Abortion is one topic where ideological axiomatic differences prevent compromise. If one fundamentally believes that life begins at conception, then there is no room to support abortion; however, if one views an unborn fetus as a clump of cells rather than a life, very different conclusions can be made. I am 100% pro-life, except for when the mother’s life is at risk. Poor socio-economic conditions of perspective parents is also not justification for abortion
We must do more than just fight to overturn Roe vs. Wade. We must hear, be sympathetic, and provide choices (adoption) beyond abortion to those contemplating such action. Providing love, education, support, and resources will go much further towards saving not just the lives of children, but also alleviating the torment and guilt that can afflict those who have gone through with an abortion.
I also think it’s important that society view abortion as not just a woman’s issue. I want us to become a society that values life, and at a local level a society where the community supports new parents and young children.
