The abortion debate only exists because politicians want to ensure that citizens are divided on the issue. The attention comes before every election with knowledge of those who are advocates for pro-life will cause a disruption. To ensure that Equality and Equal Rights are granted to every person, this particular debate needs to be seen for what it is really.
Learn Why Abortion Isn't a Social Issue- It's Political BS
The abortion debate that continues in America is nothing more than Bullshit perpetuated by politicians in order to divide citizens on specific issues.
Why Abortion Shouldn't Be An Issue
My name is Ray, short for Raymond D Choiniere II. Now, I don't really need to know your name, but you're more than welcome to leave your name and a comment about your thoughts. It will be my pleasure to ensure equality and equal rights are measured at all costs.
Your individual rights are just as important as is the next person. I don't want to infringe upon your rights, and I'm pretty sure you don't want other people infringing upon your rights either. So, that means, a common ground must become known, so no rights are infringed upon. If that confuses you, then I'm sorry. However, as a part of society, on an individual level, laws are passed to ensure the greater good of America. Most of the time, National Security is attached to such things, but not when talking about Abortion.
Let's get one thing straight about the Abortion debate- (a) the actual debate is meaningless, (b) it is not an actual social problem and (c) no infringement of rights are allowed.
Let's address the arguments as they have been laid out to the general public.
The arguments for and against Abortion is absurd, ridiculous and nothing more than other people wanting to force other people to live by their own subjective definition of morality. I call that pure unadulterated ego. Now this particular article can get extremely long considering the many factors involved. After everything is laid out and explained, I'm expecting some response. I only ask that you do keep it civil otherwise any comment posted will not be accepted. If you cannot discuss things rationally and calmly(no CAPS), then don't waste my time or your effort.
Argument (a): It's a human being. False. It is a human organism, which later develops into a human being. To call it a human being before it's actually a human being is absurd.
Argument (b): It's a human life form. True. A human organism is a human life form. Otherwise, it wouldn't be called a human organism. Humans don't reproduce anything but humans. However, there are "global" consequences in making Abortion illegal.
Argument (c): The child has rights. False. The so-called "rights" of the child is nothing more than Christian based Pro-Life BS. A human organism/fetus/baby/child, in the womb, if not viable(meaning it cannot live without assistance) isn't and shouldn't be given any rights. To do so, infringes upon the rights of the woman who is carrying and that's unacceptable. Equality and Equal Rights are the basis for America.
Argument (d): What about "rape" cases exceptions? False. Just more BS fed to the American public by both sides of the political spectrum. This is nothing more than a ruse for compromise, an attempt to strip you of your individual rights and has nothing to do with building a more civilized society as you are led to believe. You do not compromise equal rights. Favoring one over the other is discrimination and against the law. Besides, Abortion isn't the problem in this case. Rape is the problem.
Argument (e): Abortion is a social issue. False. Abortion isn't a social or societal issue. It's an individual issue. The Woman, herself has the responsibility in making the decision and her alone. Society has no right to dictate what decision she is to make. To do so is oppression in the most basic definition. In the cases of Rape? Address the Rape problem and leave the Abortion Law alone.
Argument (f): Abortion is murder. False. Abortion is a medical procedure which is given to a woman as an option. Yes, Abortion is going to cease the process of pregnancy, but it is not murder. Murder isn't Legal. Abortions exist because woman need them to be for equal rights and it's a medical procedure doctors know how to perform as a part of health services. And, if you really want to get into it, government shouldn't even have a Law about the Procedure itself because it is not a social or societal problem. It's an individual problem.
Argument (h): The child has no one to protect them. False. The woman is protected by Laws and there are even Laws in place to protect the fetus, should the mother decide to carry full term. The woman once she has made her decision, it's final. And there are Laws in place to restrict the time a woman has to make said decision, constantly held up by our sad Judicial system.
Conclusion: Abortion Isn't a Social or Societal Issue. Rape Is a Social and Societal Issue.
Okay, I've posted as many arguments as I could from experience and one part was left empty. What part? Earlier, I spoke about Global consequences. I was referencing making Abortions illegal on a Global scale would be absolutely detrimental.
Why? (a) food and water resources would be absorbed at a much higher rate if a woman is forced to carry full term, (b) health care resources would be absorbed at a much higher rate also, which would increase the cost of living for everyone because it would demand more health care workers, hospitals and other services, (c) the mental health of the woman who is being forced to carry full term, which can ruin any future the woman would have if allowed to abort an unwanted pregnancy, and (d) it would most likely create an abusive family relationship due to oppression, so more police would be required, more prisons would need to be built and at that point where would it stop? Answer: It wouldn't.
So, with all of that said, I appreciate your time and thank you for reading.
