Food For Thought

So this is a difficult topic of discussion for most so just a warning right now: This post is highly controversial and political. And about abortion…

Okay so for starters my attention was drawn to this topic because of a post on Facebook I saw about Bill Nye and something about abortion and science. Obviously I haven’t even read it yet. But the article had something to do what pro choicer should say to pro lifers. I am a pro choicer.

But that’s not what this is about…I’ve been wondering this for a little while. I don’t understand why pro lifers feel the way they do. I understand the thought that yes another potential life is being taken. But my maybe not so true but slightly correlating thought is that most pro lifers are against welfare and government support. I know for a fact that if I, a young female who has a fulltime job and whom is trying her best to be an independent adult, were to become pregnant and I were to keep the baby I would can guarantee I would need government assistance.

To clarify I am not degrading or against families or individuals who require government assistance. I am however agreeing that the assistance money does have to come from taxes (it’s a basic fact). I am actually very pro government assistance programs. Having that available to you can make a huge difference in a life.

I also understand that not all people who have an abortion are thinking quite like myself. I know there are people who misuse their right to choose that option. I do not support abortion as a means of constant birth control.

So I suppose the real question when deciding if you should be pro choice to pro life is which do you care about more? Life or money?
