I've gotten into a lot of discussions about abortion, religion, Love, god, and plenty of other 'hot' topics over the years. My views have changed with my understanding as I've grown. I've decided to throw out there what I consider the best possible way to 'end' abortion but still leave it up to choice. It's not a walk in the park, but it's a start.
We need to change the way we educate people, not by shoving 'murder' in their face and resorting to arsen and killings to get our point across. We are all here to guide people in our understanding of reality, not force it down their throat by use of force; and that is exactly what labeling abortion "Murder" does.
If we actually cared and loved these people as, every religious figure head teaches us to do (above all other things); and as science has come to acknowledge as the best thing for our bodies and mind, then we'd act like it.
"It is what it is;" a personal decision between you and your chosen deity and/or spiritual leaning and scientific understanding. The only people that the decision effects is the mother, father and loved ones. Not you, not me. So we have no business telling them what to do. If we are included in on the discussion, as many religious figures have taught over and over, we are to meet them with love and understanding before anything else. Anything. We may not agree with their decision, but it is not ours to make. For who are we to judge? And more importantly, who are we to meddle in the affairs of god? If we were loving these people we would respect their privacy like we would expect ours to be respected, and we wouldn't be privy to any of this information to judge them on in the first place.
So if we meet them with 'murderer' and lock them away with rapists and drug dealers, human traffickers and the all dreaded "possession" inmates, and shame them; they will go and find darker more private ways to do what they want to do and/or feel is right; and this goes for any attempt to prohibit anything from a person, even killing for pleasure. There is no law made by man that can stop someone that has their heart and mind set on something they believe in. I believe suicide bombers are a great example of this conviction, no? So this kind of act will continue no matter how you try to "outlaw" it and the harder people push to remove it by force, the uglier and nastier it will get.
But if we meet the problem (any problem) with love and understanding; the anger, the hate, the judgement all melt away from both sides and learning can happen; threw learning and growing no one loses.
If we educated people like that, things would be different; within a generation if we took it all to heart, we would be able to find peace on earth and good will toward men if we'd all just learn how to love without critical judgement or condemnation.
So we can either continue trying the old fashion way and see what kind of dark path that will take us down. Or we can start educating people and come to find that adults will behave like adults, and children will be children, but we'll all realize we're on the same boat, and heading in the same direction; and low and behold it just won't be so bad after all.
Abortion will give way to adoption and everyone will be happy. But a mind will never be changed through force, only through understanding and Love.
