Views on abortion

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said:

'Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I'm pregnant again. I don't want kids so close together.'

So the doctor said: 'OK, and what do you want me to do?'

She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy and I'm counting on your help with this.'

The doctor thought for a little and after some silence he said to the lady: 'I think I have a better solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you, too.'

She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then, he continued: 'You see, in order for you not to have to take care of two babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we're going to kill one of them, it doesn't matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.'

The lady was horrified and said: 'No, doctor! How terrible! It's a crime to kill a child!'

'I agree', the doctor replied. 'But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.'

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.

He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that's already been born and one that's still in the womb - the crime is the same.

Love says: 'I sacrifice myself for the good of the other person.' Abortion says: 'I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself.'

Da ma, numa' ca nu e mereu asa. Exista termene, si exista o limita. Asa, de fiecare data cand o dai pe laba sau pui un prezervativ omori cel putin un copil, daca nu niste gemeni. Si'n plus, crescutul unui copil nu e asa simplu, nu e vorba ca'ti faci tie viata mai usoara da' ierti un copil de o foarte probabila copilarie chinuita si viata de cacat. Sunt putini cei care merg sa faca un avort asa, ca si cum s'ar duce sa'si scoata amigdalele. Discutia despre avort mi se pare anti-productiva si o risipa de energie din partea unor oameni care par dispusi sa'si sacrifice foarte mult timp de grija altora (aici nu vorbesc de tine, am vazut ca l'ai pus la categoria Personal). Mult mai productiv si bine ar fi daca s'ar concentra pe evitatul situatiei, gen prezervative si anti-concecptionale gratuite, programe de consultatie legate de viata sexuala, samd. Parerea mea.

Foarte de acord. Eu nu am stat niciodata la discutii interminabile pe subiect, iar exemplul din textul de mai sus e chiar extrem si deloc realist.

Dar e, asa cum zice si titlul, un "view" on abortion, diferit de ce citesti de obicei. Chiar daca e extrem.

I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself.

Reminds me of something. I think it's called survival instinct and every animal has it. Antelopes leave the old, young, injured, weak, slow members of their group to the predators, carnivores eat their cubs to stay alive.

There is a very big difference between killing the already born child and the one in the womb. Killing the already born child instead of the unborn one is wrong because it is irrational and it goes against survival instincts, against the let the weakest die first principle.

By the way, do you know how bodies were piled up in gas chambers? Strongest men on top. They were in there with their families, their loved ones and they were literally stepping on their bodies for a few more seconds of life.

Abortion is survival instinct. And every woman who is being preached about moral and love just because she wants an abortion should respond with just this "shove your moral and your love up your ass!"

Also, I'm very much pro-abortion no matter what the reason behind may be, because it leads to the best possible outcome for everyone: an unwanted child is not born on a planet that is overpopulated anyway. I imagine it must be a lot of fun to wake up every day seeing a child you absolutely hate because you lost everything you've ever wanted when you gave birth. And a lot of fun to grow up with a mother who absolutely hates you for ruining her life.

As a man, I can't give birth and therefore I am neither pro nor against abortion. I am very much in favor of condoms (I don't like the idea of pills) and the overall birth control.

Planning is everything when it comes to giving birth.

But I strongly believe that abortion is the second most traumatic experience a woman can have (most traumatic being rape). And I stand by this, although I'm not a woman.

Cannot but agree with that.

As for the last part, I cannot help thinking that we are fortunate enough not to live in a time or a part of the world that might teach us a thing or two about traumatic experiences.

True, but I wasn't going to include all possible traumatic experiences like watching my whole family beheaded or being sent to the gas chamber. I kept it... light.
