We don't condone killing of toddlers or teenagers or elderly people who are inconvenient, or expensive. Why are babies different?

Pro Choice not Pro Abortion - an intended choice of words no doubt. All anti abortion legislation should insure that all avenues have been made available to women to receive assistance from youth to adulthood, education, medical and financial, to insure all pregnancies are cared for both mother and baby, and that all babies might come to full term should be the goal.

Only in America is this a political issue. In the rest of the first world it is between a woma n and her doctor. And it is so much more complex than you mako out, but it is good that you are not throwing stones or calling people baby killers. For example 70% of abortions in America are to women who are living below the poverty line, which means they can't afford birth control. 40% are morning after pill. There are about 600,000 abortions in America a year, but there are 248 million abortions in third world. When republicans are in power they cut funding to family planning services (aid) in third world countries. When democrats are in the fund this aid for birth control, which saves 48 million abortions a year. The best way to reduce abortions is by providing sex education, and affordable birth control. There are countries that have one third the rate Americas. They have universal healthcare, which provides free birth control. So America could reduce its number of Abortions from 600,000 to 200,000 a year with universal healthcare, and respect for and support of women.

I love that as members of the LDS church we view life and the ability to create life as sacred. I do however wish that we as a community would take it a step further and be active in helping prevent abortions. There are things such as sex education, health care, and the reduction of poverty- all which reduce abortions. I feel like we have the understanding part down, maybe now we can get the action.
