Trying to raise my kids the best I can

Abortion continued

Tonight I had a very indepth conversation with a young man who says he's had several women abort his babies because he wasn't ready to be a father. I posed him the theoretical question: if they wanted to put up the baby for adoption would you have a problem with it? Like all men I know who ask for abortions, he claimed he would NEVER EVER put his child up for adoption. And I quote "That would be wrong". I just don't understand that thinking - that it's ok to kill your baby, just don't give it to a loving family to raise.

Anyway, of course I asked about using protection and he said that he doesn't use it, doesn't like it, and like most young men, just doesn't think too much about consequences in general. I thought I planted a good seed when I told him to consider that one of these days he will get a girl pregnant who can't be talked into an abortion. That thought shook him up a bit. He said he was going to go home and call a recent fling to make sure that she isn't pregnant. I told him that he needs to be more careful about who might end up being the mother of his child.

Here is a link to a story that broke my heart of a girl who died from an abortion.
