Abortion Debate

Read more here. She presents all the sides.

I would be described as one of those extremists--I believe abortion is wrong even in cases of rape and incest. Why? The argument that a woman must live with the "raising of the chid forever" is stupid. Ever heard of adoption? In Texas you can drop a baby off at a hospital, fire or police department for 60 days with no reprecussions, no questions asked.

Almost all of the embarassment related to pregnancy out-of-wedlock is gone. But, women don't want to be seen as so shallow as to give the child up for her own needs. Abortion is preferable--the need to not be embarassed trumps ending another life.

"I just died of embarassment." Takes on new meaning.
