There is this ongoing social debate over the abortion, and I am pro-life. Before you freak out on me, let me please explain why.
Nobody should feel obligated to take care of a child. I understand that getting pregnant when you are young, not in a committed relationship, or just not ready is a hard thing to deal with and abortion can seem like a way out of a difficult situation.
However, there is an extremely easy way to never have to face these tough decisions. A cure all, nobody has to argue anymore, no emotional trauma or financial burden solution. This cure is called “abstinence”.
I know, right? It’s just so revolutionary.
I know, not really. But, it is true. Just don’t have sex. Wait until you are in a committed relationship, then talk about it to the person. Make sure that if, by accident, you end up with a baby, you will continue to stay together and raise the child together. This is why a legal arrangement like marriage is useful as a line to determine whether or not you should have sex, because in that situation the person would be obligated to participate in raising the child.
And honestly, it is not that hard. I am a college student and I am a virgin. I have had several boyfriends (two for 10+ months), and I’ve told all of them that they will never get anywhere with me sexually because I want to wait until I am married. Most have been okay with it. One said he was but later pushed the line, and I kicked him to the curb. If he can’t wait for me then he doesn’t deserve me and he doesn’t really love me.
If everyone just learned an ounce of self control sexually, then nobody would have to argue about the legality of abortion and its moral implications.
Really, people. Just learn to abstain from sex and keep your pants on and the world could literally be a better place. High expectations create better results. Learn to say no, and take no as an answer.
Also, I invite you to argue with me if you want. I’m lillytheauthor, I’m an 18 year old college freshman at Oklahoma State University studying English and Theater and I will kick your ass in any argument.
