desght, saying it is up to the parent... I think of it this way: Say a plane full of people crashes, and 70 people live and 10 people die. People might call it an "Act of God". What gives God the RIGHT to kill 70 people and let 10 people live, people might ask. How can such a God be just?
If you find THAT to be unjust, then how any less unjust is it to put the life (however early in development) of someone in the hands of their parent?
I've said my piece. Please don't drag me into this full force.
I agree with mech649's last comment. It is up to the parent. And there are people who grow up "tougher" in these environments. But that doesn't mean that these "tougher" people still don't have pain. For me, George Lopez comes to mind. Although the show was a comedy and not all things were taken seriously, the basic idea is common: he appears happy overall but not only does he have pain, he also has trouble in certain parts of his life, like expressing emotion for example. And there are plenty of people who don't grow up to be tougher, but rather with many mental issues. It all depends on personality.
I'm not saying that every kid needs to be aborted just because the parents aren't rich or geniuses. I'm saying that IF the parents want to have an abortion then let them, because it's better than the POSSIBILITY of the kid being forced to grow up in a bad, possibly abusive, environment.
their are a lot of babies that are born into rough and ghetto environments that grow up to become good people. poverty and drug addiction are experiences that many ppl have gone through and some would say that those experiences have made them tougher. i guess it also depends on where you live. poverty in canada isnt the same as poverty in india.
a baby grows a heart and brain around the 6th week of pregnancy. i don't think anyone can really put a finger on when a baby is conscious therefore i think its up to the mother to decide
"they can simply give it up for adoption" said by someone who clearly doesn't understand how many children go unadopted every year.
A child born to parents who would have terminated the pregnancy is statistically prone to dealing with poverty, drug addiction, etc. and for obvious reason.
a fetus before 20 weeks, hasn't developed consciousness. you have to decide at what point after conception does the fertilized egg become a human being. an ovum, undetectable by the human eye is not a human being. you might as well say a sperm cell is a human being
you basically predicted the whole kids future. isn't going through tough times part of life's experience? plus, i don't think you should kill a human being based off of your prediction about how the child's life will turn out.
and about to the parents who dont want the baby, they can simply give it up for adoption
But think about what could happen to the baby after its born. If the parents couldn't afford to take care of them, then the kid grows up poor, probably in a bad environment, with a lot less resources. Depending on his personality there's a good chance this could lead to depression or violence, or maybe both.
And if the parents simply don't want the child, there are plenty of parents out there who will make this completely obvious, sometimes to the point of abuse.
Or if the parents aren't ready mentally to raise a child, this could lead to less education in the home, the parents making selfish decisions rather than choosing what's best for the kid, and the kid growing up much more immature compared to his peers, leading to more bad decisions being likely occur.
I think its a matter of choosing the lesser of two evils. Why put the kid through years of these sort of things when you could take it out of its misery before its misery even begins?
the baby starts to grow a brain and a heart during its 5th week and abortions cant be done before that, therefore i personally believe that the time doesn't really make the abortion ok.
I do not agree with using abortions as a form of birth control, but I feel that there are valid reasons to get an abortion.
