Our columnist, who has opted to have a termination since the birth of her two children, argues that it is a moral duty not to bring unwanted offspring into the world:
On Wednesday, More4 broadcast Travels with My Camera A Matter of Life and Death, a personal journey by the journalist Miranda Sawyer. This was heralded by a piece in The Observer, written by Sawyer, explaining the purpose of her quest.
Sawyers dilemma has been that, until recently, she had been a dyed-in-the-wool, card-carrying, pro-choice feminist. After the birth of her son last year, however, she began to have doubts about the ethics and logic of abortion. I was calling the life inside me a baby because I wanted it, she wrote, after visiting picketed abortion clinics in America. Yet if I hadnt, I would think of it just as a group of cells that it was OK to kill. It was the same entity. It was merely my response to it that determined whether it would live or die. That seemed irrational to me. Maybe even immoral.
Later she explained that: When youve experienced . . . pregnancy and birth, and the fantastic beauty of the resulting child, its hard not to question what a termination does, or is.
Its odd, because, since I had children, Ive found myself becoming much less troubled by the pro-life argument. Of course, that echoes that old, black-humoured mum joke, often heard in playgrounds on wintry February afternoons What do you think should be the cut-off point for terminations? I dunno. Secondary school? but also reflects how many issues still remain within the abortion debate.

"why it's a moral duty to turn your Jewish neighbors in to the Gestapo." "Why it's your moral duty to return an escaped slave to its owner."
Bad logic is always a sign of impending demise.
It separates normal human being from the lunatic fringe. Like Howard Dean, for example.
Yes, the ultimate act of motherhood is to kill your own baby.
Only a Leftist could subscribe to such tortured logic without any sense of shame or even irony.
To those who worship death.
Killing babies is a-okay. That’s what half or more of the “developed” world now thinks!
“moral duty not to bring unwanted offspring into the world”
NO! The moral duty would be to be responsible and not get pregnant if you don’t want another child.
Children are not trash that you throw away because they don’t cenveniently fit into your plans!
I guess if times are tough and I am having a hard time feeding my children, I should just take them out back and shoot them. That would be more moral than allowing them to live a tough life. /s
“I believe that when this girl has a child one day, when she is successful, it will be a reasonable sacrifice.”
But not reasonable for the dead baby..
To have the power to legally kill those human beings that inconvenience you. What some wouldn't give for that!
All she had to do was let that child live and let it be adopted by a loving family that is unable to get pregnant.
Killing a baby is not a sacrifice that the Mother makes. It is a MURDER that the Mother allows for convenience sake.
Naw, just spank them and the state will take away custody from you. ;-)
***I believe that when this girl has a child one day, when she is successful, it will be a reasonable sacrifice.***
I just heard a priest say that we spend all our time and energy to become successful and to make a lot of money, Then we hand all that hard-earned money to psychologists to get over the guilt of what we did to be successful.
This woman is no child, she has had two children. She knows how they are made. Why didnt she choose birth control or have a tubal ligation before she became pregnant?
No she just went along and got pregnant ,then decided to snuff the kid.
She is either extremely stupid or terribly reckless.
Either way another paid the cost of her recklessness. That person is dead, Just another piece of tissue thrown in the biological garbage bin of an abortion mill.
Now she tries to make excuses for her mistake by saying I didnt want it so its better off dead.
What a putz, may she remember this child to the end of her days.
Leviticus 18:21 (King James Version)
And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.
When she gets older and reflects on what she’s done and lost I think she’ll understand a little better.
Anyway when she goes before Saint Peter and has to ask permission to enter the kingdom of heaven she may reevaluate her position.
HEEEEYUuck yuk yuck yukk ...
Maybe youy should be allowed to put a knife into the back of their skull and suck out their brains all the way until high school!
