Abortion advocates perseverate that accessible “healthcare,” A.K.A. abortion services, are essential to preserving female autonomy and freedom. A look at the practical implications of abortion refute this claim. In reality, abortion displaces reproductive responsibility: the child bears the consequences of its mother unintentionally becoming pregnant.
Usually, before a woman gets pregnant, she is in control: she knows whether or not she is taking birth control pills or if her partner is using protection. She knows the possible consequences of failing to take either of these precautions.
Although the mother might have more information at her disposal than her male partner, the father is by no means exempt from responsibility. He should make sure that if the woman isn’t on birth control, he uses protection. If a child is conceived, he shouldn’t abandon his family, just as the mother shouldn’t abort her child.
In the social sphere, abortion damages familial dynamics. Parents have obligations, which include providing for the child. Abortion doesn’t eliminate the parents' responsibilities. The procedure transfers the consequences of the parents’ actions onto the child. A person disregards family values, such as selflessness, if personal accommodation is their moral pinnacle.
When the murder of innocents becomes mainstream, society as a whole is damaged. In addition to the frequent killing of infants, the false idea is perpetuated that no one is worse off if fully-functioning adults dodge the repercussions of their decisions. These parents may be able to avoid the negative ramifications, but their baby that will be aborted will have no escape.
