I’m pro-choice. Why should I support Care Net?
It is equally sensible and logical for both pro-life and pro-choice people to support the work of our pregnancy centers.
The core of the pro-choice argument is that women should have the ability to exercise their free choice about what they do with their own pregnancies. So, once a choice has been made by a pregnant woman, a pro-choice person should be equally supportive of whichever choice she made for herself. That of course implies that if a woman chooses to keep her baby, then pro-choice people are just as obligated to support her in her decision as pro-life people are.
What we do is make sure that women have all the information they need in order to make fully informed choices about their pregnancies. Through a variety of services, pregnancy centers support hundreds of thousands of women and men every year who are making pregnancy decisions. Abortion clinics on the other hand, are only providing services to support the abortion choice. Abortion clinics and Planned Parenthood clinics provide little to no support to women who choose life. For example, Planned Parenthood provided 323,999 abortions in 2015, but provided adoption support only 2,024 times.
When women are fully equipped to make their choice, they are satisfied with the care they receive. So, if a pro-choice person is interested in supporting women who freely choose life, then pregnancy centers and organizations like ours are a natural place for them to lend their support.
Isn’t abortion a political issue?
It is more accurate to say that abortion has become politicized to the advantage of those who want to maintain the status quo of relatively unfettered access to abortion in the United States. It is a tactic to silence any debate or discussion on abortion.
Certainly, every issue has a political aspect to it, but too many people (including, notably, church pastors) have become afraid to speak out against abortion because of their fear that it is “political,” and therefore a topic to be avoided.
But there are other dimensions to abortion that we should weigh more than its political dimension.
For example, abortion is medical; and it is a medical procedure that involves documented risks. It would not be appropriate to consider heart surgery “political” and therefore off limits to discussion or debate. We should think of abortion in a similar way.
Abortion is also a moral issue. The dictionary defines morality as “a particular system of values and principles of conduct, especially one held by a specified person or society.” Certainly making a choice about whether or not to terminate a pregnancy would be covered under such a definition, especially as science continues to affirm the humanity of the unborn [eg, the fetus has a heartbeat as early as 22 days -- perhaps as early as 16 days -- after the pregnant woman’s last menstrual period (LMP)].
So, if you have been silenced by someone who has told you that abortion is a political issue or if you have silenced someone using this argument, then consider these other aspects of abortion that warrant a continued dialogue about this critical topic – a dialogue that considers the medical and moral aspects of abortion.
