Abortions will not end with

Abortions will not end with the repeal of Roe v. Wade, and that is the problem. The lack of appropriate education about human reproduction begins in the home, and NOT the local school system. Family values have deteriorated to such an extent, chastity no longer exists and is certainly not a valued virtue. Respect for the human body belongs to both genders and not solely to the female; males must also honor the idea behind a chaste lifestyle and not mock those who abide by it. The awful thing about anti-abortion agendas is the fact that they denigrate the woman and not the male who is also a party to the situation. Additionally, not one of the prolife agendas seek a means to assist those who do decide against the abortion, but the woman is quickly abandoned once she has agreed not to end the pregnancy. Adoption is not always available for these unwanted infants because agency rules and regulations are highly restrictive in the selection of adoptees. One of the more frequent reasons is that the parent(s) may have used drugs or the father's background is unknown. This leaves the woman with no other alternative to provide a home for an infant she does not want. End result: more child abuse cases, longer welfare roles, future increases of criminal activity among the unwanted (and believe me, that child knows they are not welcomed in that family). At least with Roe v. Wade, abortions are performed in approved, sterile, medical environments as opposed to the pre-Roe v. Wade abortions, which were performed in any seedy setting imaginable by non-medical personnel and resulting in a staggering number of deaths of the young women who became the victims of the backyard butchers. Do not be misled by believing the backyard butcher is a thing of the past--wringing their hands, they are gleefully and eagerly awaiting your success in repealing Roe v. Wade because it means money in their pocket, these paracitic vultures await in the background with a readied rusty scalpal or pills that not only destroy the unborn, but the vital organs of the mother as well. The cost per abotion will go up and the death toll will skyrocket just as it did prior to Roe v. Wade. Keep on praying for the appeal of Roe v. Wade and you will definitely be giving the devil his due. If you don't belive me, I suggest that every prolife group take an hour to view the medical archives of the pre-Roe v. Wade deaths resulting from the illegal abortions. Having had that experience while working in a hospital, I can guarantee that most of these well-meaning people couldn't last the hour allotted---it's is not only heartwrenching, but a rude awakening to facts of life. My suggestion to those who disagree with abortions at any stage of the pregancy (I would only agree for the first trimester; the law does not allow for 2nd and 3rd trimester abortions unless it is in deference to saving the mother's life--which is as it should be) to pray for guidance in reinstiling family values. Look back at what we had before and build on that with a positive agenda. Teach your children about the sanctity of life and marriage. That is how you may accomplish your goal.
