Its sad of course , but i would rather see 10,000 abortions than 10,000 unwanted children brought into the world to have an unhappy life.
Try telling that to a devout Catholic. Oops, I did it again, I mentioned it.
Or, you know, to anybody at all who finds the habit of sticking a blade and a vacuum into someone and wiping out what would have been a human being (regardless of when you feel life effectively begins -- it still would undoubtedly become a human being) because some other human beings were dumb enough to behave in such a way as to bring into being that future human being that they didn't want.
British must be crazy to do such things and even pay for that.
Yes, paying for the healthcare of the citizens of another country is crazy; absolutely agreed, but that's another topic.
There are more than 10,000 people who would adopt this "unwanted" child and give it a far better home than the parents can even imagine.
Probably, but almost as big of an issue is that the would-be parents don't want to be bothered in the short term in addition to the long term.
Not a solution. Sorry.
To the problem of abortion, no. Is it a better solution to an unwanted pregnancy? You'd have a hard time gaining support from reasonable people that it isn't a better solution.
