Misconceptions of abortion & things to think about

  1. Making abortion illegal will stop abortions — Yes, you can stop legal abortions, but most women are going to find a way to get an abortion either way. Illegal abortions are very dangerous and will only cause the mortality rates to go up as many complications can occur such as excessive blood loss.
  2. Rape victims can just give it up to be adopted— the foster care system is fucked up, that baby has a very low chance of living a happy life there. 80% of foster children deal with significant mental issues. Not to mention why would you ever make a woman go through delivering her rapist’s child. Women are not vessels for your children. If a man could get pregnant, he would never be forced to keep a child. In fact, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, 19.7 million children, more than 1 in 4, live without a father in the home. As you can see, men have the option of just leaving, whereas we don’t. Restricting abortion is another way of putting all of the responsibility on the female. Imagine being raped. Wouldn’t it be traumatic? Wouldn’t you want to forget? Wouldn’t you not want to carry a child for 9 months that reminds you what happened?
  3. An important statistic — In 2014, 64,300 children had been stuck in the foster care system for more than 3 years, 28,000 of them for 5 years or more.
  4. You are killing babies — It’s actually called an embryo until it is eight weeks old, then it’s called a fetus till it is born. The heartbeat doesn’t appear till about week five or six.
  5. You have the right to tell other people what to do with their bodies — nope! you have to accept that other people don’t always share the same religion as you and weren’t brought up the same way. Religion is not an excuse to be judgmental of other people, especially when you don’t follow everything else the Bible says either. Don’t be a hypocrite. If you are uncomfortable reading this, you should be, keep yourself in check and remember your religion doesn’t make you superior.
  6. Defunding planned parenthood is a good idea — FALSE; illegal abortions are going to go way way up if you do that; keep in mind planned parenthood not only provides access for safe abortions, but also provides STD testing, birth control (the most common way to not get pregnant) and many other services at a low cost. This is obviously a necessity especially for women who normally wouldn’t be able to afford going to another doctor.
