Reproductive Rights

eyeseeyouOkay, I am getting weary of hearing about “reproductive rights” and “a woman’s right to choose.”  Get real.  These are just code words.  Everyone knows we are talking about abortion.

We who are “of age” all understand where babies come from, right?  (Clue: storks and cabbage plants are not involved in any way.)  Let me speak plainly: whether or not to “have sex” is every healthy person’s choice, right or wrong.  Men, you have a right to choose whether to father a baby or not.  You choose whether to keep your pecker in your pants or not.  Women, you have a right to choose whether or not to grant male access to your reproductive accessories (not talking about rape here but consensual sexual intercourse).  Whether or not to use birth control is also a right.  But this is where your “right to choose” ends.

What none of us has a right to do is kill babies resulting from a failure to overcome craving with caution.  That’s just murder.  If, in the heat of passion, you choose to forego birth control…well…you may have made a baby you are responsible to care for in utero or out.  You did your choosing before the winning sperm penetrated the waiting egg.

If you don’t want the baby, then choose to give it to one of the thousands of couples who do.
