Abortion is Exactly This...

I found this jewel located in the comment section of Military shifts on reproductive health:
Abortion is exactly this: The option to ignore the reproductive consequences that are inherent to sexual activity so that you can live a life free of the responsibilities of rearing a child. Secular philosophy had morphed sexual intercourse into something that should be done prior to any sort of commitment between a man and a woman. It is now just a game, that most adults are fully aware their children will participate in at an early age, and can't find it within themselves to intervene.
Couldn't we substitute a wide range of procedures in the above? Let's try one for fun:
Coronary bypass surgery is exactly this: The option to ignore the cardiac consequences that are inherent to inactivity so that you can live a life free of the responsibilities of eating healthy. Fast food philosophy had morphed eating patterns into something that should be done prior to any sort of commitment between eating right and your body. It is now just a game, that most adults are fully aware their children will participate in at an early age, and can't find it within themselves to intervene. So instead, they buy that 25 cent bag of chips instead of the 99 cent mango.
ALL activities have consequences. As we are an advanced species, we are able to control the possible outcome of a variety of things in our lives, especially as technology continues to advance. If you don't want a child, should you be forced to have one? I think not. To me, this is the highest form of being considerate and "thinking of the children." If you want to have sex, should you be limited from engaging because of the possibility of conceiving a child? Only if you want to reserve sex for the married....because sex is so special, that you should wait until you are married! (At least that is what some try to convince the youth, and themselves!) I wonder what the problem is then, that when surveyed, married persons report sex is worse than what non-married persons report? And why are men and women stepping outside of their marriages for sexual fulfillment? Oh yes, sex addiction. But how do you have sex addiction when you don't enjoy sex with your husband or wife, but you have no problems with other men or women? Selective sex addiction?

For there to be an issue with secular philosophy, one must subscribe to the notion of the nonsecular. But what if you don't participate in any religion, do these rules about limiting sex apply? I wonder why people assume that everyone has the same convictions. I can't help but to stand behind the statement--
if you don't like abortion don't have one.
But we need to add, if you are against anyone else choosing abortion for their situation, support their pregnancies with monetary funds and on-call emotional and physical support. After the pregnancy, continue to provide that support for the child and mother until age of legal maturation. Welfare isn't enough and child support just doesn't cut it. Use your resources to realize the potential of these wouldhavebeen aborted babies so that they may all become the next Barack Obama. We can virtually eliminate welfare if you will agree to use your private funds.

Until such a time, I am very impressed that women in the military, as spouses and members, have access to these services. When men and women are around each other, regardless of religious standpoint, they tend to wanna fuck. Unfortunately, not everyone uses protection or birth control...especially those damn married folks! If you haven't noticed, military families at the beginning pay grades with at least more 2 children qualify for WIC and foodstamps...so you're already subsidizing stuff for them. These families also function (for lack of a better word) in high stress environments where there is a lot of domestic and sexual violence. Why not save the children, and let them remain unborn when they are unwanted?
