle aged man trying to usher women away from door number 1 and to door number 3.
Just because the decisions to choose abortion or adoption can occur within the same pregnancy, does not mean that they are part and parcel of the same choice and especially, they are NOT made at the same time in the pregnancy.
Realistic sex education, not abstinence only programs. Accessibility to safe affordable birth control.
Knowledge and tools to prevent the pregnancies that lead to abortions. And in that case, when a woman is facing an unwanted pregnancy and she has determined that having a child is just not a good idea right now, often her only choice then is an abortion. See, the abortion is a reproductive decision.
She is deciding whether to reproduce of not. Does she want to go through the remaining 9 months of pregnancy? Can she afford to take the time required to complete the pregnancy? Can she undergo the medical risk of the pregnancy?
Is she ready to welcome a child into her life? Really it is a case of does she want to have a baby and be a mother? The decisions to continue or terminate a pregnancy is one that must be made early on in the pregnancy due to the time constraints.
While there are times when there are mixed emotions and fears when seeing the reality that you are, indeed, pregnant, most women DO know right way if they can pull it off and enter motherhood or whether it will be a complete impossibility.
If it is a complete impossibility and she really does really want to be pregnancy, then there is a good chance she might choose to have an abortion. If she believes that abortion is the right thing for her at the time. Now there ARE women who will not ever consider abortion. That is their choice, too.
Some women might find out that they are pregnant too late and the possibility of an abortion is off the table. Others might have difficulty finding an abortion provider or even not be able to afford an abortion.
Personally, I think it is very sad when a women must carry a pregnancy to term because she is denied reproductive health services, but that is the culture we currently live in. Often, a woman will forgo the abortion concept and decide that she is going to have her baby.Port Manteaux churns out silly new words when you feed it an idea or two.
Enter a word (or two) above and you'll get back a bunch of portmanteaux created by jamming together words that are conceptually related to your inputs.. For example, enter "giraffe" and you'll get . All my life I always assumed that I would have children, and that at some point, the biological clock and maternal instinct everyone was talking about would kick in and the time would seem right.
The decision to abort doesn’t involve just one body — it involves killing another human being that has his or her own body. Though a zygote or an embryo is not yet fully developed, both are human beings, both have substance, and both have bodies.
Pro-choice does not mean Pro-abortion, it is the right in choosing whether to reproduce, adopt, or abort. It is every human being's right to make their own decisions, and so it is a woman's right to make the choices that affect her life as she see's morally right.
