One of the other problems is that most arguments FOR abortion FROM people who say they are pro-life is "If we make abortion legal, people will abort in unsafe environments and die."
But that's not a sound argument. It's true that it would happen because history says so, but we wouldn't permit killing a 3-year-old if it means easing poverty on the mother. Nor would we permit a genocide because it would curb third-world hunger.
We kill a fetus and people go crazy.
But when we send a 216 month old child of ours to fight and die in a war that is unjustified we don't bat an eye.
We don't panic if we allow a 84 month old child to have to fend for himself on a gang ridden street because the single mom is addicted to crack. We just say What a Shame, poor kid.
We call it a right of passage for a 192 month old child to go and drink with his friends then they drive home and die in a car accident. It then becomes merely tragic if you're nice about it; more often it comes with dumb kid he just thinned the herd.
Infanticide comes in all forms. I despise all of it.
