A horrible thing that I wish would just disappear.
You know how the Republicans (and some Democrats) are always complaining about abortion. Well get this: As much as these politicians make gestures towards getting rid of abortion, they will NEVER completely eliminate it. Why? Because abortion produces plenty of tub-thumping. It allows politicians an issue to demagogue each other and appeal to people of faith with talk of the "right to life." Abortion is important to politicians because of its value as a political tool. If abortion simply disappeared, politicians would have to find another issue to emptily "debate" about.
Translation: We'll impose minor restrictions and pass 10 zillion resolutions. Because if we actually outlawed abortion, we'd lose our most important power-maintaining "issue." It's like the Eternal War in Nineteen Eighty-Four.
Casey Anthony had a very late-term abortion. She did it herself, but it's the same thing.
*Amy goes to doctor*
Amy: Hello Doctor, i'm pregnant. Get rid of it.
Doctor: Ok, we'll just scramble its brains and vacuum it out of there.
Very controversial topic about if it is wrong or not, but anybody who supports it knows it is wrong and turns a blind eye. Their most common and feeble argument is that it is a woman's choice what to do with her body. Everyone knows it's not her body. It's the baby's. And if she hadn't been stupid she could have "chosen" not to have sex in the first place. In the case of rape--what the hell is wrong with adoption?
Pro-choicers believe they have science on their side, which couldn't be funnier. “He who denies that human life begins with conception does not need to contend with religion, but science. To deny this certainty of biology is not to express a lack of faith, but a lack of basic knowledge of human genetics, something that is even known by the general public.”

Jacey: "How so?"
Sarah: "Like, it gives women more choice and freedom!"
Jacey: "Often, abortions are given to very young girls who are scared and ashamed of the pregnancy and are generally easy to manipulate. It's more like it takes rights away from women."
Sarah: "Umm, well sometimes the mom can like, DIE! Then what?"
Jacey: "Yeah, that's true. But how selfish it is that a mother would kill her own child to save her own skin or risk being injured in the slightest."
Sarah: "Well, it's just a clump of tissue!"
Jacey: "I'm a clump of tissue. You're a clump of tissue. Your point? There's no denying what that 'clump of tissue' will grow into if somebody does not decide to kill the poor thing. Plus- it's not. It's a human, obviously."
Sarah: "Fine, well...whatever! Even if you manage to get rid of abortion, illegal ones will still take place!"
Jacey: "But the rate will most likely have significantly decreased, and you don't know how many people will be constantly finding more and more illegal abortion clinics and doctors. I, for one, will never stop being the voice of those innocent children who never had one."
The typical argument between he pro-"choice" and pro-LIFE sides. Anddd it's obvious who has more facts, science, and basic morals on their side. Choose life. :)
2. a) The act of terminating the "life" of an unborn child.
b) If used in large quantities, a potentially greatly effective method of population control.
2. a) She had an abortion in her 5th month of the pregnancy.
b) We could really use more abortion.
