Was in my clinical this week in training to be an NP. A woman came in, poor, dressed in raggedy clothes. We informed her of her positive pregnancy results. She became tearful, not happy about the news. Of course, the conversation ended up in discussion over “termination options.”
It was pitiful. She was sobbing, and highly upset with EITHER option. But since she is poor, unable to care for the child, in a non-caring, non-committed relationship, she likely was going to abort. She had missed ONE birth control pill the prior month. It happens — and it happens often. In her mind, she had tried to take responsibility for her choice, (at least this is what others tell her) yet it still failed.
Abortion is most cruel to poor women, who are given the choice of raising a child in poverty or eliminating the child, BECAUSE NO ONE IS GOING TO HELP THEM OUT. Abortion allows everyone off, scott free, except the child, of course, and the mother, who has to undergoe this potentially soul and physically scarring procedure.
I have to ask — how does this benefit women?? I thought women were supposed to be farther along now ...more advanced ...more saavy. I thought women were supposed to be liberated now, and free ...happier, endowed with riches and glory!
But they’re not. It’s a JOKE. I want to scream in their faces. It doesn’t benefit anyone but the money grubbing clinics who reap in the profits for it, the men who get to have their good time and walk away, the Democratic party, who received funneled funds through Planned Parenthood, and the rest of the liberal yuckety yucks who push this abomination like it’s the Holy Grail of all that great and good for women and all of society.
I feel the GREATEST deterrent to abortion in this case, would have been a man committed TO HER with the means to support a family — and her being MARRIED TO the man AND the two of them being open to children in their marriage. Where did our country go wrong that we have so little of this anymore? Men can’t work, can’t make a living, and don’t want to if they could. Adults can’t commit.
Birth control failed her and it always eventually does. The liberal’s answer is always more birth control ...but it FAILS and results in even more abortion, more poverty, more uncommitted men and women. And birth control is a business ...believe me. Never seen so many drug reps in my life, driving around pushing it, for profit.
A culture of life, marriage, committment, respect for life and family — THESE are the ONLY things that will reduce abortion rates in America. If ever. But as long as you have these options: birth control and abortion, people will continue to use them and avoid committments. Abortion begets more abortion. Abortion and birth control ...are big business.
the choice of raising a child in poverty
There is also the choice of adoption.
Seems to me that if you penalize partners that participate in this conseption, and do not support, or take responsibility/accountability for their actions, then I figure that of course would go a long way to keeping zippers zipped, and girls from accepting boys and men whose only goal is to get a little somefin’-somfin’, no matter what the consequenses are...
What are you in for???
“Ohh, I got this girl knocked-up, and I failed to help take care of the baby when it was born...”
That show on TV recently that was to illustrate the promescuity of ONE man (I use the term loosely), and having 11 children from several different partners, I forget which netwrk it ws to be shown...
But the backlash from before the show was even to be aired was enough to get the attention it didn’t want, and last I heard it was being shelved, not to be aired, as yet...
I stand to be corrected on that TV show, but that’s the best thing I had heard on this issue in a long time...
