Pro-life vs. Pro- choice

Pro- life verse pro- choice has become an increasing battle. Many people vote pro- life because they think a fetus is a person and they don’t want the mother to kill their own child. Many people also vote pro- life because they think couples and intimate partners should know the consequences to having sex, and being pregnant is one of the major side effects. However, many people vote pro- choice because they don’t think anyone should be able to control anyone’s body but their own. I myself definitely vote pro- choice. For those of you who have read any of my other blogs, you know I am a firm believer in knowing you are the only person in charge of your body. No one else has the right to say what anyone can and can’t do with their body.
I don’t think it’s fair to be forced to have an unwanted child. It won’t only be bad for the mother, but the child will grow up in a horrible household. What if a prostitute gets pregnant? She’s supposed to raise a child under those circumstances? She might not even know who the father is. Clearly if she’s a prostitute she struggles to make money for herself, so how is she supposed to add another mouth to feed? I think it’s unrealistic and the child might God forbid end up in a dumpster.
If a woman doesn’t think having a child at the time she is pregnant is a good idea, she shouldn’t be forced to have one. I think in the long run if a woman has an abortion she has a good reason. It’s no one else’s business but hers and it’s only her decision to make.
