Letter to the editor: With abortion outlawed, who will take care of the babies?
“Heartbeat ban” is an attempt to outlaw abortion. At least 15 states to date are trying to enact laws that ban abortion as early as six weeks of gestation or when a heartbeat can be heard. Most women don’t even know they are pregnant six weeks into a pregnancy.
My question is, who’s going to take care of all the unwanted babies? Are all those evangelical groups or religious folks going to care for the babies? And who’s going to help the mothers through the pregnancies or after the babies are born?
Single poor mothers get slammed for being on any type of government assistance. No one wants to help them. So now you want them to have more babies because it’s morally right with your religious beliefs? When these women need help, they are criticized and ostracized by the same religious groups or individuals. They are damned if they do have the child and damned if they don’t.
No one religious group has the right to impose its religious beliefs on others. No man, woman or religious group has the right to rule over women’s bodies.
All single males who believe abortion is not morally and religiously right for women should all practice abstinence or get vasectomies. That would put a stop to millions of unexpected, unwanted pregnancies each year.
Yes, I believe what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
