Midweek Politics: "Pregnant Girl Dies After Abortion Ban Prevents Chemotherapy": Is Pro Life Anti Healthcare?
I'm going to start off this post by asking a question, can you be Pro Life but Anti Healthcare, that might sound like a dumb question. But think about it, if you are Pro Life you support the protecting the lives of others, that all lives are special and deserved to be saved. This is one thing I respect about Dr. James Dobson, even though we disagree on both abortion and the Death Penalty. Dr. Dobson believes that even if you murdered someone, that the State doesn't have the right to take your life from you, he's also Pro Life on abortion. And think about what is healthcare for, for all you knuckleheads out there, that the answer is not obvious enough for. To protect our health, to save our lives and so fourth to help us be as healthy as we can be. So we can live as long as a healthy life as we can, we of course have some Individual Responsibility here and have to play our roles. But healthcare is there to help us with that, so naturally if you are Pro Life as a lot of Americans have claimed to be, you would be in favor of healthcare procedures that can save innocent Americans. Even in the case of abortion to save an innocent life instead of losing that life and the fetus.
But this unfortunately is not always the case, there are people who are so Anti Abortion, people who call people like myself "Pro Abortion". That they don't even believe Abortion should be legal, even to save the life and health of the mother. I guess they would prefer to see the mother die and then keep the baby alive for the father to raise by himself or whatever. I understand people who are Pro Life because they see abortion as the taking of an innocent life. And based on how they were raised and their real not made up Religious Beliefs, that killing innocent people is murder. And therefor is wrong, I get that but people who believe this. Tend to believe that there should be an exception for Abortion, to save the life of the mother. And in come cases, life and health and in other case, life, health and in the cases of rape and incest. These people aren't crazy and have a legitimate viewpoint, I just disagree with it.
But to be Pro Life and believe women shouldn't be allowed to get an abortion, just because they changed their mind or something. Or some other decision like that, is different from being Anti Healthcare, where you are so Anti Abortion that you've now become Anti Healthcare. That you wouldn't even allow Abortions to save the lives and health of the mother, is simply crazy and perhaps even cruel.
