Abortion has become a contentious issue in Texas and now in the United States. It has always been a controversial issue, but the left has gone mad since Texas approved the Heartbeat Bill, which forbids abortion after six weeks. They’ve even suggested not having physical intercourse until the bill is repealed. What an exciting moment to be a divorce lawyer.
The Supreme Court didn’t stop the bill, which caused the left to get even more upset. The left wants abortions on demand any time, any day. It harms society, the baby that is being aborted, and even the mother.
Florida Congresswoman Kat Cammack gave a moving speech during a congressional hearing. Cammack’s mother considered getting an abortion when she was pregnant but chose not to. Given that perspective, shouldn’t people who are alive today from mothers who chose not to get an abortion be seen as heroes? They made it. When they had no voice, a decision was made to allow them to come into the world and thrive. Cammack went on to become a Florida Representative.
Cammack stated that her mother had a stroke before her mother’s pregnancy, which led her mother to lose her ability to walk for a year and a half until she learned how to walk again. After she got pregnant, the doctor told her she was at a high risk of losing her or the child’s life, but her mother went through with the birth anyway. Cammack said that her mother miraculously survived.
These are the stories that aren’t shared often. You see people advocating for abortion that may not have ever had one or experienced what childbirth was like. Meanwhile, men aren’t allowed to have a voice in “reproductive rights,” if that’s what you want to call it. Reproductive rights would mean that someone is allowed to give birth rather than someone is allowed to terminate a pregnancy. Democrats use backward terminology to claim that abortion is a woman’s right, but reproductive rights should mean something different.
Abortion does kill a child. Life is defined by “the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death.”
Children in the womb produce growth, reproduction (at least cells), functional activity, and continual change. Reproduction doesn’t begin well into a child’s life after birth, so for that argument to be made valid for abortion, you would have to either exclude the example or suggest abortion should take place into a child’s teenage years when reproduction occurs possible.
Pro-life marches and agendas don’t get the type of coverage as pro-choice rallies do. Pew Research conducted a poll that resulted in 59% of Americans want abortion legal in most or all cases, and 39% of Americans wanted it illegal in most or all cases. The divide did come with things like religious beliefs, education level, and many other factors that dove deeper into the issue.
