Abortion is a choice. I mean I have always grown up thinking it's a choice. That's one thing most people don't understand and have a problem with. Before jumping to conclusions about the topic of abortion, make sure you know at least a little bit of the history!

Making abortion illegal began in the late 1800s. States began passing laws to start making abortion laws. Although different states had different laws for abortion. One reason for this is because they feared it would become overpopulated. There was a case in 1973 called Roe v. Wade, this trial made it legal for women to get safe abortions from doctors that had experience!

The thing with abortion is that it's your choice. Especially with the extremes of if rape, I know for a fact I would not want to carry my rapist baby! Rape is a very traumatic experience for women, and getting pregnant as a result can potentially make it so much worse! When a woman finds out after her attack she is faced with a the choice of either keeping the baby or having an abortion. This is where the abortion becomes her choice, and this is because if she chooses to keep the baby she might not take care of the baby as well as she should. Think about how it would feel if every time you looked at your baby it would bring back all the memories from that traumatic experience and cause you to have PTSD.

Another reason abortion is a choice is that if you are in a life-threatening situation for you and or the baby. As a mother if you already know your child would not have the greatest life due to health issues. It should be your choice to decide whether or not you would want to have your baby or abort your baby. As a mother, you fear that your baby is going to have health issues so if you know right off that bat that your baby is going to be sick his/her entire life you would want the choice to keep the baby or to not keep the baby. Now say the mother has life-threatening health issues and could potentially die having the baby you would want to have that choice to choose if they get an abortion or die having that baby and bringing a new life into this world!

Say you are not ready to bring a child into this world and you get pregnant, then that is a logical reason to get an abortion. You don't want to bring someone else into this world if you aren't totally ready to care for them because in the end, you are just hurting them. It's times like this that call for an abortion because you don't want to watch them suffer through life with nothing because you can't take care of them!

Some might argue that if you aren't ready for a child to give them up for adoption. These people believe adoption is a better choice than ending the babies life before it starts. While others might say don't have sex if you don't want to get pregnant. The people that say this just think it's because they had unprotected sex and got pregnant and don't want to deal with the consequences. Others say just because the baby has a heartbeat the baby should have the choice to live or not. The people that argue this say just because the baby has a heartbeat they should have all the same rights as we do to live or not.

Take a step back for me and look at all the kids sitting in foster care and have nothing. All because you people say adoption is a better choice, well that is not always the case. Adoption agencies have hundreds of kids in them. It's a very long process to even be adopted and it is very expensive.

When people are looking to adopt they want to know the background of the child's life, and if the mother was a crackhead or something then they are not going to want to adopt that child, because they are going to think the baby is messed up and that's why the mom couldn't keep him/her.

The children in the system have hard lives and it's not the easier route most of the time. Once the child reaches a certain age they get kicked out of the system, then what? Oh yeah, that's right they have nowhere to go because no one would adopt them due to their life situations. So no adoption is not the right choice and again it all goes back to being the mothers choice.

Abortion is a very controversial topic, and there is a lot of history that goes back on the topic. In my opinion, abortion is a choice the women should be able to make because there are many different cases that could make her not want to keep the baby. It really is a situation that comes down to making the best choice for the baby. If it's not your body or your baby then it shouldn't affect your life!

18 Bible Verses That Prove God Would NOT Be 'Pro-Life'

Stop using the Bible as an excuse to take away women's rights.

"Abortion is WRONG because God (the highest authority) says so! Not because I say so, or "religious" people say so or the government says so...because the CREATOR OF ALL HUMAN LIFE SAYS SO."

This argument is bullshit and I'm sick of hearing it, because it just isn't true. All these Christians claim that the Bible and God says that abortion is wrong, and it's clear they've never read the Bible. Have you ever seen them use a biblical verse to validate their claims? Yeah, me neither. And you know why? BECAUSE THE BIBLE IS NOT PRO-LIFE. They pick and choose vague verses to attempt to back up these ridiculous claims, completely ignoring the damning evidence that the Bible, and therefore God, actually supports child murder, infanticide, and abortion.

Unlike pro-lifers, I'll actually provide some evidence:

1. Numbers 31:17 "Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him"

2. Deuteronomy 2:34 "And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain"

3. Deuteronomy 28:53 "And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the Lord thy God hath given thee, in the seige, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee"

4. 1 Samuel 15:3 "Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass"

5. Isaiah 13:16 "Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished"

6. Isaiah 13:18 "Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eyes shall not spare children"

7. Ezekiel 9:6 "Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house"

8. Hosea 9:14 "Give them, O Lord: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts"

9. Hosea 13:16 "Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up"

10. 2 Kings 2:24 "And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them"

11. Psalm 137:9 "Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones"

12. Numbers 5:21 "-here the priest is to put the woman under his curse- "may the Lord cause you to become a curse among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell"

13. Hosea 9:16 "Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb"

14. Psalm 135:8 "He it was who struck down the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and of beast;"

15. Psalm 136:10 "-to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt His love endures forever"

16. 2 Kings 6:28-29 "And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow.So we boiled by son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son"

17. Leviticus 26:29 "And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat"

18. Jeremiah 11:22 "Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, I will punish them: the young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine:"


Stop using your religion to try and push propoganda that "God says abortion is wrong because it kills innocent children." Clearly your God doesn't care about killing children. There is more than enough proof that the Bible and God are NOT pro-life. Stop acting like you're good Christians upholding the values of God when you clearly haven't picked up the Bible and actually read it. God doesn't agree with your backwards thinking. Maybe try do your research before spewing your religious bullshit to try and take away women's rights.

When Words Are Not Enough

Sometimes you just need to be.

Life is a roller-coaster of ups and downs. We all desire easy fruitful lives where no one ever dies and no one ever leaves. Instead, we suffer through hardships and great trials that test our faith. These conflicts often leave us worn down and feeling helpless. This is the time when words become a languid breeze, going through one ear and out the other. This is what you should do when words are not enough to satiate the pain you hold in trembling hands.

Focus all your energy into just being. No one expects you to get over the tragedy that occurred in your life, so don't force yourself. Just eat, breathe, and sleep until you feel up to doing normal tasks. Whatever circumstance that has stolen your breath and turned your life upside down won't go a week in a couple of days or a week. Wounds like yours don't go away instantly; instead, they take time and nurturing. Sometimes it's best to keep a sore covered but in some circumstances, know that seeing someone is okay.

These tragedies you face are real, and they try to break down the very substances that make you who you are. Counselors and therapists can help you make sense of the burden you carry. There are many reasons why you might be hesitant to see a therapist, but if the burden you carry becomes too much, a therapist can help you lighten that load.

Know that what you are going through is real and it is tough, but you will make it out on top. You are a survivor and a success story. Every single bad thing that has tried to tear you down hasn't succeeded, and this will be no different. Trust me, your story is not over.
