The ugly truth about abortion. It needs to be told, this is why we are in the bind we're in, we're no better than the Mayans throwing babies off of the pyramids for sacrifices. The truth is powerful, if you have the guts to read it.
Why wasn't this news reported here?? This is one of the worst crimes I have heard of in years and the media is too cowardly to report it.

Indeed this will occur with far greater frequency if abortion is made illegal in this nation. After all removing a woman's right to choose to have an abortion will not prevent people from having abortions it will simply force people to venture into the "medical underground". I'm sure we have all heard the stories of what used to be called back ally abortions, or people going to extraordinary lengths to end a pregnancy which in many cases caused not only the termination of the fetus but also the woman.
Yet, we still have people who insist on going back in time and taking rights away from people. The way I see it, and I'm sure a great many others agree is simply that if you yourself do not agree with abortion, do not have one. There is no need for anyone to force their particular belief models upon any other person, be it individually or on a grand scale such as through government intervention in the form of criminalization and bannings.
I have heard much from the anti abortion side as to why they feel I and everyone else needs to join forces with them. Yet not once was the topic of what will happen to all the babies which can not be taken care of properly. For any number of reasons, financial, mental health, illness, you name it, there will be babies who simply can not be taken care of, and raised in a way which is conducive to providing them with a bright future. So let us look at what will happen to many of these babies.
The unwanted babies forced by law to be born, many will simply be abandoned, or given up. Not that this does not happen today though in a no abortion nation there will be many more of them, so where will they end up I ask. Some will be adopted, and in many cases adoption is wonderful, but there are some potential problems there as well, lack of proper bonding with the new family as one example. Unfortunately not all orphaned babies get adopted by good families, many of them never will, and will end up as long term wards of the state in either group homes, or foster care. That's right, foster care, an over burdened underfunded system ripe with scammers and unfit "parents", again don't get me wrong there are some wonderful foster homes out there, but there are also horror stories, and a great number of foster children can tell you just how horrible the entire system is.
So we make the government ban abortion, forcing it into the underground clinics and fly by nights. We dump countless new orphaned children into our extremely over crowded, underfunded, and ineffective foster/group home programs. With no plan from the proponents of this idea what so ever on how to deal with the influx of unwanted babies. Where will all the new funding come from to meet the new demand, where will the increased oversight come from, where will the money to enforce the no abortion law come from, where will space be made in our prisons for those who get abortions, or even the prison hospitals, where will all this come from?
As I said, any many have said before me. If you do not agree with abortion do not have one. I have also noticed, that the vast majority of the people who I have encountered that are on the anti abortion side of the issue are extremely conservative, which begs the question if one is conservative, and as many conservatives are of the mind set that the government should leave them alone, stay out of their personal business why than would you lobby for the government to outlaw one's right to abortion? Is this not contrary to staying out of someone's personal business? Or is it simply that you want the government to stay out of your business, but people who don't share the same views as you don't deserve that protection.
Needless to say this entire issue disgusts me, Just as any other issue where the question of removing right from people for any reason is asked disgusts me. Be it abortion, gay marriage, freedom of religion, or keeping religion out of government. Yet, I know I won't change anyone's mind about anything. I can present all the facts and information I can get my hands on it won't change a damned thing, because it isn't about reality, truth, or the facts. It is about belief, and belief can only rarely be changed with facts. It is the vary nature of belief that makes it nearly impervious to fact, as a belief requires no evidence what so ever.
