Pro-life is a word used by many religiously affiliated groups to shame women who have had abortions, may need an abortion in the future, use birth control and the morning after pill. Pro-lifers enjoy protesting at abortion clinics, including Planned Parenthood. Many pro-lifers believe that a fetus of rape or incest should be carried to term. Denying a woman her right to an abortion if she was a victim of rape or incest is undeniably cruel, seeing as those victims are often embarrassed to report the crime, suffer from sexual insecurity, and often require years of counseling to make them feel whole again. Without an abortion, those women would be forced to carry a reminder of their rape around for nine months. Also, people who would try to take away abortions, especially in low-income areas, don't have support systems in place for young and disadvantaged mothers. Children are EXPENSIVE. Many people cannot afford children. Also, there are seven billion people on earth. We should be reducing the number of children born, not increasing it. This is why birth control and the morning after pill are completely necessary.
Person 1: You can't have an abortion.
Person 2 (pregnant by rape 12 year old): But, I emotionally and physically am not able to carry this fetus to term. I could die easily in childbirth. I don't want to die. If I don't get an abortion, I'll have to drop out of school.
Person 1: Well, God wanted you to have this baby. That's why you're pregnant. Getting an abortion isn't pro-life.
