txt :: What do people REALLY think?

Ok, I want to talk about the abortion and see what you guys really think about it. Not what other people say, not what world says is right, but what you really think. Even if it may come contrary with your beliefs or traditions and you feel comfortable expressing it, please do.

The other day at work I was reading the Daily Universe (this is the only thing we can read at work except scriptures and LDS literature) and I found a debate between a democrat and a republican representative. The issue they were discussing was abortion. The girl represented the democrats and a young man represented republicans (I personally think that two representative of the same gender should take part in this kind of debate)

The opening sentence for the democrat argument was:

Our Church [LDS] teaches us... and she pursued with her comment. She presented a comment (which I very much agreed with), but it did not seem like it was coming from her, it was like she was pogrammed to say what was proper to say in the kind of the newspaper she was writing it for, which is BYU newspaper.

The guy's point of view was not very clear, but by the time I got to his point of view, I was already puzzled by the quesion that I am expressing here. What do people really think?

Here is my opinion. I think that each person has agency and they are to do with themselves whatever they wish. I also think that we cannot choose the consiquences of our choices. For example, if I were in the position where I got pregnant without a husband, I would NOT get an abortion for several reasons:

1. If I was blessed with a child I should give him/her life, raise him/her and be loving mother to him/her, because it was intended for me. I think that everything happens for a reason.

2. Health reasons. If a young woman who has not had kids before gets a first abortion she may never get pregnant again.

The only circumstances under which I would consider abortion is if I became a victim of rape. I personally think that it would be hard to raise a child and be reminded of a terrible thing that had been done to you.

Also, I think that again for the medical reasons, for example, one cannot give birth to a baby (either life of a baby or a mother is in danger) it is appropriate to get an abortion.

Again, we all know that adoption is very encouraged and probably would be the best answer but it is never easy to give away a baby.

I do not know what it is like to have someone inside you and then give it life, but I certainly think that parenting is one of the most amazing gifts given to men and women.

I am looking forward to your comments, guys. I know that there are single and married people and people with kids on this blog. I would really like to know what you think about this issue, what you really think.

The only comment about abortion that I'll make is that I think that having the freedom of doing it or not is good because then people can decide based on their own values and believes.

My comment is a about something else though. A little child has this phase when he/she learns about the world and asks "why?" about everything around. But then this age passes and we don't ask why is something right or wrong until we become adults and we have to do it because of the importance of the decisions that we make.

Now imagine you take that 3 year old kid and put him into the body of the adult because that is the level at which we can ask the "why?" question. Yes, we have more knowledge and more experience but that knowledge is of unquestionable truths that we never examined before.

I think that each and every one of us need to make an effort and teach our children (future ones for some) on how to examine everything before they do it and not be afraid of asking the altimate question - "why?" and seek the answer.

I'll venture into the abortion issue, and thanks Lilusha for bringing it up.

I agree with you almost 100%. To me, there is a world of difference b/t aborting at 1-2 months, or aborting at 5-9 months. I'm speaking from experience here. In the 2nd half of pregnancy, when the baby kicks when it hears daddy's voice, and moves, and has moods, and jumps when there is a loud noise; you understand and know that it is a real person. In my opinion, just after conception, you just have a fertilized egg with no spirit. However that doesn't mean I think it's okay to kill it. I think that in extreme circumstances (rape, health risk, etc.), it is okay to abort early-stage. When the group of cells becomes a person with a soul (my guess is 4-5 months in), then that individual has rights, one of them being the right to live.

From this, you can probably guess where I stand on the issue of stem-cell research. A group of cells (fertilized egg) in a test tube is not a person. But, take that group of cells, put it in a mother's uterus, and wait a little bit, and you are talking about a whole different thing. So that's my thought.


Sometimes I do what I want to do. The rest of the time, I do what I have to.
