Is this honestly still open for debate? “Should there be restrictions on the availability of abortion”?
Flat out: Yes. There should also be no war, no murder, no drugs, no theft, no violence, and the world should be a perfect, happy place where we all get along and everything goes according to plan.
Unfortunately – It’s not. We’re not that evolved yet. And as there is still war, murder, drugs, theft, violence, and the world is not a perfect, happy place etc., who are we, imperfect as we are, to say whether or not your reasons for making the choice to abort a child are wrong?
There are those who say we shouldn’t do it, at all. You’re wrong.
And those this article deals with, “restricting” it.
Let me ask you, reader: Do you lock your door at night? Do your close your bedroom door to keep your roommate from seeing you doing… whatever it is that you’re doing? Is it any of my business?
See that, it’s called privacy.
Now, let’s impose restrictions on abortion.
A woman walks into a clinic, and is handed the following questionnaire, to decide whether or not she fits the “restrictions” on performing an abortion:
1. How many sexual partners have you had?
2. Was the act that resulted in the pregnancy consensual?
3. Are you now, or have you ever used an illicit substance?
4. Have you ever been sexually assaulted?
6. What is your age?
Now, should you ever end up having to make the truly difficult decision of terminating a pregnancy, do you honestly want to deal with this, as well as the probably moral dilemma you’re already dealing with?
Didn’t think so.
