I’m not sure what’s prompting me to write this post or pose this question, other than the topic was mentioned in some comments recently and it is something that has always bugged me (for lack of a better term) a bit.
The topic: abortion.
The question: what happens to the baby after it is born?
So much of the arguments made by the pro-life movement surround the life of the unborn child and their concern for said life. It seems to me though, that with the exception of a very few, that concern ends as soon as the child is born. What happens to those children who are born into absolutely horrendous situations? I know this will sound cold but sometimes I think not having the baby is the most responsible thing to do.
Abortion is a horrible thing that should be avoided at all costs but sometimes it might be the right thing to do. I guess where I differ from the pro-life crowd is that they are worried about the baby in the womb and I’m worried about what’s going to happen to that baby in the world.
