The other day when I went grocery shopping I spotted some pro-life protesters across the street waving “Stop abortion” and “This hospital kills babies in the womb” signs.(Image: NewsPick.) I had one immediate response when I saw this: What exactly do they mean by “Stop Abortion”?
But the questions didn’t stop there.
Does stopping abortions mean all abortions, no matter the reason or circumstance?
Does this also include rape victims?
What about 13-year-olds who, at 13, simply aren’t ready to become parents?
Are the people protesting for abortion bans the same people who oppose safe-sex education in schools? (Because if so, that would be messed up.)
Isn’t the world already over-populated?
What about the recession? What if the would-be parents can't afford a child?
Aren’t couples who have abortions heartsick by their decision? Why should it be made any harder for them?
What if the mother has health problems and the pregnancy threatens her life?
What about violent pro-life protesters? Doesn’t violence negate the pro-life cause?
Would banning abortions cause private “clinics” to be set up?
Why not let people make their own decisions?
Would denying people that option deny them certain freedoms?
Why aren’t people more sexually responsible?
Would banning abortion result in less unwanted pregnancies?
Will this debate ever end?
So many questions. Please share your thoughts.
