Making more sense of abortion dialog

A legitamate question would be to inquire why she became pregnant in the first place if she was not able or willing to deal with the consequences i.e. having the child and raising it.

For a long time, some of us have been waiting for the din in our ears to subside over a woman’s right to choose and its implications. It’s been going on and on ad nauseam without resolution and still, no end in sight.

If some of us are ever to understand why abortion on demand is of such critical importance to the left, the dialog, if you can call it that, will have to start making more sense to the average person. It occurs to me that most of the chatter would dissipate if the discussion would focus on something more fundamental than a woman’s right to dispose of an unwanted fetus. A legitamate question would be to inquire why she became pregnant in the first place if she was not able or willing to deal with the consequences i.e. having the child and raising it.

Many couples practice safe sex without suffering serious consequences to say nothing of the benefit to the unborn fetus. Considering the emotional stress involved with abortion, one would think that approach would have merit. Abortion is a grisly business and resort to this procedure so often and so casually is shocking.

So what are we missing? What don’t some of us understand? Why all the fuss when there is a safe way out of this mess?
