The debate over abortion never ends, we have been going at this for generations.
In this day and age, one can even buy an abortion pill and terminate a pregnancy the next day after conceiving, there is no end to what one can do.
Some want the government to make abortion legal and some want to make it illegal. It seems everyone wants the government to do something and make everyone adhere to what they determine is the correct way to handle this.
As it stands now, abortion is legal in the United States. Many on the right would like to see it once again ruled to be illegal, citing moral and ethical, and religious reasons.
While this may be all and good, and seem to be the proper way to solve the problem, it can create a dilemma.
Suppose abortion is declared illegal. Suppose a woman has an abortion or miscarries. If the court ruled that life begins at conception, It wouldn’t be very difficult to find a doctor who would testify to the effect the woman did something to cause the miscarriage, such as smoking. The woman could then be brought up on murder charges. Even if the woman did nothing wrong, she would then have to spend thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours defending herself in a court of law to prove her innocence.
This would create a bonanza for politicians and lawyers.
The only logical solution is to do what I think the original framers of our constitution had in mind in the first place.
Keep the government out of it. It is a moral issue and has no business in the public forum and should not be paid for through public funds.
If you are old enough to have a baby, you are old enough to be responsible for your actions and pay for them.
The decision should be made between the mother and the father, and God. The father should be consulted, it is his child also, If the father has no interest, then the mother makes the decision, keeping in mind the moral issues associated with abortion.
The more we involve government in our lives, the more complicated our lives become. There is no one who will be more concerned for your health and welfare than you.
