Only 1% of abortions are because of rape or incest

Only 1% of abortions are because of rape or incest

Newsflash, only 1% of women who have abortions do so because they were raped or had incestuous relations.

Pro-choice activists legitimize the barbaric practice of abortion based on the above. But isn’t it convenient that they leave out the slim percentage of cases involving actual rape or incest?

So if only 1% of abortions are due to a woman being forced against her will to have intercourse, then logically speaking, the vast majority of abortion cases are due to irresponsible behavior on part of women (and sometimes men as well).

Speaking from a purely personal standpoint, the women I know who’ve had abortions did so because they were drunk, party sluts. In one case, an associate’s ex-girlfriend actually induced her own abortion by drinking beyond her body’s limit. Not only did she terminate her baby one month into the process, but she nearly killed herself as a result.

The question I must ask is, what specific course of events actually precedes a woman being accidentally impregnated? Is there alcohol involved? Probably. Are there drugs involved? Probably. Did the man involved not feel like driving all the way to convenience store in order to pick up a pack of rubbers? Probably.

And on the last point of rubbers, I’ve heard many men say that they don’t like wearing condoms because it robs them of a genuine feeling during sex. Are you kidding me?

But despite all that occurred which led to the unwanted pregnancy in the first place, the fact that irresponsible behavior can be effectively ‘cancelled out’ by a quick trip to the local abortion clinic is a gross injustice.

What’s equally bothersome is that with many abortion cases, there exists ‘repeat offenders’- that is to say, women who’ve had multiple abortions. “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, just get another abortion.”

One of the huge problems with our society is the extreme polarization of ideas. Those opposed to abortion are often viewed as Christian ideologues. And while its true that a vast majority of pro-life advocates are indeed Christian by faith, there remains ample space to actively oppose abortion even from a purely secular standpoint.

I oppose abortion because I do not feel as though irresponsible behavior on part of young, party sluts should be excused. When someone gets caught drinking and driving, they are punished with a DUI. Drunk drivers do not get a pass. Drunk drivers must pay the price for their gross irresponsibility.

Often it is asked, ‘is it better for a child to be born into this world knowing that his or her life will prove a living hell?’ Who knows? Maybe that aborted child would have grown to be the next Einstein. But even if all the aborted child ever amounted to was flipping burgers at McDonalds, still, this is a life- a full human being with thoughts, feelings and emotions that was prematurely MURDERED by an irresponsible mom who ought to be ASHAMED of herself.

Abortion will probably never be outlawed in the United States. But nonetheless, I’d like every irresponsible woman who ever walks into an abortion clinic to be FORCED to explain why she or the man who impregnated her DID NOT THINK THEIR ACTIONS THROUGH before having intercourse. I believe such data would be extremely valuable in the public space as it would underscore just how stupid some people can be.
