GOAL: To Raise Awareness On Abortion and It's Harmful Effects On Our Country

Some Babies Die by Chance. No Baby Should Die by Choice

A topic that has been very important and concerns me is abortion. Abortion is a medical procedure which ends a pregnancy. Abortion can happen naturally, it’s known as a miscarriage or spontaneous abortion. Abortion can also be induced by controlled medical treatment or even illegal homemade, back-street procedures. However, millions upon millions of American tax dollars are paying for the countless abortions that happen in the United States every year. Clinics like Planned Parenthood are handing out abortions like candy to women who believe they are not ready for a child in their life. Abortion is one of the most selfish decisions any woman could make. This blog is devoted to the effects abortion has had on our country and our society as a whole.


“If we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people to not kill each other? Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want.”
-Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Women Who Go Through With Abortion Find That Abortion Itself is the Real Re-victimization

The reason why I believe many Americans are Pro-Choice is the possibility of a woman getting pregnant through rape or incest. Before I go any further into this posting I would like to show my respect for the women who have had to go through the horribly painful experience of rape. Regardless of the rape resulting in pregnancy, abortion, or if the victim was fortunate enough not to conceive- my respect goes out to you.

American women today are very much abusing abortions because these women are being irresponsible when it comes to their sex life.
The majority of abortions are performed because the child is unwanted.

Here are some facts that are really worth reading provided by The Alan Guttmacher Institute and Planned Parenthood's Family Planning Perspectives:
  • Approximately 1.3 million abortions happen every year in the United States. 115,000 per day.
  • 52% of women receiving abortions in the U.S. are younger than 25: Women ages 20-24 receive 32% of all abortions; Teenagers receive 20% and girls younger than 15 account for 1.2%.
  • 1% of all abortions are obtained because of rape or incest; 6% of abortions are obtained because of potential health problems regarding either the mother or child, and 93% of all abortions are obtained for social reasons (i.e. the child is unwanted or inconvenient).

Where Do YOU Stand?
Being pro-life or pro-choice often depends on what political party you belong to, but doesn't need to justify your opinion. More conservatives/republicans are pro-life and more liberal/democrats are pro-choice.
I am Pro-Life:
I believe...
An unborn child is human. Life begins at the moment of conception. Abortion is not safe. The government should not fund abortions.

I am Pro-Choice:
I believe...
The fetus is not a human, it is just a mass of tissue. Abortion is safe. The number of abortions are relatively small. A woman should be able to control her own body.

Let's Kill Two Birds With One Stone...
If It's Not a Baby- You're Not Pregnant
It's very frustrating when in discussion on abortion when someone claims a fetus is not living or a human.WHAT THE HECK?!
Here are some educational and medically correct facts about pregnancy development:-3 weeks, the brain has 2 lobes-4 weeks, the heart begins to beat -7 weeks, the brain and nerves work together-9 weeks, *more than 90% of all body structures found in a full grown human are present*-10 weeks, the entire body receives blood from the heart -12 weeks, electrical signals from the nervous system are measurable- aborted babies are often removed from the womb while sucking their thumb. 89% of abortions take place within the first 12 weeks.

Why Risk Your Life...To End One?It's also very sad to hear that many woman receive abortions because they are not ready for a child in their life. They believe that they can not financially or socially accept the situation into their lives. These women also had no clue how dangerous and even life threatening abortion procedures can be.The Blackmun Wall- a list of women who have died from legal abortions and their circumstances for death. the list is 347 women long.Other than the risk of death, abortions can create very troubling medical problems such as heavy bleeding, infection, incomplete abortion, anesthesia complications, scarring/perforation of the uterine lining/uterus, and even damage to the internal organs.

Roe v. Wade: Where Abortion became VERY Political...

Jane Roe v. Dallas District Attorney Henry Wade, Jan. 22, 1973: Declared that the 14th Amendment guarantees a woman's "right to privacy"; held that the fetus is not a person and the decision to abort should be left up to a woman and her doctor.

In America's early years, abortion was seen as extremely negative. In many cases abortion was seen as an attack on human life. It's unbelievable that these morals have slipped into what is considered normal today- that abortion is OKAY.Even Norma McCorvey, the "Roe" in Roe v. Wade, once she went through with her abortion- knew what she did was wrong. According to California Right to Life, Norma believes that it's safe to say that the entire abortion industry is based on a lie and that she is dedicated to spending the rest of her life to undo the law that bears her name.

Planned Parenthood: Then and Now
The Control of Female Fertility
Founded by Margret Sanger 1916.

P.P. provides contraception and other health services to women and men,

funds research on birth control, and educates specialists and the public about the results

advances access to family planning in the United States and around the world.

When I hear Margret Sanger and Planned Parenthood, there is a part of me that nods my head in agreement, but then I am baffled by what her work has lead to today. This woman created contraceptives, such as the pill, to prevent people who were not "fit" enough to raise children from getting pregnant. To purify America into a white supremacist country? Most people assume so, due to the fact that she spoke at a KKK meeting. Even though she claimed the meeting seemed strange and unusual, I don't know why she even went there in the first place. I'm sure anyone who attends let alone makes a speech at a KKK meeting has an agenda. I still believe that purification is the reason she came up with the idea of a contraceptive. Regardless of what was said by Sanger, people can interpret her words in different ways. Weather she was referring to the disabled and blacks or the human race as a whole- she created a great way to have a safe sexual life that wouldn't result in a pregnancy. I 100% agree with contraceptives that happen before pregnancy, however abortion does not fall into the category of contraception...obviously.

Today, Planned Parenthood not only provides contraceptives, but more popularly provides abortions to thousands of women who are unable to pay for them. This is where my respect for Planned Parenthood goes out the window. Planned Parenthood should not fund ending a family, where they pledge to advance access to family planning in the United States. I didn't notice that killing a family member would make the "family" better off. It is also a responsibility issue, take responsibility for your actions and deal with them in a humane manner. Not to mention the enormous number of tax dollars being spent on killing children

Let's Talk About Tax, Baby...

Regardless of your religion or morals. YOU support Planned Parenthood and YOU support abortion.

Honestly, I could care less about where you stand as a religious person. I'm sure everyone who read this blog was assuming that I was a radical right wing Christian girl. Well, anyone who had those thoughts can end them now. I am in the process of accepting Buddhism in my life, which might explain why I feel we should all cherish our lives and the lives around us. Even then, politically I stand as a Libertarian- Limited Government for Maximum freedom...Now, don't say I'm a hypocrite when I want the government to make abortions illegal. Just don't use my tax dollars to fund them, please. Funding death shouldn't be a part of anyone's political or religious views, it's just morbid.

For six years now, the government has been funding abortion organizations. It shouldn't be a shock to know that you, the tax payer, are the largest contributor to Planned Parenthood, the nations largest abortion organization. The more money PP receives the more abortions are happening on average everyday.

An Option
Adoption is a selfless way of accepting pregnancy. If a birth mother takes time to seek out a suitable adoptive mother, there should be no reason a women needs to go through an abortion procedure. There are thousands of women and men who are sterile, unable to have children, and are searching for children to care for and raise as their own.
Both of my grandmothers and my father were all adopted into the families that I call my own. If it were not for all of their birth mothers choosing adoption in order to keep the potential lives of who are now my grandmothers and my own father- I would not be here today. I warmly congratulate anyone who is brave enough to go through pregnancy and gave their child a chance at life.
This Isn't a "Goodbye", It's Just a "See You Later"...

In many cases, such as my own fathers, where a child searches for their birth mother- or vise-versa. On many occasions, unfortunately not so much with my father, but in any case the family will be reunited. My father's birth mother was found and they met once, and agreed to live life as they were- with their own families. He thanked her for his life as she thanked my father's adoptive parents for allowing to live her life without committing murder.
