What does “being human” actually mean? Does it mean having a heart beating to live? Does it mean taking care of your brothers and sisters? Does it mean falling in love, having a family, having children? Does it mean taking care of our mothers and fathers? We all love, we all care and we were all meant to be loved. We love our cats and dogs and make sure that abandoned puppies and kittens are taken care of and not abused. Then do we believe that abortion is a good/necessary thing?
As an adult and a mother of teenage daughters, I believe in birth control. I also believe in abstinence until one is ready, but if a young woman gets pregnant it is never accidental unless it’s rape. In that instance, I understand the reasons why some will do what they believe they have to do. Because of this, I also believe that Roe vs. Wade should not be done away with and that a woman should be able to decide what to do with her body and her pregnancy—but I also believe they need to be well educated and not misled.
That being said, it was very difficult to watch an undercover video by Live Action and reading the article from 2013.
How can one tell someone with a straight face that a fetus at 23 weeks is not a human being and does not look like a baby? There are cases of extreme genetic defects in which there may be no recourse other than to have a late term abortion to try and save the mother, but what mother would want to live when the choice is that her baby perishes?
The lies told to the woman in the Live Action video is that her child is “not a baby”. Where is the education? Where are the fundamentals of what makes a human?
Maybe some humans are monsters.
As always, this subject makes me think back to the choices my mother made to have me, as well as the choice that she didn’t have when she had to undergo a forced abortion for my brother or sister whom I will never meet.
It’s a difficult video to watch, but please do so.
