I've just read the ridiculous from-the-perspective-of-a-foetus
text. It makes me angry.
It makes me angry because abortion is such a force for good (and not-bad), it's
unbelievable. Having a child is something that no-one should ever go
into with half a heart. You're toying with many many lives here, and if you can't
bring up that child well then you're introducing a hell of a lot of bad.
I can imagine pro-lifers with their mouth open wide now. How can I possibly claim
that abortion is a huge force for good?! Let me, instead, state why abortion
is not as bad as it is portrayed by these propaganda 'artists'.
The foetus is not human. It's not even remotely human until a long way into its
development. What's more, it's not concious until a way in either. It hasn't been
determined just how _far_ in it is, but estimates say not until the third trimester.
Without experiencing conciousness, it cannot have the thoughts it is given in the
"But it's going to be a human!". I know some of you think that's a good argument.
Every egg in a woman's ovaries has the potential to be human. Every month, another
one perishes. The only difference between an egg that's going to be human and one
that isn't is whether a sperm cell happens to turn up. The only difference between a
foetus that's going to be human and one that isn't is whether certain chemicals turn
The funny thing is, I'm not the ruthless bastard I make myself out to be in this
entry. I'm so angry because this misinformation wrecks people's lives. Having a child
at fourteen is bad for everyone involved (and the baby wouldn't have that great a
time of it either). I have persuaded a fourteen year old friend of mine to have an
abortion, so I'm not talking based just on theory here.
If you disagree with me. Please, comment. I would like this page to refute as many of
the pro-life arguments as possible.
Unless you're going to mention god, that is. If you use your god as a stick to
propaganda/influence people to not-abort, you're the epitome of what's wrong with
