Transcript Abortion Politics Pro-lifers escalate to control Issue People show indifference, antagonism, anger or embarassment, but most choose to ignore the unpleasant truth about abortion. It's an issue that has bitterly divided our country in a political war between the freedom-of-choice groups and the right-to-life activists. Contrary to popular belief, the "freedom of choice" slogan used by pro-abortionists hardly represents a freedom of choice. No one looks forward to having an abortion. Instead, legalized abortion is a tool for the manipulation and exploitation of women, especially by some boyfriends, husbands, friends and other societal pressures. No other "legal right" degrades a woman's sexuality or self-esteem like abortion. Women need to know that abortion is not their only choice and that it can be an unsafe procedure with unhealthy physical and psychological after-effects. Abortion leaves permanent emotional scars. The guilt, insecurity and lack of self-esteem that can arise following such a procedure is extremely painful for any woman. A woman will feel the consequences of her decision within a few days, if not immediately, after the abortion. Those scars include unexplained depression, physical and emotional abandonment, intense feelings of guilt that may lead to suicidal thoughts and abnormal changes in maternal instincts. Giving a child up for adoption is an alternative many never consider. Statistics show that the demand for babies is high. The waiting lists are so long, many adults are hiring lawyers or using various forms of advertising in search of an adopted child. Adoption is the best choice available for the young unwed mother who cannot care for nor afford a child. Support groups and care programs are available, as well as financial aid for mothers giving their children up for adoption. I am adopted, and I believe my natural mother made the most caring and unselfish decision of her life. Because of her choice, I have been able to lead a satisfying life with my adopted family. I cannot understand those who believe adoption is cruel punishment for a child. Taking away the gift of life seems a far worse punishment than placing a child in the home of parents who have eagerly awaited for months, possibly years for a "chosen" child. One should take these thoughts under careful consideration before deciding the worth of an unborn baby. We are all valuable persons at every stage of our lives, just as much as we were at conception. The answer to a woman's problems is not the death of her child. In most circles, this solution would be considered murder. Some people don't see a difference between the front page story of the gruesome murder of a six-month- old child and abortion.-Cynthia Vance MARCH FOR LIFE-Pro-life demonstrators urge abortion seekers to consider adoption as an alternative .Photo by Ed Huber.
