Pro Life

You know abortion is wrong by the fact that if the doctor screws it up the result if life. I have often thought about how people that are pro choice can argue against this point.

I have read a number of cases where doctors have messed the abortion up and the babies lived. A lot of the time the babies will end up with deformities or brain damage as a result of the attempted abortion. I read about how one daughter who was able to forgive her mom for trying to abort her.

The only argument I have heard is that women should have the right to choose what happens to their bodies. I can agree that women should have a right to choose what happens to their bodies but what about the baby’s rights? The woman made the choice to engage in activities where she risked getting pregnant. I think that was the choice and if she gets pregnant then she has to live with the consequences of her choices. What other consequence of sex can you choose to abort? If you got an STD can you choose to opt out of that? Can you opt out if get HIV?

My rights end where yours begin. If you use your right to choose to act in a way that results in a pregnancy then your rights end and that baby’s rights begin. It is not your right to decide if that baby gets to live or die. Whether you want the baby or not, whether you can afford the baby or not, it doesn’t change the fact that you do not have the right to decide life or death.
