A Testy Debate
Pro life – if you shout this in a crowded room, you will either feel people patting you on the back or starting to sing about women’s rights. It’s a nasty debate which doesn’t seem to have any answers, though it does have a lot of questions and a lot of facts to back up both sides of the argument. While some say that abortion is a women’s rights issue, others say it’s an issue of morality and still others think it is an issue of them just being right about everything. This is not a site to debate whether pro life issues are correct or whether they are false, but rather this site seeks to educate those might not quite understand what pro life really is, what it means, and why it’s still being argued as the right way.
Telling Women What to Do
On the surface, the pro life movement seems to be a movement which impacts the reproductive rights of women – because it does. While Roe vs. Wade is still in effect, allowing women the right to choose to have elective abortions, pro life movement supporters believe that the law should stop this from happening. The pro life supporters believe that all abortions are wrong and that every baby should have a chance to be born. Though there are some who say that abortions in the case of rape or abuse might be okay, most of the pro life movement is black and white on the issue. If a woman is pregnant, they should carry it to full term.
More Than One Option
However, the pro life movement does recognize that those women who have gotten pregnant accidentally might not be ready to become mothers. Some groups offer the women a chance to give their babies up for adoption or they might provide support services to help a women raise a child on her own. Families might also step in to help with the child if the woman is too young to work or she might still be in school. Pro life doesn’t not necessarily mean the woman needs to raise the child until this child is eighteen; they only need to raise it until the child is out of the womb.
The Problems with Pro Life
But as with any singular movement, there are problems in the pro life movement. Not only are some of these supporters called too radical, but the church groups who convince women to keep their child are also accused of not giving enough support to women. In some cases, the child who is born is born into a difficult situation, one of which they might not have been a part if they had not been born.
No one has the right answer, but no one has the wrong answer either. Though the woman always has the right to choose, at this point anyway, the pro life movement does make some good points any scared and single mother might want to consider.
