I took this photo going to the doctor last week.
This guy is standing outside the office building and he goes, “Did you know that there is an abortion clinic in there?”
Sort of stating the obvious as a guy, I said, “Well I’m not going there!”
It was fascinating though watching this guy picketing with his sign, “Pray To End Abortion.”
And he’s standing in front of some spiffy signs advertising Fendi and Gucci.
Perhaps, he’s not understanding where some people come from and what they go through getting pregnant either not by choice (rape, incest, etc.) or they are not ready to properly care for a child or there is a clear and present danger to the health of the mother.
While late term abortions are completely anathema and in my mind really are murder, perhaps early term abortions, even if not a desired outcome by any means are at times a type of life-saving necessity for the reasons mentioned.
Unfortunately, I really don’t think it’s a simple either/or.
Yes, we must be pro life and protect the unborn children.
Yes, we must have some element of pro choice and protect the mother and the child when it’s birth would bring more harm than good.
The decision needs to be made case-by-case and are excruciating to decide and do the right thing for all.
