SCOTUS Gets It Right

I firmly believe that the elective abortion of a baby growing in the uterus should be 100% illegal in every instance. It should never be legal to end the life of an innocent human to improve another human’s life.

I also firmly believe that a woman should be able to decide what to do with her own body, and I emphasize, HER OWN BODY (not someone else’s body growing inside her). That means that if an 18 year old woman wants to be permanently sterilized, she should have the right to do this. I can understand if some doctors think that she shouldn’t do it, and they are free to refuse to do that surgery, but you can’t tell me that this world has hundreds of medical practitioners willing to kill babies but zero medical practitioners willing to do elective tubal ligations. That’s nonsense.

SCOTUS reversed Roe v Wade yesterday. This is a good thing, but there are too many people right now thinking, “yaay! Abortion is illegal now!” or “Oh no! They’ve ended my right to get an abortion!” Both are equally false. This SCOTUS decision only returned the issue to the states where it will now be just like the marijuana issue: legal some places, illegal in others, with varying and diverse regulations and rules.

As far as the cost goes, if it cost $500 to get an abortion in Texas, I would imagine that it would be slightly more involved to buy a plane ticket (bus ticket, whatever) to Illinois, California, Las Vegas, or wherever to get the abortion.

This decision did not end abortion in our country, it just changed it a little. I hope one day we look back on abortion in the same way we currently view slavery: a horrific act that used to be legal but is now thankfully rejected by all good people. I pray for that almost every day.

    Abortion for convienence is murder, but for the life of the mother, rape and incest it should be allowed.
