Do you mean induced or spontaneous abortion?
Each of us defines our obligation toward the community a little differently. No one approves of abortion, but for many people it is preferable to bringing unwanted children into the world.
What do you think?
Mercy Killing. That's what the Nazis called thier policy of exterminating the "undesirables" (or unwanteds) out of their society.
The idea of murdering children because they're too young to care for themselves is no different than murdering the ailing, elderly, or mentally handicapped - which is what the Nazis did. Okay, so some children were not planned, and it hurts me to say that they weren't wanted, but we have no right to play God and decide who lives and who dies. Mercy-killing isn't merciful. Neither is abortion. It's murder that's been legalized.
I was one of those "unwanteds" that ended up being put up for adoption; me and my two brothers. We were adopted by a couple that could not have children of their own. Don't believe that abortion is the only way. It's not.
And if I may have the audacity to say so, if the US legalizes infantcide (which we have) than who is to say that further down the road the mentally ill won't be next. Or the elderly. Or those with physical deformities? Or orphans and children who've been put into foster care? Or people who don't conform to a particular religion?
We've started with infants. We won't end there. I hate to say this, but I wholeheartedly beleive it. Some say history repeats itself. I beleive that too. We could be the next Nazi Germany. All it takes is a few more steps. Just think about that.
