On “The Beauty of Choice”

4 Dec

I chose this blog because the discussion on abortion never gets old, the arguments never really die down. There will always be someone who is “Pro-Life” and someone who is “Pro-Choice.”

This post opened up my eyes to the Pro Choice perspective. I recently engaged in an argument with someone over abortion. I told them “I don’t believe in abortion.” He responded that, “abortion isn’t a belief, it isn’t like religion … it’s not supposed to be something you believe in.” Now this statement caught me a bit off guard. Do people really feel this way?

I feel like abortion can be something you can have or not have a belief in. Everyone values everything differently and we may say we believe in something other people may not even think should be considered a belief.

In aspects to abortion I just believe that we all want a fair world. We don’t want to murder innocent children who aren’t yet born. But we don’t want rape victims to have to have a baby they didn’t plan for. We don’t want a baby born into a house where it isn’t wanted, where it’ll be mistreated and abused. We just want the world to be fair and a better place. So I agree that no one honestly enjoys an abortion. So if someone is Pro Life or Pro Choice … they are still dreaming of a fair world on the inside.

    Abortion is such a sensitive topic but I agree with you that it is a belief in which if you believe in abortion or not. To some abortion is a word and topic that is unheard of and don’t want to ever see it as an option. To others it is a possibility. Who is to judge someone’s opinion? I agree that in the end, both sides just want to be fair.

    Abortion is a very delicate issue to deal with, and you are right, It’s never going to die down. But I feel like abortion is a choice and sometimes it’s necessary. I think it really comes down to just the situation and whether or not the woman wants to have a baby.

    This is a really well written, inspiring post — your ideas about both sides wanting the same thing in the end contributes something valuable to the discussion. I think it is perhaps one thing both sides can agree on.
