You have a right to your property but cities can pass zoning laws that forbid certain things such as no fences. Of course if there is a state law that says pools have to surrounded by a fence and you have a pool in your yard the state law takes precedence and you have to have a fence.
adopt a kid website shows that many kids of different ages (not just young) are awaiting adoption. Interesting that there are a high proportion of families of children which means children taken away or removed from parents in some way.
I'll respond when you can deal with my argument a little more coherently thank you.
I certainly never said ALL these children but if they were allowed to be born at least they would have a chance to live in a happy caring home. If they find they are not happy then perhaps they can later self abort, but that decision should not be made for them. It's also highly unlikely they would make that decision as they probably appreciate the value and opportunity of life moreso than the abortionist or the potential mother who doesn't want to be inconvenienced. Perhaps these children should also should have some rights over their bodies.The fallacy many pro-life people make is that all these children would have happy caring homes to go to. In the last set of US statistics, 400,000 children were in care. Not adopted and not living idyllic rosy happy lives.
Explain what? It seems I was quite clear.Please explain?
I have no idea, but should we abort babies because you don't know which home they might go to? I'm sure there are people who have an understanding of where children are wanted and have homes available for these babies.Yeah, add another 50 million humans to the equation, if a large proportion of those unwanted kids had gone on to be born - what percentage would be adopted / in foster care / in children's homes?
It seems clear they would. Those babies who were aborted are also those who would grow up to be taxpayers to support the social programs initiated by the same people who expect these social programs. Who is to pay for these programs if we are killing millions of the next generation?Would pro-lifers be happy to foot the bill for all those extra millions?
I don't understand what you are trying to say in your last sentence.
Right to privacy means reproductive rights.
The right to privacy means they get to plan their families, they get to plan the number of children they want, how far apart they want their children etc.
Even when abortion was illegal, most abortions were performed by doctors in their office. What you meant to say was "back ally", not "back room", meaning the doctor would let the patient into the office through an ally exit so as not to be seen. It doesn't mean the abortion was performed in an ally.
5 Myths About “Back Alley” Abortions
Myth #1. Illegal abortions were performed by unlicensed, unskilled hacks.
Prior to legalization, 90 percent of illegal abortions were done by physicians. Most of the remainder were done by nurses, midwives or others with at least some medical training.
The term “back alley” referred not to where abortions were performed, but to how women were instructed to enter the doctor’s office after hours, through the back alley, to avoid arousing neighbors’ suspicions.An illegal abortion may be called a "back-alley", "backstreet", or "back-yard" abortion.
The wire coat hanger method was a popularly known illegal abortion procedure, although they were not the norm. In fact, Mary Calderone, former medical director of Planned Parenthood, said, in a 1960 printing of the American Journal of Public Health:
"Abortion is no longer a dangerous procedure. This applies not just to therapeutic abortions as performed in hospitals but also to so-called illegal abortions as done by physician. In 1957 there were only 260 deaths in the whole country attributed to abortions of any kind, second, and even more important, the conference [on abortion sponsored by Planned Parenthood] estimated that 90 percent of all illegal abortions are presently being done by physicians. Whatever trouble arises usually arises from self-induced abortions, which comprise approximately 8 percent, or with the very small percentage that go to some kind of non-medical abortionist. Abortion, whether therapeutic or illegal, is in the main no longer dangerous, because it is being done well by physicians."
