If you make the effort to save up enough money to have an abortion than why can't you make the same effort to take care of a child. I know one is long term and the other is not, but if you make such an effort to stop a life, couldn't you make the same kind of effort to support one too?
Just a food for thought. Not for or against abortion, I have my personal views on it that I do not wish to push on others, but my cousin is considering one because she can't afford a baby. So I was wondering if people who say they can't afford a baby, but make the effort to afford an abortion, should realize that they can afford a baby if they work hard at it.
Okay I'm done.

I try to imagine what I would feel like. A child is a LIFETIME expense where an abortion is a one time expense. I try to think about what I would feel like if I couldn't afford to put food in my own mouth, let alone a childs. It's a scary thought. I also think about consequences. When I was thinking about having my tubes tied one of the statements on the paper was to not make this decision based upon money because financial circumstances always change. I also think that connections are an awesome thing to have. Babies are born all the time and stuff that is no longer needed is often passed down. Personally I would explore that avenue.
