Learn Why Abortion Isn't a Social Issue- It's Political BS

by Cagsil

The abortion debate that continues in America is nothing more than Bullshit perpetuated by politicians in order to divide citizens on specific issues.

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.

Why Abortion Shouldn't Be An Issue

Welcome Citizen,

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.

Thank you Sara. I appreciate you taking time to read my article. Your comment made sense and I'm glad you enjoyed the article as well. Abortion is an individual problem, not a social problem. Not to mention, the rape issue very few people even mention. It is always about restricting the decisions a woman can make and not truly addressing issues at hand. Again, thank you and yes I shall keep writing.

This is the most powerful article I've read in a long time about this topic.
The fact that you went our own way to show how it is not. Social issue but political BS is amazing.
So many answers here do I agree with!!!
I'm glad there are still straight minded people, meaning people who actually think about the rights of others as that persons rights and not their own.

(If none of that makes sense I apologize. I am not very good with words and describing what I mean)

OVERALL loved it. Keep writing.

Thank you for the comment. However, the underlining point, which you missed? Abortion isn't a social issue. It is between the doctors and parents. Other people aren't to interject their opinion(as you put it) into it regardless, to serve their own supposed moral superiority.

While I agree with most of your points, they are opinion only, and neither yours nor mine is superior to any other opinion. Consider Argument (a); "human being" is a socially defined quality, not a biological one, and you have defined a fetus as non-human, with an aside that anything else is absurd. But that isn't the only definition; I've seen it range from a fertilized egg to one attached to the uterine wall to having a heart beat or brain waves all the way up to filling it's lungs with air the first time.

So those that define a fertilized egg as a person have a moral imperative, to save that human being, that person, from a biological mother that would kill it (not "murder" for that term is defined by law and abortion is not murder under the law). And yes, the person living in the womb has the same (ethically speaking) rights that you and I do - all people do. Neither it's habitat nor location can take that from it.

The real argument isn't abortion, then, it is "What is a human being, or person?", and just who gets to decide that question for everyone. Until we all figure that out - that we're arguing about the wrong thing - the debate will continue unabated for few people will even acknowledge that there is any other possibility than their own definition (because anything else is absurd?). Best to turn your attention into convincing others that a single biological cell is not a person, with reasons to support your opinion. While your article is well written, it can only convince those that already agree.

Some things to think about: that zygote is the result of the human reproductive process and thus it can only be human as biologically there is no alternative. It has human DNA; it has to be human. It is as much human being as a child that has not yet developed teeth or even a developed prefrontal cortex. To choose any other point in development is completely arbitrary; it must be human.

(And yes, I agree that a 3 month fetus is not a human being.)

I'm glad to see you on this particular page. Abortion has always been one of the most disruptive topics and that's mostly because others want so badly to interfere into someone else's life. I recently created many different quotes for Cagsil's work. And one of those quotes goes like this-> You getting involved in someone else's life via gov, only proves you have no clue where lines are drawn w/regards to rights. Thank you kindly for leaving a comment and reading.

I could not agree more, other people feel they have the right to dictate how everyone should live. We all operate on different levels of discernment and are well within our rights to live our lives within the realm of our comfort zone....

Thank you. Much appreciated. I am grateful you shared it also. :)

Excellent article. I shared it.

Thank you Cherlyas well for commenting on my article. I appreciate you taking the time. Don't expect any political groups or position to keep another inline. It just isn't going to happen.

I appreciate this article. It's so important that our society decease from this incessant right wing religion Forced Birth agenda. Birth Control Pills gave me severe debilitating migraines. IUD's gave me two episodes of severe pelvic inflammatory disease. There is no 100% birth control. I used cervix muscous fertility awareness method and consciously conceived two children when employed married and settled. I am not shamed by the three abortions - 5, 6 and 7 week blobs - that postponed my motherhood until our marriage and foundations were stable.

I imagine in some far distant tribal time men did not have unprotected intercourse wiht females unless they'd brought a gazell or something to her father and could support a child.

Sex does cause reproduction. It is not possible - now - to separate the two.

Ithink that part of the solution is female ability to say, "No" to penis in vagina. Most women on the planet have no right to say no to unprotected intercourse. And, birth control is non existent, unaffordable or scarce.

The more girls are educated, marriage delayed, and their rights as human beings recognized society will be helped to flourish.

Fundamentalists in every religion have got to Go Away. Why don't the moderates help keep the fundamentalist extremists in line?
