Next time you say you’re pro-life, imagine this:
You’re a 17 year old female college student living on campus. Your roommate is just another female student you have nothing in common with. Your school takes up 38 hours a week, next to that you have a minimum wage job of 15 hours a week. Even though you have a job, you still need to think twice about getting that $3 cup of coffee every once a week.
Your exams are nearly there. You need to focus really hard on school so you drop a sport or stop going out every Friday night. You and your boyfriend spend less time together. You make the times you do see eachother count. However, you always use protection in bed. Unfortunately, one tragic day, the condom breaks. What do you do? Your medication doesn’t allow the morning after pill. You hope everything goes well. It doesn’t.
You’re 5 weeks pregnant. Your boyfriend can’t handle the stress of being a father at the age of 17-18 so he leaves you. The fucking coward. You’re left alone, on campus, with school, a job, and pregnant.
You have a history with depression. Due to you being pregnant, you can’t take your antidepressants anymore and, with the arrival of winter, slowely start to feel worse. You haven’t told anyone about you being pregnant yet; but your boss sees your attitude with work and fires you. You are now left without income, on a college campus, with a roommate. During the time you’re pregnant you can’t look for another job. If your parents can’t lend you any money you end up without housing.
7 weeks. You’re pro-life, right? So abortions are out of the question. In the mean time, because you lost your job, your boyfriend left you, got immense student loans and still do that 38 hours/week of school, you’re depressed. You’re seeing therapists but nothing works. You can’t pay for medication. You can’t pay for housing. You can’t pay for school anymore. You end up with your parents, but they’re poor and can’t afford to let you live with them again. You end up on the streets. You only see one way out; taking your own life. Next day, you wait near the train tracks, and once you see something coming you take your own life.
What do you rather want? Removing a few lifeless/dead cells or someone taking their own lives? Remember; abortions are simply dead cells being removed. Those cells are just as dead as hair or dead skin. Next time you get your hair done, remember ‘you just killed a baby’ because it’s not fucking alive. Fuck pro-lifers.
