What do these statistics indicate. Do they indicate an environment of affection and respect in the relationships that brought the pregnancy about? What are the unintended consequences of tampering with the processes of life with such impunity as abortion?
The promoters of abortion on demand will guard quietly the situation that led to the desire to end the pregnancy. They are simply called unintended pregnancies and any moral implications are ignored. These moral issues have a deep impact on society, even when the cause is denied or ignored.
The other compiler of statistics is Planned Parenthood and we know they are not neutral or a willing provider of out of wedlock abortion statistics. How can people say that a fetus isn't viable or human when they are selling its organs to treat other humans.
We do know that very few abortions are the result of rape or incest, although that number surely rises as people become more coarsened in the pursuit of misguided sexual activity. The activists imply that abortion is needed to take care of these situations. They insinuate the poverty of the mother or the unwanted child for failure to use proper birth control. The poverty is only a problem when the mother is unhealthy or using drugs as the children could be adopted and much expense born by the adoptive parents.
It is not esteemed as an act of intimate bonding based on committed long term relationships in marriage. Yet those that have experienced long term commitment do know of its validity. So much depends on the culture we want to create. Is it one of love and stability or instability attached to brutality and abuse which abortion is.
This establishes a foundation for future abuse and depression is often developed around broken relationships. Self esteem can be doubted as drugs and alcohol are brought into the mix as one form of a coping mechanism as they seek relief from their troubled life.
These most often occur in unstable environments beginning with ignorant attitudes or lack of understanding as to how their sexual involvement would create such feelings of hostility. The same is true with divorce. If we had a standard of not engaging in sexual relationships when it is not appropriate most of these consequences can be avoided.
We should not listen to them. A legal and safe abortion to be prescribed by competent medical practitioners is all that should be available when it is determined that the physical or mental health of the woman is imperiled. Carrying a child to term and adoption are much better options for the situations where abortion is now often used. http://www.numberofabortions.com/
