The Truth By the Numbers by Lipizzaner-Kgirl The Truth By the Numbers by Lipizzaner-Kgirl

AAvailable for free use, just don't claim it as your own, obviously. ;) (Wink) Please remember that this stamp is just a simple fact about the actions that lead to abortion. Everyone is free to have your own personal opinion.

Rape and incest (combined) contribute fewer than 1% of all abortions performed yearly. (The actual survey statistic is 0.3%, but as rape is sometimes unreported, it's safer to raise the number.) Only around 5% of all abortions are done to save the mother's life. That means that 99% of abortions are done after consensual sex, and 93% - 94% are done for convenience alone. Also, only around 51% - 52% of all women who obtain abortions report using birth control during the month leading up to pregnancy.

 

This figure is easily found in multiple places and forms of sources when researched. A few such sources are these (please note that I have used a number of types of sources):

So basically what this is saying is you'd rather have babies be born to parents or parents who don't want them or aren't ready?  And regardless whether the fetus isn't the mothers body, she is holding it and creating it and nurturing it so she has the right to abort if she wants too. Most ( I'd like to hope all in a sense of just not doing it to do it ) people get abortions because they don't want or cant take care of a offspring and while adoption is an option, they wont give that option to everyone. So wouldn't it be safer to not have a baby be born in a bad upbringing from neglecting parents then to not even give it the option to even be thought of that way.

Uhm I know the process of adoption and it kinda isn't. Actually they will deny some to even set there kids up for adoption and it's sad but true. AND it is obvious that not all kids get adopted so that's a point to look at too.

If you want to put your kid up for adoption, all you have to do is leave it at a fire station.

I know not all kids get adopted. That's why there is foster care. I, for one, plan to adopt.

Safe Havens are you serious. Some people don't like the idea of leaving a baby like that which is why they abort before it is conscious and living. You must not know that just because someone cant take care of a baby doesn't mean they don't want one, giving up a baby for most people is very saddening and depressing so they decide to not go through that process in the first place

You can bring your baby to a police or fire station and leave it there with the officers and they'll put him or her into the foster care system until he or she is adopted. You don't leave the kid in a bundle on the doorstep all alone for the night if that's what you're wondering! There are officers there who are trained to help you and the child. Adoption is open to everyone. Either way, if you leave your baby neglected somewhere, DSS will take it away from you, so no, if you really can't raise the kid or really don't want it, you don't have to keep it. www.adoption.org/adopt/putting…  www.adopthelp.com/baby-up-for-…

"They don't want to leave their child so they abort it." How is giving a child life and then giving it to someone else worse than just killing it altogether and never giving it a chance? Yes, you may get attached to the baby after carrying him for nine months, but no one is forcing you to adopt him out. As the biological parent, you have the final say (unless you abuse the child, of course, and then DSS will take him away for his own good). Adoption may seem harder in the here-and-now, but post-abortion regret is exponentially harder to deal with than wondering "what does my kid look like now?" And besides, if you choose an open adoption, you can visit your child as often as you like!


And yes, it is living from the start. If it were not living it would not be growing. The child being unconscious is a weak argument as well, as it's still considered murder to kill a human outside the womb even if they are unconscious. Being tucked away out of sight makes no difference.

But there's a difference from knowing you exist and not.
Abortion is here for a reason. And again the whole open adoption is not an option for everyone.
And foster cares aren't lollipops and unicorns, there are some that are very foul and depressing.

The difference doesn't matter. They are still human, and, if given a chance, will become aware that they exist. Orcas and elephants are aware that they exist and it's not murder to kill them. Sentience is not part of the equation of whether something is murder or not. The only thing in question is whether or not it's okay to kill humans based on their physical development.

Where are you getting your information about adoption? It's just plain wrong. Open adoption is open for everyone who puts their child up for adoption. www.adoptionhelp.org/open-adop… , adoption.about.com/od/parentin… . The only cases where open adoption is not allowed are cases where the biological parent(s) is abusive to the child.

There are a few foster care parents that are irresponsible and/or abusive, but the system quickly finds them and weeds them out, just like with adoptive parents. In those cases the child is removed from the abusive situation and put into a good one. It is intellectually dishonest to bring up the few worst-case scenarios as if they are the only scenarios.

In the end, your attempts to demonize adoption don't help the situation at all and are not pro-choice. Pro-choice wants women to have the choice to abort or give birth (with adoption being an option), whereas those who criticize adoption would rather mothers just aborted.

No. I'm simply challenging the statement "abortion is legal because rape exists."
