Parenting website Mommyish recently published an article advocating ten reasons (well, actually nine) to have an abortion. In response, I wrote a piece debunking the author’s arguments. Today, I will discuss ten reasons not to have an abortion.
1) It compounds tragedy.
2) It takes innocent lives.
3) It violates civil rights.
4) It punishes innocent people.
5) It can harm women.
6) It is damaging to relationships and families.
7) It never goes away.
8) It creates new problems.
9) It avoids responsibility.
10) It’s not empowering or liberating for women
All women should understand exactly what abortion is.
