"Because it's growing in her body, she is the one both taking the risks and living with the physical and psychological consequences, many of which are irreversible."
"The consequences are far greater and more irreversible for the baby being brutally torn apart."
Really late-term term abortions, which is what you are referring to, are really rare and are only carried out if there is a severe threat to the life of the woman or the foetus has serious congenital problems.
What do you think should happen instead? Would it be more moral to let the woman die? If the baby has severe congenital problems, should the woman be forced to give birth to a baby that will suffer so she can likely watch it die? What would you do?
"There are a multitude of reasons that aren't just 'inconvenience', financial considerations are a big consideration. It's not as easy as just giving a child up for adoption."
"And why should that be more important than the life of a human being?"
Because it avoids unnecessary suffering.
"You are ignoring the expense of pregnancy, the medical expenses, the physical and psychological repercussions, strain on the relationship etc"
"Indeed, because human life has infinitely more worth than that."
So a drug-addicted woman, rather than have an abortion in the first few weeks by taking a pill, should continue with her pregnancy. Eventually giving birth to a drug addicted baby, screaming in agony from withdrawal symptoms, brain damaged from alcohol damage?
If the baby survives, if will be abused and beaten by the Mother and her boyfriend for screaming, it will be starving and malnourished from neglect.
Even in the unlikely event of rescue, the child, brain damaged and traumatized, will be passed from home to home by people who cannot cope with their needs.
The woman did the right thing though, right?
Even if the child is damaged and traumatized and unbearably starved of love and affection, likely eventually taking their own life. They had value, nobody recognized it or appreciated it, but they had value, and according to you, that's what's important?
This is not written from a place of anger, I am perfectly calm, it is written from an informed perspective. I have friends who are foster parents, I've seen programmes about drug addict Mothers and heard the disturbing screams of newborns in heroin withdrawal.
I've read accounts of foster parents who talk about how deeply damaged children within the care system are.
