Whether or not abortion is a sin, is between God and the person having the abortion, not any other person and/or book, God inspired or otherwise.
We all have our opinions on the matter, and like spoiled kids who argue over which flavor ice cream to have, we aren’t going to budge and/or see the other’s point of view.
With that said, I personally don’t believe that abortion is an acceptable form of birth control, considering that there are many things a woman, and a man, could do to avoid getting pregnant.
Now that doesn’t mean that I believe every person who has an abortion is using it as such, there are many reasons why someone would feel lead to make that decision, and unless we walked a mile in their shoes, we have no right to assume what their reasons are and/or to pass judgment on them for doing so.
Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as yourself” and in this particular situation these words have fallen on deaf ears, they have been overlooked and ignored many times over.
None of us would want to be judged and/or condemned when we had a difficult decision like this to make, but still we take it upon ourselves to treat others like trash when they are faced with a decision such as this, which is totally unloving and hurtful to say the least.
It saddens me to see people fight so vigorously for the unborn, but then when they are born as a result of their actions, they want nothing more to do with them, and they could care less what the ultimate outcome would be of their life and overall wellbeing.
They curse, they condemn and they make the women who have abortions, or even just considering one, feel like complete garbage, like they belong with the likes of the most heinous murderers this world has ever seen.
You never see people offering solutions, only judgment, which is very unfortunate.
Why don’t these antiabortion people offer to pay for a psychiatrist for the mother who had to carry and deliver a child who may have come to be by some less than desirable means and/or possibly born into an unhealthy environment, but decided to keep the child based on their influence?
Why don’t these same people offer to pay for diapers, formula and other related expense that come with having a child, they say you’re going to hell for having an abortion, but you’ll never see them go to the bank with the purpose of helping out with the expenses of having a child?
The women, who we men are supposed to love, cherish and protect, are tossed aside as if they are nothing more than the cardboard packaging that hold the Cracker Jacks, the box is worthless, we only want the prize inside.
Before damning another to the depths of hell for their actions, or making them feel like less than an equal, take a step back and look upon them with compassion, and unclench your fist of rage and offer an understanding hand.
We men, whether we like it or not, have no rights and/or say-so over a woman’s body, they are free to do as they feel fit, just as we are.
The sooner we realize this, and allow others to live their lives as they so desire, they sooner we can move forward and work to make this planet a better place for all of us involved.
Now of course in an ideal world, this decision would be discussed by both parties involved and an outcome would be reached that benefits all interested parties, but unfortunately that is not always the case and sometimes us men are left out of the decision altogether.
