Bringing a Child Into the World

It’s okay not to feel ready to be a parent. Make it clear to your conversation partner that you don’t think an unprepared pregnant woman should just be left to fend for herself. Society should use nonviolent methods to support pregnant women. For example, we’re grateful for the adoption system. Placing a baby for adoption can be a great act of love toward that baby.

Fertilization brings a kid into the world; abortion kills a kid who is already alive.

Our hero: I wish it were easier for women to decide when they have kids. But after fertilization a unique human is already present with DNA that won’t be repeated in a later pregnancy. Abortion determines which kids are born, not when kids are born.Person 1: Some women can’t afford a child. Person 2 (our hero): I agree. Poverty is a serious, concerning hardship. Let me ask a question; bear with me. If a mom can’t afford to continue raising her two-year-old, may she kill her child?Person 1: I think we should focus on helping the kids who are already alive. Person 2 (our hero): I care a ton about kids after birth, and I agree that we should focus on actual, living people. But biologically speaking, a fetus is already alive.Person 1: It’s just a blob of tissue. Person 2 (our hero): I’m not sure I understand. I agree a fetus is made of tissue, but so are you and I. Is your point maybe that a fetus seems like “raw human material” that still needs to be “assembled” before it’s a real human?
