Did you know that America has the highest abortion rate? Fifty percent of pregnancies are unintended and out of the fifty percent, 4 of 10 will end in abortion. In any given year, there is an estimated 1.21 million abortions in the United States alone. Why do so many pregnancies end in abortion? Being a pro-life, I have heard many excuses as to why abortions are a “Necessary Evil”.
It has been shown that women choose abortion because they fear it will effect future relationships and ruin social standards. They feel that without a child, they will be able to further their education or career. Sadly, children are viewed as a burden rather than a blessing. Adoption is always an option for women who do not want children at this point in their life. I personally know many women who are unable to have children and have happily adopted. There are many solutions to an unwanted pregnancy. Abortion is never the solution.
Next time someone tells you that abortion is a “Necessary Evil,” tell them that there are better ways to handle the situation. Show them the options and help them reach out. Don’t believe the lies behind abortion.
