I thought it would be beneficial to cover some reasons why women may have to make the painful decision of getting an abortion.
Financial: Not only is raising a child expensive, but the expense of a pregnancy itself is a huge financial burden. This includes things such as doctor’s visits, maternity clothing, vitamins, and taking time off work.
Impending Miscarriage: Miscarriages are something that women can’t control. In this instance, an abortion is necessary to avoid medical emergencies in the future.
Life Threatening: Childbirth can kill women. Let’s say your wife is 9 weeks pregnant and you find out having the baby will kill her. What are you: pro-life or pro-wife?
Emotion: Some women aren’t emotionally ready to raise a child. This can also result in major mental health problems.
Social: In many teen pregnancies, the woman is often teased, ridiculed and bullied. This can result in extreme depression.
Rape: Need I say more…
Broken Foster Care System: Adoption isn’t always an option. It’s not common for women to find a perfect, stable happy family who is willing to adopt her child. The more common scenario is for children to end up in a less than perfect foster care system.
Choice: Having a child is a woman’s a choice and and she can choose what she wants to do with her body.
