It would have been good to have information about Abortion Recovery for women who had to face the choice they had already made. Those women may just now be realizing what they did. If you have had an abortion and would like to talk to someone check out the info on the Choices website. Or if you are pregnant don't know what to do. Check it out.
I think when women are being told it's not a baby and it's only a blob of tissue and they are buying that lie, they need to see the pictures so they can see the truth before they are feeling their baby being ripped out during the abortion. I think the men (or boys as they may be) need to see as well so they can see the truth that it is a baby and not just a blob of tissue that they helped create so they won't try to pressure the girl they got pregnant into having an abortion. If you can't take care of your baby or if it is too much of an inconvenience, there are lots of women who can't have children who would love to adopt.
As for the woman who is raped, I don't see how ripping her baby out of her body is going to prevent more suffering. Sure she has been stripped of her dignity, but how is she going to feel when she realizes she has just killed her own child. There is an increased in depression among women who have had abortions. I have 3 children and I can not imagine loving them less if one of them were to be a child conceived in a rape. I couldn't live with myself if I killed my own child just because they were created in a violent way. They are still my children regardless of how they are conceived. Every child is a blessing.
I am a city resident, but I work with low income families who do not live in the Chattanooga City limits. We tell those families, some of which can't read well enough to help their children learn to read, that they can check out books or books on tape to help their children for free at the public library. What are those families going to do when they are already struggling to pay for necessities if we then try to charge them for checking out books at the public library? Also people who live outside city limits shop inside city limits and pay city sales tax as well.
