Oppose Abortion and Support The Death Penalty, Hypocrite Much?
Alrighty, This is my first post since entering this lovley world of fellow atheists. And well, being a youngster with a shitload of questions- I couldn't help but wonder this morning why the fuck are people against Abortion, yet; they support the death penalty? It just doesn't make any sense that these "pro-lifers" are for killing people? It's like being a feminist, and in the NWWL! (Naked woman's wrestling league).
Okay, Ill admit the obvious: These sick fucks who are sentenced to death are rapists and murder's, and at the result at their own actions. and yes the unborn "child" (fetus) dies from the actions of another. Yeah, i'll admit that the "child" (fetus) has done nothing warranting such a harsh penalty, but technically the baby isn't REALLY alive, right Which means it doesnt feel any pain! Correct me if im wrong , because well I'm no smartass docter but; There is no baby to hurt. First an embryo, then later a fetus! First trimester abortions hapen before cells are specialized. Therefore, there can be no pain because there are no nerve cells. Any pain felt after that would be instantanouess. There's never any conscious pain equivalent to what a child would experience.
Here's my take: I'm pro-choice. And I believe that when used for good intentions abortion is a great tool for a mistake, or put it this way; what if it was your daughter who was raped? Abortion is a good solution, when you have no other choice. And a lot of my middle school friends tell me "Dominique, what about adoption!" well, to that I say look at any orphanage, it ain't like one of those tv/movie orphanage where some ginger bitch is singin "tommorow tommorow i love you tomorrow" No sir, it's hell for most kids. The latest UNICEF numbers for 2008 indicate that there are an estimated 132 million orphans in the world. And as for the good ol' US of A; There are approximately 500,000 children in the United States foster care system. So out of those 500k do you honestly, HONESTLY believe that each and every single one will be adopted? No. These kids will never experience a birthday party at chucke' cheese, public school wearing brand name clothing, their first car, etc. Nah, they'll be in there poor run down little orphanage, Waiting. Hoping. Praying to god that isn't there, that maybe, somone will love them and care for them enough to take them home.
As for the death penalty, I haven't much to say... Aside from the fact that these fuckers don't deserve to take the easy way out and die. They deserve to suffer, and rot in jail.
I'm posting this because I wan't to know what you guys think, How you feel about both.
*Keep in mind that this is my first post and im not that advanced in writing and I'm not Mr. intelligence.*
Please feel free to correct mean in any way, and keep me informed, im here to learn! =D
