I don't believe any of us are "pro-abortion". We're just real, and reality isn't always pretty. Having said that, I think abortion is an UGLY necessity. I hate re-reading it - and I hope I don't get a truck load of crap thrown at me for it - but its true. We cant provide for people as it is, and there are already 500 thousand kids stuck in foster care - some being tossed from one place to the next never finding the love and security they NEED. And all the GOP wants to do is make things harder for people - just imagine how worse things would be if Roe v Wade were ever overturned. No Birth Control funding, no federal funding for state Child Protective Service agencies (good bye foster care, hello streets), no cash, food, shelter or medical assistance ... This country would be an awful sight ... poverty & illness everywhere.
This is the kind of dimensional thinking the GOP is lacking. You cant just scream and holler "pro-life" and think that's all there is to it. There has to be some kind of plan as to how you're going to help the very life that you demanded be saved.
I think there is a lot we can do to help with adoption procedures and making sure that kids who have parents that don't want them can find those who do. I still don't believe abortion is a "necessity". Not generally anyway. There is too much red tape involved in our own orphanages and while there must be screening for parents and such; we should also strive to lower costs and make it a bit easier. We should probably invest a bit more into state run orphanages too in order to ensure the children have at least a decent upbringing even in State care. Better alive then dead I say. Abortion won't go away, so the best move is to make life the easier and more accepted choice.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
