Take it for what it's worth and enjoy!
I have a solution to this problem that I think people could really get behind, especially Cecile Richards and Planned Parenthood. Now my plan is already partially in place, however extremely limited, so just know that I’m proposing a minute extension of abortion where it is legal until the child turns 18. Federally abortion is legal up to 24 weeks into the pregnancy for the average pregnancy, however women carrying a rape baby or who bare the risk of death are extremely lucky because they can have the highly safe and legal medical procedure in a state of the art clinic, which has no hospital admitting privileges, pretty much up to the day the child would be born, with absolutely no possibility of complications.
Extending the opportunity to kill a child until the age of 18 is highly moral and ethical because whether the child is inside or outside the womb, a large clump of cells is still a clump of cells. Plus the child is still fully dependent on their parent or guardian until the age of 18. Regardless if a child is in the womb or not parents are still required to provide nourishment and shelter. If it’s legal to kill the child in the womb how is that any different than outside the womb? Also the child is still developing whether they are in the womb or are under 18. Even the government doesn’t find a child competent enough to be given true citizenship responsibilities until they are 18. Not only that but it would also eliminate the foster care system, in which children are often abused then thrown out into the world as an adult, completely unprepared.
Now obviously it would be extremely financially beneficial for parents to be able to kill their children at any point as long as they are under 18. On average it is estimated to cost $13,000 per year, per child. Imagine how much money parents could save if they just simply got rid of that middle child they never pay attention to anyway.
There is another benefit for parents that can even include their employers. Many businesses offer Employee Assistance Programs to uphold the mental stability of their employees. Many parents say that supporting their children causes them great stress, and that the teenage years are the hardest. If a parent could kill their child as soon as they become too unruly, difficult, or expensive they could get rid of the problem right away, saving them and their employers money.
It is truly in the best interest of all families, businesses, this nation, and Planned Parenthood to allow parents to take honorable, courageous, and selfless action and kill their child under the 18 for whatever reason they deem necessary. This solution will solve more problems than I can list in this modest proposal. I truly hope congress is able to pass a measure as such without thoroughly reading it.
