About abortion

Found this on my birth board on I didn't write it but I loved it. I am pro-choice but I don't agree with abortion, however, a woman does have the right to her own body.

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said:

'Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I'm pregnant again. I don't want kids so close together.'

So the doctor said: 'Ok and what do you want me to do?'

She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy, and I'm counting on your help with this.'

The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: 'I think I have a better solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you too.'

She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: 'You see, in order for you not to have to take care of 2 babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we're going to kill one of them, it doesn't matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.'

The lady was horrified and said: 'No doctor! How terrible! It's a crime to kill a child!'

'I agree', the doctor replied. 'But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.'

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.

He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that's already been born and one that's still in the womb. The crime is the same!

Love says, 'I sacrifice myself for the good of the other person.' 
Abortion says, 'I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself.'


  1. I am pro- choice and this concept of abortion = killing a baby really irks me. Its not even close to the same thing. I wouldn't get an abortion myself I think, but I have nothing against it and think it should be a woman's choice. No one else. On the flip side it also really drive me nuts when people equate abortion with birth control. Totally irresponsible.

  2. That's the part that I found so awesome. It was an eye opener for someone trying to use it as birth control. I hope it didn't offend you. I don't wanna lose you as we're going through these pregnancies in the blogosphere together :)
