Question for Pro-Life Mom's...

I just want to ask mothers who are pro-life and against abortion for all reasons a question.

If your president passed a law telling you that you had to have an abortion how would you feel?? Lets just look at China and their laws regarding kids. How would you feel if the government took a stand against your beliefs and you had no say in what was being done to your body??

I'm pretty sure the answer is going to be you would'nt like it or you wouldn't do it. Now look at what you want to be done. You want abortions to be illegal and force a woman to do the same thing you wouldn't want done to you.

I've just read too many abortion posts and want to see how everyone would feel if the tables were turned on them. If it gets dramatic I'll delete it, I just want honest answers.

  • The arguement that they shouldn't have had unprotected sex doesn't hold water, many women get pregnant despite using birth control. And you are all avoiding the question. Would you feel it was ok for the government to decide that the moral standards of the day dictated that unmarried women, women over a certain age, or women who already had a child had to have an abortion if they got pregnant (whether it was on purpose or not)? Or if the government dictated that women of a certain age, financial status or with more than 2 kids had to have her tubes tied? The majoritiy of Americans believe it is immoral to have more children than you can afford, would you be comfortable with the government setting guidelines on how many kids you can have based on your income because it fits the morals of the majority? Forgetting what you personally feel about abortion try to answer those political questions.

  • well I would not like that at all, but the facts remain the same if your adult enough to have sex your adult enough to give birth.

    These women were NOT FORCED TO GET PREGNANT!!!!! They chose to be irresponsible and need to face up to whatever happens as a result of their unprotected sex!!!!!!!!!

  • "You want to see how everyone would feel if the tables were turned on them?" How is forcing someone to kill their unborn child the same as a woman deciding she doesn't want a child and doing it on her own? No matter how you say it, abortion is murder. Telling a woman she can not have an abortion is not the same. If a woman does not want a child then they should not have unprotected sex - and yes the majority of abortions are used by woman who were just irresponsible, not woman who were raped. Women have the choice to use protection or abstain from sex. That is their choice. Just as if the government said they would make you have an abortion if you conceived a child, we would have the choice to use some type of protection.

  • Who forced these women to get pregnant? Everyone knows that even with birth control there is a small chance of getting pregnant. If these women don't want kids, then they shouldn't be having sex.

  • I agree with all the answers above. There is always another choice other than abortion (adoption, raising the child yourself) and if you are going to take the risk and have sex, then you'd better darn well be ready to accept responsibility for the consequences.

  • I want to live in a country where our government and our leader (not hardly going to happen with baby killer Obama) believe in the sanctity of life and will preserve and protect human beings...including those who are not yet born.

  • Except your example is not the same thing. The baby in the womb is a human being and has a right to live - even if the mother doesn't think he/she does. It's not right to discriminate against a human being just because of their size, stage in development or their location.

    Being pro-life is not about trying to deny a woman a right - it's about protecting the right of the unborn child. A woman has the right to choose whether or not to have sex, whether or not to raise a child, but the child's right to live takes presidence over the woman's "right" to choose an abortion.

    No - but again it's not the same thing as trying to protect the life of a human being that happens to be located inside a womb.   And the government passes "moral" laws all the itme.  Just because omeone feels blacks are less than human doens't mean that they can then treat them as such and deny them rights.  Likewise, just because someone thinks a baby in a womb is less than human doens't mean they should be able to deny them the right to live.
