This week, I want to talk about a highly debatable topic. I know Republicans generally don't approve of abortion, but I wanted to bring some attention to it and my opinion.
I feel like many consider it "inhumane" to abort a baby, and it's okay to think that! Killing a baby, unborn or not, is a really scary concept. However, I believe that it is the parents' decision whether they should abort their child. I'm "pro choice," and everybody has their own choice. If you truly aren't ready to raise a child and you don't want to, then please don't!
Studies have even shown that the fetus can't feel pain if you abort it early on (within 20 weeks), because it's still a fetus and hasn't developed the necessary pain receptors and nerves. The procedure also isn't painful for the mother, at least not physically. The thing about my decision to be pro choice is the fact that there's always certain people to factor in. Some people, once they give birth to their baby, will hate their child so much that they kill them after they're born. That's even worse than abortion, because at least the fetus can't feel pain early on.
Some people really aren't ready for having a child, and maybe you'll give the baby up for adoption. Or maybe you'll choose to abort the fetus. While I understand why many people think that abortion should be illegal, people who want to get an abortion will still get an abortion at an illegal clinic that's maybe even more dangerous/unsanitary for the mother and her child. Just like people who do illegal drugs. They get it somehow, and they'll continue to if they truly want it. People who don't want their baby will still kill their child (as horrible as that is) as soon as their born, if they truly can't deal with it.
Usually, I would say, "Try to make it work." Try, but there will always be cases where abortion is necessary and the mother and father should be the ones to make the choice regarding abortion, not some politicians who have no idea of what the family may be going through.
Important note: if you leave a baby in front of a police department, fire department, or any town government building, the workers that finds the baby will take it, no questions asked! So if you do go through with birth but do not want to keep your baby, you can leave it outside a building and they will take the baby in and put in into an adoption system or take care of him or her.
