America’s Overly Tolerant Nature when it comes to abortion

Why do we separate the killing of the unborn from any other killing of the innocent? What about a Women's Rights! This article will explore those issues!

Is there such a thing as being too tolerant?

It has always amazed me that our society uses the argument of women’s’ rights when it comes to the issue of abortion. To me that is like saying that because we as Americans are so afraid that women will be offended that we must allow the Women’s Rights Movement to twist our arms and promote the killing of the unborn. Another thing that truly bothers me is the Women’s Rights Movement uses the killing of the unborn to defend their idea that they have a right to do what they want with their own bodies. Hay ladies! We are not talking about changing your hair color or walking around nude here! We are talking about the killing of a human life!! News flash! That fetus growing inside of the pregnant woman is a separate and very unique human being! It may have gotten its DNA from the mother and the father but it is still is a totally separate human being!

Not only that, but, even during supervised abortions in state of the ark clinics in this day and age there is still much risk for a woman having an abortion! What about the rights of a woman to be informed as to what those risks are? Those rights are missing in most clinics today! Doctors simply want to make money and really do not care about the pregnant woman seeking an abortion and these woman many times are treated with disrespect! You can't have it both ways!!

Do I believe this way because I am a Christian?

Since I cannot remember a time that I was not a Christian I guess this is hard to answer precisely. I do not wish to preach to you this time because I don’t need to, due to the fact that evidence in support of pro life is abundantly profound. With all the research and scientific evidence that human life begins the moment the fetus attaches itself to the uterus it is implausible to believe otherwise. In fact, there are many very educated Atheists who also very firmly believe in pro-life.

Yes!! Pro-life is not just for Christian's anymore!!

What about arranged marriages, rape or incest?

Adoption is still the most humane and practical option!! Many of our grandparents were brought into this world as a result of what would be called rape or even incest in this day and age! So in essence if abortion were allowed way back then many of us would not be here! Only 100 years ago women had no say as to who they were given to in marriage, and, they were told that it was their duty to tolerate sex from a man they very well may despise. Many talked themselves into loving their husbands resulting from the arranged marriage, and, I am sure that many did end up falling in love. I too had an arranged marriage in which I tolerated much abuse.

That being said; still and all there are many couples who cannot have children but due to abortion being so prevalent they must wait years before a newborn is available.

Japan's two children per family policy

Japan’s two child philosophy strictly imposed by their government has come back to haunt them! A toy company in Japan is offering its employees $10,000 for every baby born after their second child.

My own experiences with abuse and date rape

I have experienced physical abuse from two of my former husbands. I also was taken advantage of by an older man when I was still a virgin and right out of high school. When I found out I was pregnant I could have gotten an abortion by using the excuse of date rape. However, that thought never crossed my mind. I felt so ashamed and alone that I wanted to die.

I ended up getting married to my high school sweet heart and moving away from my small town of Sandusky because I felt like I had disgraced my family. In today’s society having a child out of wedlock is not treated like it was in the 60’s when I was pregnant with my first son. He went on to be a very loving, intelligent, kind young man and today he is a nurse. I was thinking of giving him up for adoption but my family talked me out of it. I am glad I did not because he is a true blessing and a great deal of joy to the entire family! Not only that but he too suffered much abuse but found it in his heart to forgive his abuser! I believe that God has a real purpose for him in this life!!

Many actors, actresses and people from all walks of life have been born as the result of rape! They were obviously either adopted of kept by their mothers. Yet in doing so they were given an opportunity to contribute to society. Many after finding out that they were born as a result of rape have openly thanked their mothers for not aborting them.

What about over population

Our world has been so obsessed with over population that we have gone overboard. I know that the numbers seem like we are having too many babies but those numbers are largely due to the aging population and the immigrants. If it were not for immigrants we would be in trouble. I did some research and found out that there is a significant decline in the birthrate worldwide. When you add all the wars that are taking our young folk along with the new diseases that are expected to take their toll; we could be in serious trouble.

Even if we are overpopulated due to more babies being born in some under developed counties like Mexico that is still not an excuse for abortion. In fact, Scientist are exploring ways to inhabit space as well as making floating colonies over the ocean!

Abortion has allowed our young people to get the idea that human life is not to be valued. It makes them feel that even they are worthless. Especially in our Godless society where many believe they have no value whatsoever. This is one of the reasons why so many teenagers commit suicide.

Physician Ron Paul- Quote from his Web Site

“He has delivered more than 4,000 babies. He believes that human life starts at conception, and that casual elimination of the unborn leads to a careless attitude towards all life.”

Recalling his personal observation of a late-term abortion performed by one of his instructors during his medical residency, Ron Paul stated, “It was pretty dramatic for me to see a two-and-a-half-pound baby taken out crying and breathing and put in a bucket.”

Are we Using Abortion as another method of Birth Control?

With abortion at the rate of 4000 a day it does not take Rocket Science to realize that we as a society are being very irresponsible and in fact we are using abortion as a means of birth control. People do not like to use condoms because they subdue the pleasure so instead they figure if all other means of birth control fail they can always abort. What is wrong with our society? Have we become so spoiled and such pleasure seekers that we see the need to kill the innocent just so that we can a few seconds of pleasure!!

Well guess what Americans!! Your fun will soon come to a screeching halt when due to the fact that we are so preoccupied with fun and our addiction to material possessions that we are taken over taken by China!! I will leave that topic for another article.

The lazy American

We are so lazy that we don’t realize that there are so many other things besides sex (along with its many perversions) that can bring us unspeakable pleasure!
1. Giving to others (not sex) is the most rewarding and fulfilling experience a person can have.
2. Receiving love and appreciation for doing deeds of kindness is extremely rewarding. http://westsidetoastmasters.com/resources/laws_persuasion/chap12.html
3. Learning new things! There is nothing like learning something new to make a person feel more self confident and valued.
4. Abstaining from sex until marriage. This is an old fashioned value and one that will probably have you dismissing this article all together. However, there is so much joy and value in abstaining from sex until marriage that it will take another article to get to it all. Abstaining from sex until marriage will alleviate the jealousy that ends up breaking apart many marriages. It also makes sex much more rewarding and teaches us the joy of self respect.
5. Physical fitness and sports!! We as Americans spend too much time watching other people doing things on TV. We need to get more involved ourselves and not just be spectators all the time.
6. Finding a fulfilling hobby!! Camping, fishing, hunting, cooking, writing, reading, ping pong, playing pool in your own basement, painting a picture, music, learning a musical instrument, etc.!! The list of fulfilling hobbies goes on a on to infinity!
7. Enjoying your family!! To me nothing is more enjoyable then getting together with family and or your extended family of friends. When I get together with my children and grand children I feel higher than a kite! This is one of those natural and very rewarding types of highs!

We love to sit around the camp fire and talk about everything and anything! The one thing that gives me the most joy is the expertise with which my boys are able to do impressions of a certain celebratory or other characters. They are spot on and truly belong in the movies!!
8. Enjoying movies as a family with lots of pop corn hugs and kisses!
9. Traveling!!
10. Last but so very not least everyone can have a very unique day to day relationship with our living and loving God! There is no greater joy than this! So why did I not put this first? Well, I promised that I would not preach this time!!

In conclusion! As human beings we have unlimited avenues of things that we can do to find fulfillment, pleasure and ecstasy other then the perverted pleasure of exploiting another human being by using them for sex. We as a society have strayed too far from basics and that is why we find it so hard to enjoy life.

The best answer to abortion is to encourage women to use birth control.
When we talk about over population we must look at the world, which now has over 7 billion people, more than double of what it had when you and I were young, and yes this is mostly due to us living longer but unless we want to cut our lifespans short the best way to control population growth is to have smaller families. The governments do not want this, they are greedy and want more tax payers even if it means we will one day be living in conditions similar to what is in India now due to over population there.

Thank you for quick moderation! Teaching abstinence is still the best solution, and, of course birth control which many don't use because they feel they can just get abortions! The links I have provided tell the real truth about how young people in our country use abortion for birth control. I agree to disagree with you!!

I had no problem when I was in India when I said that I was a virgin at the age of 21 but the minute I moved to the UK, I was asked to do a cervical smear test, test for chlamydia and other STD which I found unnecessary and refused to do it and they refused to believe I was a virgin. Just told the doctor I wouldn't disappoint her and would come back for birth control later if and when I decided to get married. Well I did go back to pick up birth control in in November 2001 as I got married in December and then again January (three times to the same person) and put a smile on the doctors' face. I went back on the pill soon after the birth of my child to make sure I never got scrapped within. Never drink, but I had touched them for a taste but with family around. First drink at the age of 30, stopped before the age of 31 too as I knew it wasn't me.
With regard to the USA, there are certain parts of the country that have their own abortion laws and there is a lot of outcry regarding this.
I truly believe that if you play you pay the thing to do is to learn what you want in life. Personally I am now a married single (husband abandoned) but not looking and have the control and the power to say no to men as its my choice to govern who comes in and who goes out in my life. If they cannot control their urges and don't want a baby, give them the pain of birth and take the child away for adoption, I would love to have more kids but cannot have them. The power of conjugal unions lies with the woman and if a man forces himself on her its call rape upon penetration and attempt of rape minus penetration.
Its not just the Americas, UK has them too, I met a girl who was 11 with child out there and here in New Zealand had a 13 year old pregnant teen and the mother laughing like a jackass that her daughter got knocked up. I was sitting with that one at 38 weeks of gestation and told the mother good luck and walked away.
America you pay for your treatment and C sections cost about 50k too and its free in NZ if you are a resident or a citizen. UK NHS card holder.

Abortion is the act of killing an unborn child and it happens too often. It is a senseless act. Adoption is the loving option.

Oh Judy, I was reading your wonderful post with rapt attention when your concluding link to my article just floored me! I thought I didn't belong in here as I was reading such a passionate and eloquent plea. Thanks dear friend, I endorse your view and give my take.

I believe we take birth to someone here and to take human birth does not come easy! As I have written elsewhere, the real meaning who we really are is beyond us in our present state of being but will reveal itself when we shed our outer covering. We are born when the fetus is formed that has feelings and dreams. Imagine then the cruelty of abortion for whatever reasons! I also believe real justice will be delivered not here. For me, I can never imagine being part of an abortion. In fact, even thoughts that are negative have become repugnant to me the moment it starts forming.

Your article is what the doctor prescribed for a wholesome and shared life that can only lead to bliss. Abortion is abhorrent by any yardstick and has nothing to do with our belifes. It is gross cruelty perpetrated knowingly and against all norms of justice - siva

Why and what of abortion
A few points I’d like to clarify to clear lurking doubts across the globe. To have sex or not to have ,is ones choice Willingness is must, lest you rape even your own wife when she says no . Also denial of sex when married i.e. having no conjugal relations with the spouse, is enough ground for divorce. If you don't need sex, man does else he will suffer from prostate problems and finally maybe cancer. Also women must note that having tasted sex, early in life, then being denied the same for whatever reason, finally does and may turn to cancer of the cervix or ovaries or any sexual organs, uterus etc .So to decide sexual course of action is absolutely ones prerogative yes, but insensibility can't be denied or pardoned or condoned
A word about abortion...
It is once again the privilege of a woman to conceive or not. She may be on pills or ensure use of condoms during sexual intercourse, in case she desires to avoid childbirth. But women must know that bearing children when married in the East and even unmarried in the West during early age, is good both for the woman and child, after the basic honey -moon enjoyment period. But in any case it’s best to conceive and deliver before 35 years of age. Now once a woman conceives ant whatever age she may then be, the child should be permitted to arrive. Tampering with the inner sexual organs may be detrimental to the woman. But if the child has been conceived, it is the moral obligation of both parents /couple to let the birth take place. It is only here that law may so be enforced. In case the woman wants a particular sex of a child then maybe the second time she conceives, this right of ultra sound knowledge may be permitted legally. Abortion amounts to death of a living being, at whatever stage it maybe and the woman alone should be held responsible for this act of lawful breach against nature. That much said no amount of abortions will have any effect on world population which is otherwise soaring owing to many other factors. A few abortions are not going to make any difference. The whole and sole responsibility to thus conceive or abort if I may say, murder, should be solely upon the woman’s shoulders.
These points raised by me are as a consequence of my study of the Human Mind, across the cross section of societies, both Eastern and Western, over many decades. If you appreciate these views, then please do share with your friends across the internet. A simple comment from you will add a 1/1000 cent for me and all my money earned here, shall go to the Cancer Society .Hopefully when I am no more, perhaps in less than a decade from now ,if I am still read, I may get a 100 pounds or so ,which maybe just a drop in the ocean, but will be a drop at least ,none the less…

Such a brave and beautiful article, Judy. This is the one thing I feel passionate about but could never write an article about because I am a man and feel it is a women's issue to be discusssed among women. I feel as long as it is legal, the father of aborted children should be made to have a vasectomy, if men are going to act like a dirty dog, they should be treated as such (no offense to dogs). That would greatly reduce the murder of unborn babies for sure. Congratulations (though I was surprised) on a well deserved Star.

There is no secret that I am against abortions, as I have stated this. I remember a friend of mine (we had children the same age) and I was faced with, do we give our daughters birth control or not, they were 17. I had a long talk with my daughter and then we went to the doctor and we discussed it with her, we all decided to place her on birth control. I have always preached to my kids to wait until marriage but, teens at times can be just that, teens. My friend decided if she did talk to her daughter about it, then she then thought she was giving her daughter permission to have sex, of course I disagreed with her. As you might be thinking, yes her daughter did get pregnant and she had an abortion. My daughter is now 27, married and has yet to be pregnant, they plan on trying in the next few years though. My point is, we must be realistic, we must protect our children and if any woman can prevent getting pregnant when they do not want to be, is the right thing to do. Abortion is not the answer, it not only kills a child but, it also bruises the soul of those that have had one. After the fact, I have held the hand of a friend that had an abortion, I would not go with her to have it, as I was against it but, after another friend had taken her and dropped her back off at my home, I had to help her, she still cries to this day over that time in her life, 30 years ago. A well written page my friend. Bless you for having the courage to take it straight on. The star is well deserved. As always, thank you for sharing.:)

Our mothers are the most tolerant of all, if we consider the child's birth .... and their endurance during this period. From the start they borne the pain,, and when live,,, and till death... form of paid is different.
Again when we focus on our own country they sufferings are different.... more psyco-physic than external ones that developed world have!

Thank you for your comment Md Rezaul Karim. I do understand that there are times when abortion takes place to save the mother's life. A teenager should avoid sex like the plague because her body is not fully developed and childbirth is very dangerous. However, many in the US are using abortion as a means to have unprotected sex and use others just for sex. With almost 3 million abortions in the US a year, we know that all of them are not performed as the result of rape or to save the mother's life, especially partial birth abortions where the viable baby is halfway delivered and then killed by the doctor before it is outside the mother's body so that it can be categorized as an abortion..
