PLEASE IGNORE THE BELOW WRITING. I HAVE SINCE CHANGED MY THOUGHTS ON ABORTION.
Picture took about 2 hours to complete. I once again am trying different techniques blah blah blah.
About the picture?
Simple. It's about abortion. Now, for those who do not yet know, I am forever a pro life person. I never really have had a chance to express how I really feel about the entire argument, as I'm usually interrupted or ignored, but I think now's a good time to write up a possibly long writing piece about why I think it is wrong.
WARNING: If you chose to read this it means you either agree or are curious about my opinion. If you are pro-choice/ for abortion I suggest you do not read this and do NOT flame me. There is a back button, use it. Nonetheless, this may also contian offensive material. I might also add that all of this is coming from my own words, it is not influenced whatsoever. Therefore, it does not contain any religious-sided beliefs to why abortion is wrong.
First off, what is abortion?
Abortion is the process of "terminating a pregnancy". When a woman has lost desire for the child for any circumstance, there is various procedures of eliminating the baby from the whom, thus killing it, formed or not. They use various appliances and procedures, one of which includes "vacuuming" out the child's brains while still in the whom and taking it out.
There are plenty of health hazards to abortion. I will start off by saying a lot of women who have had abortions are usually emotionally and/or physically scarred for the rest of their life. If they aren't emotionally, they will certainly always have a huge scar across their stomach from it. And as far as I recall, a lot of women would try to avoid those scars. (But this is off topic). I won't deny, though, abortions nowadays would be a whole lot safer than the way they used to be done, especially when it's an illegal one. Still, plenty of women have died during abortions.
Let's not forget the entire baby itself. If you understand, abortion IS terminating the pregnancy. It TERMINATES the baby. That is full murder. There is so much debate about the child feeling the pain or not. "The child is not yet born, therefore it is not a human and it does not classify as murder". That is not true. The fetus is a growing human, we all were one once. The fetus CAN feel pain, especially when it's nearly developed and aborted. Why do you think they cry so much when they come out alive? I've heard some true stories about abortions that make me vomit. Babies are literally thrown in the "bin" once they've been aborted, dead or alive. Every fetus should have a chance at life.
Some people say abortion is okay because it will reduce population control. There are many solutions to population control but abortion is not the answer. The baby did not at all have a choice to enter the world, so why should it pay just because someone doesn't want the extra kid? The people who chose to have 7+ kids and then complain about the world being too populated are just simply idiots. Some people choose to have children, so they must realize that each person contributes to the race.
And if this is not the case, isn't it normal to have children? We obviously were made to breed, and our bodies were obviously made to have more than 1 child. People die, people are born. Although the population is rising, I doubt it'll get to the point where it gets TOO crowded. There is plenty of places in the world. And why don't we think about the infertile people or the gay people? There's probably a billion of them all together anyway. Why do the same people who complain about the world being too populated complain about gays destroying humans because they're lowering the population? That's beyond me. People also say if abortion was legal there wouldn't be so many orphans in the world. Well, that is not entirely true either. There will still be orphans, abortions or no abortions. It would help if the numbers were down, but the problem would never go away. Even a couple that happily had a child could easily die and leave that child alone. Similar to what I said, there are plenty of ways to solve the numbers of orphans but abortion is not the answer.
Some women carry out abortions simple because they do not want the baby or discover they cannot financially care for it or any common reason. Just because of their circumstances, it does not give them the right to kill someone. They say women should have a choice to what they do with their body and they should be able to rid of unwanted baby, but the truth is their real choice was to have sex or not. One thing that gets me is if there's a couple that want a baby and they are half way through the pregnancy and change their minds. A woman in that situation should NOT have the right to rid of the child. Why should the woman be able to kill the child? The fetus has no choice, it waits to be born because it was conceived. However, there are a few exceptions with rape victims. If a woman falls pregnant to rape, it would be emotionally hard to decide betwene abortion or not. However, I think that if this does happen, the child should at least be adopted out. I personally would never abort a baby, even if I got pregnant now (aged 14). Besides, the cases of pregnancies due to rape are extremely rare and the situation should not be completely relevant to a general abortion debate. (That does not mean I don't care for rape victims, I just find it as a secondary issue to the topic). Also, the teenage pregnancies are going higher nowadays. A teenager who gets pregnant should still not have the choice to abort or not. If their pregnancy resulted in a stupid one-night stand, then they must suffer consequences (though I am not saying a baby is a punishment). There are plenty of new contraceptions available besides condoms, even female ones. If you are that worried of winding up as a teenage pregnant and want to instantly abort, take care of yourself and wear a form of contraception. It'll do us all a big favour. Plus, the baby that you could have ended up with will not die inhumanely.
We all deserve a chance at life.
Another issue brought up is disabled humans. Some people think it is alright to abort a child if it is extremely disabled or deaf or even blind. This is a tricky argument to deal with. It is not fair bringing a baby into the world you know will be disabled and make it live its life with the disability. As harsh as it may be, it is still fair to give the baby a go at life. A lot of people with a disability have lived out life happily and in the best way they can. The only time I think it would be alright to abort is if the baby was in enough pain just developing or it was already dying or killing itself and the mother.
Women do have rights nowadays, they deserve equal rights to men. However, they should not have the choice to kill something. People say it's they're own body and such, but they do not consider the fact that they are also deciding the life on someone else's body too. The fetus is still a part of the mother but if it was to be born, it WILL become its own body. Just because it's living off someone else doesn't make it dead or non-pain feeling. Women would be given too many rights if abortion was legalized. If it was legalized, this meant that no matter what the circumstance was (as I said before) the woman would be allowed to abort the baby. A lot of women who did not think ahead would take this legalization to their advantage and abuse their power.
A chance at life
I heard a recent argument saying "If you're pro-life you must be a vegan and against anything death related". This is not true at all. Let me explain this.
I am a pro-life person who eats meat and dairy products alike. I do not agree with the way humans abuse the meat availability (pork, cow, chicken and sheep should be more than enough) but I do understand that meat is something we need to eat to survive. A carnivore in the wild eats other animals. We're animals, it's natural for us to eat the meat. We're omnivore. However, abortion is not a natural process. Get my point? Meat eating is essential; abortion isn't.
There is so much more to discuss and there is so much more on my mind, but I think I better wrap it all up, though I may edit this later.
If you agree with this, feel free to add on what you think I can add to this description. :]
This is freedom of speech, I was not targeting anyone and I mean no harm. Everyone has a right to their opinions. Again, if you disagree, I would actually be curious to your opinions. BUT there is a difference between different opinions and trolling/flaming/attacking.
If you don't agree and don't want to give an opinion, simply enjoy the art and leave :/
Note; I am aware that not many people actually pro-life and will probably think I'm a total idiot for doing this (eve if they don't say it, they'll think it). I don't care if you think I'm an idiot, I expressed my opinion and said what I needed to say.
