Lets imagine for a moment that you find yourself in a difficult position one that has led to abject panic about your future career, the fate of a valued relationship, or whether youll even be able to make ends meet. Lets also stipulate that your difficulty is largely your fault. You made some short-sighted, bad decisions that precipitated the crisis, but questions of responsibility are moot now all that exists is the crisis, the stress that has overtaken your life. To be sure, theres a way forward, a way out of the crisis, but even the most attractive options will require considerable commitment for most of a year with potential for prolonged heartache.
Then, one evening youre offered a way out. Your most recent troubles can go away, for the cost of a few hundred dollars and most of an afternoon. The catch? Someone has to die.
Oh, its not anyone you know or will ever know. They dont have family that knows them, they dont have spouses or children, and theyll be so thoroughly unmourned that no one will even have to pay for a funeral. Decide now, and they might not even feel pain. Wait longer, and theyll feel pain but only for a little while.
You dont have to see the body. You wont know the persons name. No one will have to know what you did. Indeed, the law strictly protects your confidentiality. An anonymous kill . . . then youre free.
Ask the vast majority of rational people if theyd kill another person to change their own circumstances for the better, and theyd quickly answer no. Put them in the actual situation, and we know that millions answer yes. We know because of abortion.

Are women overrated?
David French NAILED it.
only the ones that kill their children for convenience
for that matter however, there are plenty of men coercing women to abort their children
And you can quickly see why a female would not want to marry up with such a man. Besides, society in America supports the murder and even promotes the utilitarian value of such murder, so how could a girl see another moral path? America is lost. We have too much innocent blood on our hands to expect God to bless and secure US from our enemies.
If you can convince a mother to kill her own child, then you can also convince her to vote Democrat.
There’s no such thing as a “healthy abortion.”
One of the sad things about abortion is that some women who have them do mourn their dead child. Some of them even redeem their consciences by turning against this abhorrent practice.
