I will state a few obvious facts here about this case.
The case is whether to give the woman 15 weeks after being impregnated to get an abortion or keep the baby. This is literally about whether 15 weeks is enough time or not.
Having sex with or without birth control of some sort is a conscience decision 2 people make. They know the consequences prior to having sex that the woman can get pregnant even if using birth control. It is an immature and irresponsible act that they are committing if they are not prepared for the consequences. Getting pregnant is not a mistake when 2 people consent. It is a choice they make to take a chance to get pregnant.
Most women know they are pregnant within 4-6 weeks of of being impregnated. The case before the court is basically is 15 weeks enough time for a woman to decide if she wants to have a legal abortion or keep the baby. I believe it is plenty of time. Any more time and all we are doing is allowing the woman to be irresponsible longer to make a decision that she can easily make in the 9+ weeks she has after she discovers she is pregnant. Why are we arguing that we are taking abortion away from the woman. It is obvious that 9+ weeks is more than enough time to make the decision to have an abortion and go get one legally.
Having an abortion or not is a conscience decision and 9+ weeks is plenty of time to decide to have one or not. It is irresponsible of those who are not telling the truth when they say we are taking abortion away from women. We are not. We are only forcing them to decide whether they want one or not within a reasonable time period. Getting rid of Roe is not taking abortion away from women. It only puts the law back into the hands of the states and the citizens like it was before Roe.
If a woman makes the conscience decision to wait until after the 15 week period to have an illegal abortion, then she is breaking the law. It is her decision to do so. If she wants to risk her life because she is stupid and irresponsible then so be it. It is her body and her decision. That is exactly what the pro life people are arguing. So let her have her body her decision. But like the rest of us law abiding adults we have to live within the laws of our country. No one is above the law. That includes women. If a woman wants to use a coat hanger then let her. If she wants to go to a back alley abortion clinic, it is her choice. She also has the choice to keep the baby which is in essence the decision she made when she waited past the 15 week period that the law allows for. So what is the argument for the pro choice crowd? The woman has the choice. She can make any choice she wants to. She has more than enough time to make the decision and have a legal abortion. Any other choices she makes are her own choices to make. Making abortion illegal after 15 weeks does not force any woman to do anything illegal or to risk her life. If she wants to risk her life because she made the conscience decision to wait past the 15 weeks then she might die for her decision. But that is what the pro life people argue for. Her body, her decision.
I realize there are other issues that are beyond the scope of only what I spoke about here and that is getting pregnant by consensual sex. I am not speaking about any other issues other than consensual sex and the woman getting pregnant and all the choices the woman has including stupid and irresponsible choices. But let’s speak the truth here, the woman has all the choices. What she does with those choices are hers to make, stupid or otherwise. If she had not made the conscience decision to risk getting pregnant in the first place, she would never have put herself in that position in the first place. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
