Abortion -Legal Abortion -Illegal

A Chilling Comparison

.

.

The Results if the

Anti-Abortionists

Have Their Way

The Results if the

Right of Choice in Childbearing

is Maintained

If Abortion
Is Outlawed:

If Abortion Remains
Safe & Legal:

1) Women, once again, will be required to risk their lives in a desperate attempt to limit their family size.

1) Limiting family size, even after incurring an accidental pregnancy, will be a safe, personal choice.

2) Family size will be dictated by a church-dominated-government.

2) Family size will be a matter of personal preference and conscious choice

3) Abortions will continue, only now they will be illegal and thus more costly, more dangerous, and more difficult to obtain.

3) A safe and legal abortion will be available at a fair price for all women who choose and/or require such a service.

4) Many women's reproductive organs will be permanently damaged by botched, illegal abortions. They will be unable to bear children and many will be subjected to life long health problems.

4) Women who have abortions will still be able to bear children at a later time, if and when they choose to.

5) Thousands of American women will die needlessly as a result of botched, illegal abortions.

5) A woman dying in the U.S. as a result of a legal abortion will continue to be an almost non-existent occurrence

9) A safe and legal abortion will be available at a fair price for all women who choose and/or require such a service.

10) Poor women will not be able to afford quality abortion services and will be forced to seek illegal abortions from unqualified amateurs under unsafe, degrading conditions or produce still another unwanted child.

10) A safe and legal abortion will be available at a fair price for all women who choose and/or require such a service.

16) Access to safe and legal abortions will reduce the rate the of the human population increase and thereby reduce the burdens on our environment.

17) To outlaw abortion will increase the number of teenage mothers, resulting in many budding careers and life-plans being killed and replaced by diaper changing.

17) Access to safe and legal abortions will reduce the number of teenage mothers and increase the number of young women in creative, productive (non-parental) roles in our society.

18) To outlaw abortion will increase the number of unwed mothers.

18) Access to safe and legal abortions will reduce the number of unwed mothers.

If Abortion
Is Outlawed:

If Abortion Remains
Safe & Legal:

21) To outlaw abortion will cause poverty to escalate. Already poor families will be burdened with still more unwanted children, thus, reducing their standards of living even further.

21) Access to safe and legal abortions will result in higher standards of living for many families. They will have only as many children as they can adequately care for.

22) Because poverty is the number one cause of crime, to outlaw abortion will also cause an increase in crime.

22) Access to safe and legal abortions will result in a reduction of criminal activity.

23) To outlaw abortion will increase the costs of social services (such as welfare) paid for by the taxpayers.

23) Access to safe and legal abortions will reduce the costs of social services paid for by the taxpayers.

24) To outlaw abortion will result in increased child neglect, increased child abuse, and increased child abandonment. Spousal abuse (and spousal abandonment) will also rise because the combination of more unwanted children and more frustrated parents will result in more parents taking out their frustrations on their spouses and on their children.

24) Access to safe and legal abortions will reduce child neglect, child abuse, child abandonment and spousal abuse because households with wanted children will be happier.

25) To outlaw abortion will cause the abusive use of alcohol, nicotine, cocaine and other deadly drugs to escalate. --- not only through the "Like father like son" scenario, but also because there will be more miserable people wanting to escape from their unhappy lives. More drugs also equals more crime.

25) Access to safe and legal abortions will create more families where all the children are wanted thus creating happier families, families from which there is less need and desire to escape into drugs.

Less drugs also equals less crime.

If Abortion
Is Outlawed:

If Abortion Remains
Safe & Legal:

26) If abortion is outlawed, the zealots for a-church-dominated-government will have won another victory and will go on to attack still more of our constitutional freedoms.

21) If abortion remains safe and legal, our constitutional rights and individual freedoms will have prevailed against religious tyranny and intimidation.

27) If abortion is outlawed, the anti-abortionists will amplify their attempts to restrict birth control and sex education. As a result, still more people will die unnecessarily from AIDS due to lack of information on "safe sex".

27) If abortion remains safe and legal, this will: (A) tend to promote more birth control research, (B) promote the dissemination of more information on sexual health and birth control, (C) encourage the teaching of sex education to young people, (D) reduce the number of people who die of AIDS for lack of information on "safe sex".

28) If abortion is outlawed, the anti-abortionist's war of intimidation will escalate into a war of government violence against its own citizens adding further to social unrest and to the disrespect for government. As Hitler clearly showed us, the dominator mentality is not appeased by victory. It is only encouraged.

28) Access to safe and legal abortions will promote personal freedom and encourage social stability.

29) If the anti-abortionists prevail, politicians will be even more afraid to vote against anything that the church zealots want for fear of being blacklisted and voted out of office.

29) If the right to a safe and legal abortion prevails, politicians will feel encouraged to vote for other laws that make common sense and promote personal freedoms.

30) Many highly ethical, highly just, well-educated and highly skilled people will be forced to choose between what their conscience tells them is right and what is "legal". Many of these people will technically become criminals.

30) If the right to a safe and legal abortion prevails, ethics and what is "legal" will be one step

It's sad, isn't it?   I love how people scream women's right but when it comes to this we should have none.

I kind of want to buy the "I've had an abortion" shirt even though I never have, lol.
