It’s come to my attention that I’m the underdog in the opinions about the abortion bills passed in North Dakota recently. When I say underdog, I don’t have any statistics to base that off of. I’m simply comparing my views to the majority of the views I see in my social media feed. If you know anything about me, you probably already know what I have to say about the topic.
It’s been a few weeks now and although the discussion has quieted down on Facebook and Twitter; the topic is still highly alive around the state and country. I have to first express a sigh of relief to myself. I’m used to facing controversy head on and throwing my opinion into the burning barrel like everyone else. People start to hate each other and everyone gets pissy and deletes half of their friends list for a few weeks. Believe it or not, I kept my mouth shut this time around. Not because I didn’t want to stand up for what I believe in but because many people are so arrogant and quite frankly I wasn’t up for a bitch-fest discussion.
I want to first clear the air and note that I fully respect that other people have opinions. Opinions are a very valuable thing in the world we live in. Without an opinion, you are invisible. Of course, I cherish my opinions and I usually feel very strongly about them. I do my research before I’m ready to state an opinion because I want to be able to back myself up and just like anyone else, you’ll probably die trying to change my thoughts. The thing is, even though I support differing opinions and I firmly stand my ground, you will not change me and I’m not about to change anyone myself. I simply want others to know my train of thought and accept that rather than throwing the name blame game card or being unreasonable derogatory just to get attention.
Now everyone knows the ins and outs of the legality of abortion. What is and what isn’t. Who decides and who cares about what. We all know this information so I’m not going to bother repeating it and bore you to death. The purpose of this post is to let you know in the simplest form how I feel about the topic. So, here it goes.
There are so many, SO MANY people in the country let alone world that can not conceive or have problems carrying babies to term. This is the baseline of why I can’t comprehend aborting a child. What are your reasons for aborting? Too much fun last month and you fucked up? What’s more fucked up is throwing a miracle down the drain.
Before you freak out, I want to mention that if a mothers life is in danger and/or there is a rape case in the hands of the topic than the entire situation is different and I truly can’t base a good opinion on that subject. As I have never been raped and I’ve never been in danger of my life, I can not honestly form a solid thought. I personally think that it would be a case by case basis.
Although I don’t know the numbers on rape verses just not wanting a baby; I wouldn’t think that the ratio is that close. In assuming which is a terrible thing to do; I’d assume that a larger majority of abortions are done because the baby is just plain not wanted. That’s a rotten excuse to kill.
What it comes down to is that I personally have always wanted to be a “mommy.” I’ve wanted to be a mother since I was a little girl and as I get older and want a family more and more every day, I couldn’t fathom getting pregnant and not wanting it. I don’t care if you are 17 at prom, 20 at a college party, or 32 and successful; abortion shouldn’t be the solution to your problem.
What’s wrong with adoption? Are you afraid you’ll get fat? Get over it. I have zero empathy for women that have had abortions and suffer from depression after the fact. You chose to end that life. You chose it, so you have no right to cry about it.
In conclusion, I’m not here for an argument or discussion on the topic. This is my opinion and you have the right to respect it or not respect it but just know that if you can’t value that someone has a differing opinion than yours than don’t bother getting upset when someone goes postal on your ass for supporting something so inhumane.
