Resource depletion and limited water are very real issues that would not be so pressing if we weren't overpopulated. If we don't take steps to limit the number of people we are not going to last.

They do have orphanages tho


We should work towards providing better avenues to adoptive services. Like I said on page 3, I fund adoptions and believe it or not, we make adopting children extremely difficult. Price tag wise and waiting time. Some people wait years. Our orphanages and such could use a hell of a lot better support too.

Well maybe it's better than these kids being raised by parents that probably ain't even together anyway (one night stand, etc). A bunch of trashy people like that shouldn't have kids, what kind of respect or morals will they teach? None obviously, which is why anytime you see a group of idiot kids, chances are their parents ain't together because they're also idiots.

Even with this said, I do think abortion is wrong (except in the cases of rape, then that is completely the choice of her). But that aside, maybe if these idiots would stop getting themselves pregnant there wouldn't be so many abortions.

An estimated 57.5 million babies in the U.S. have been aborted since 1973 (National Right to Life/Guttmacher Institute, Jan. 2015).


While I support your freedom of speech and respect your opinion, I have a very simple question for you:

Are you volunteering to support/foster/adopt these unborn children?

Abortion is rarely a simple choice, and it's not something done lightly. However despite your belief it's the choice of the mother to carry a fetus to term, and to weigh the consequences of doing so, economically and emotionally. Bluntly put, the only say the man has is at the time of conception, to take precautionary measures against same. The man isn't the one who gets to go through approximately nine months of increasing discomfort and misery, or to take the risk of potentially dying during childbirth (which does still happen despite modern medical techniques). The man is also the one most likely to shirk responsibility and leave the woman with all the responsibility for the newborn.

And what about women who are victims of rape and incest? Should they be required to be continuously reminded of the assailant? I admire the courage of women in that instance who do choose to carry the fetus to term, but I'm not about to condemn those who choose not to do so.

I have recently read of a case in Paraguay where a 10 year old child was raped and impregnated. The country is deeply religious, and despite recommendations by physicians and health organizations, she was required by law to bring the fetus to term.

So I ask you - how exactly is an 11 year old supposed to care for a child? What sort of future do both of them have?

In brief, the decision to abort a fetus is ultimately the woman's choice - not the man's, not yours, not mine, nor anyone else's.

I don't see abortion as murder. if a woman wants an abortion so be it, it's her body not ours and we should respect the women's choice especially the partner, spouse or one night stand.

I agree with that of course I think abortions should be paid for by the state and people given 500 dollars cash to get one. If 500 dollars is all it takes for you to get an abortion you probably shouldn't be raising children. Crime rates would likely fall considerably as well.

What the actual fuck.



Why don't you maybe, just maybe give people a condom and contraceptives. Abortions should not be used as a form of contraceptive. That's just negligent as fuck. To support that ill responsibility is stupid.

We shouldn't support people using abortion over simple contraceptive. Holy balls.

He has a point. At least at the end of the day he is his own man. There is a book in The Book called Revelation, it will explain that while you may not be seeing a lack of resources in the isle with the soda and potato chips it probably won't be far off. So we both can agree on that one right?

The way I see it is we have two choices.

1. We have safe legal abortions (Not Late term)
2. Women seek illegal and unsafe abortions from someone who may or may not be a doctor.

People need to learn that outlawing something doesn't always prevent it from happening. All too often the cause of a problem is not addressed. The goal should be to study the reasons why women seek abortions and develop ways to minimize the need for them. Access to contraception and better sex education are both good starts. Unfortunately I've seen many people who claim to be pro-life be against these things.

Contraceptives are all well and good but none are perfect or foolproof. We shouldn't encourage more idiots just popping out babies paying people cash if they decide to get an abortion would save the government money in the long run.
