Pregnancy is not a sin. Society should not condemn and pressure an unmarried mother into an abortion, but should help and support her. No matter what one’s view of sex outside of marriage, clearly pregnancy per se is not wrong. It is not a moral, but a biological reality. Society should not treat the mother as a “bad girl” or pressure her to “solve her problem” by aborting her child. Rather, it should love her and help her through the pregnancy and the post birth options available to her. Society should affirm a woman for not taking the “easy out” of abortion to preserve her image and avoid some inconvenience; but at the cost of someone’s life. Whenever I see an unmarried woman carrying a child, my first response is one of respect. I know she could have taken the quick fix without anyone knowing, but she chose instead to let an innocent child live.
