Pressured, by whom?
CHILDREN have rights. Children also have a birthdate, they breathe and feel and think.
Embryos don’t have rights, as they are not legally alive. Fetuses have some rights, more and more as the pregnancy progresses, and once they can sustain life outside the womb (week 22 now), they have more rights to that womb than the woman has. Only when the woman’s health is threatened can a pregnancy be terminated after week 21, in most countries (and it’s not called abortion then, but a premature birth).
It’s not an ideology. It’s a human right.
CHILDREN are often a problem. They need food and clothes, which cost money. They need care and training and education, which takes time and effort, and also money. You should be certain that you can provide for a child, before you bring one into the world. With disabled children, extra love and care, training, education and money are going to be necessary, and not all parents feel able to provide that.
An embryo around the time most abortions happen is too small to “hack to pieces”. It’s about the size of a plum.
What you are thinking of is probably “late-term abortion” which is EXTREMELY rare, and only done when there is a serious problem with the fetus, which will kill the woman, the fetus or both. The procedure is done to at least save one of them.
Abortion is like a menstruation or a miscarriage. As embryos don’t have a functioning nervous system, they are not able to feel anything. The cruelty mankind pepetrated on innocent children before abortions were safe and legal, was much more gruesome and heartless. Unmarried pregnant women were sent to nuns in far-away convents to have their children and work off the “debt”, and then forced to leave without the children. The children were either adopted away, starved to death or killed in some more direct fashion.
It’s not just convenience, it’s realizing that you won’t be able to care for a child properly. Many already have as many children as they can properly care for. Then the most humane thing to do is to remove it before it develops a nervous system.
We jump up and down if someone harms a baby too. Quite a few anti-choice people have been found doing just this. Either through abuse, malnourishment, lack of love and affection, or through molestations, refusing to provide proper healthcare or vaccinations. And yes, this is S-I-C-K!
