WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE? I'm between a rock and a hard place on the issue of Abortion — I’m finding myself leaning more pro-life, but with proper educational resources and medical care available so that it's not the current conditions of "pro-birth" ... just about power and control by men. The fetal heart-beat starts at about 5 weeks, a living creature at that point, regardless if it could live outside the womb or not. There must be a way to educate and encourage women (and men) that have had sex, willingly or not, to go directly to the doctor to handle this before that heart-beat starts ... if they do not wish to have a baby that is. As it is, Roe v Wade provides that abortions are legal up to 24 weeks, well beyond that of the heart-beat starting. I don't wish to shame anyone for making the decision to have an abortion up until this point in time, that's not my intention. I know that a majority of those that have made the decision didn't do so easily, but at the same time, I don't like that the pro-choice dialogue has somehow come to mean that we can go out there and make irresponsible choices with our sexual activity and eliminate a life (when the heart starts beating and beyond) simply because it would inconvenience our previously scheduled lives.
How can we articulate a pro-life platform that speaks to the sensitive nature of this conversation? Is it possible to write one that respects women while protecting the rights of the unborn AND that educates and challenges our people to make responsible choices ... I'm going to keep researching and speaking with people, but if you have any further thoughts ... I'm all ears! 🙏🏼💜🇺🇸 #Abortion #ProLife #ProChoice #Healthcare #Women #USA #Law #Politics #Platform #Policy #Government #Education #Listen #Learn #Grow #Baby #News #Media #Instagood #Opinion
