A wise friend said once, “Preaching to the choir.” I know I am not going to change a persons deeply held belief. I am trying to be civil. I don’t want to disparage and cause division.
I am not using any name calling, pejoratives or name calling and to the best of my ability refrain from cognitive distortions.
“Those anti-abortion say abortionists are killers. This is a glaring real science methodology statistic. First of all are wives tale and false positivisms,
“Time heals all wounds.” No? That is unenlightened, misinformed, and erroneous.
It has been proven by science that 2/3 of children who grow up in dysfunctional households go on for the rest of their lives having trouble in one or more areas.
Areas such as jobs, substance abuse, mental illness and relationships. Who is going to pay for all the treatment of people growing up in a dysfunctional home life?
I haven’t even taken to account outside dysfunction away from the family. School bullying is rampart and especially hard for those coming from rough homes.
I’m generalizing meaning it’s not 100%, The Republican Party doesn’t want to allocate funds for all these children who go on to have difficulties throughout their life times.
So you tell a woman who want an abortion that she is not in charge of her body? Yet you don’t fund social programs to help all of those who according to hard reliable statistics who have had the misfortune of growing up in a dysfunctional home.
Many times the parents themselves had issues and were not fit to be parents. You force victims of rape and incest and teenage pregnancy to have an abortion and then put some of these children into foster care.
The church is outdated. They have doctrines that originated in the Bronze Age BC. Religion has not caught up to new findings.
One of the reasons religious people say God let’s the devil to roam is that we have free will and that he is testing us.
Sorry for this I’d another erroneous assumption and belief. It’s time religion starts accepting fact,
discovery and new understandings and not rely on creeds they are no longer valid as is the case with erroneous free will.
It has been found by scientists that before a person makes a conscious decision, choice or action, that it has already been predetermined at the unconscious level.
How many of those who believe know this objective fact? I am open to people of all beliefs, cultures and persuasions.
If you are a theist I will uphold your right. I don’t care if a person is a theist or non-theist. I look for positive energy in people.
Let’s focus on what we do agree upon and not what we disagree. I don’t have the right to tell people what to believe in or not believe in. What is important to me is do you walk your talk and practice what you preach?
Another generalization is that the far right evangelicals are Republicans. A generalization they are more status quo, rigid and dogmatic.
Well another study tells of those who believe in a just, fair and loving God or universe are in an unconscious manner more judgmental.
‘Belief in a just world’
M.J. Lerner studied the tendency of individuals to believe in a just world. In a just world, good things would happen to good people, and bad things would happen to bad people,
Much of the research into belief in a just world (BJW) centers around developing measures that indicate the degree to which an individual believes in a just world.
A strong belief in a just world increase the likelihood of “blaming the victim” since such a world view denied the possibility of innocent victims.” Source: GRE: Graduate Record Examination, Subject Test: Psychology, 2016
Note: As I said I brought up according to scientific research free will is a myth except autonomic reflex actions.
Those who believe in a just, kind, loving God, universe or Karma are unconsciously more prone to being judgmental.
Anti-abortionists would force women to conceive yet they will not pay out on social problems to alleviate the dysfunctional cycle.
I am an advocate for raising children with nurture, love, and acceptable boundaries. What most people do not understand is that when I am scrolling I see a question posed.
If you could change reality what one thing would you do? To my astonishment and too my disbelief I view readers who say they’d change nothing and the world is perfect.
I am aghast, flabbergasted. The population is too high for this planet. We are destroying natures beauty and bounty with are reckless overproducing of children.
To me an animal our brother and sister animal kin who are alive feel more pain and emotional grief than a fetus.
Yet this world is recklessly overpopulating and decimating the animal species. We are facing the 6th extinction of all life on the planet.
I would rather protect wildlife than unborn fetuses that statistically are not wanted by society and who fall through the cracks of the system.
I want a society that values quality over quantity of children. To do that some people are not cut out to have much less raise a healthy child.
What is more disturbing according to a research resiliency study, a full 2/3 of children growing up in a dysfunctional home go on for the rest of their lives having one or more problems.
Mental illness, substance abuse, jobs and relationships. Generalizing it is generally the Republican branch that are pro-life.
Yet they will not take care of all then children who may have been forced to be born by unwilling women.
They have cut backs and won’t invest money, time and resources with children, education and societal programs to increase the quality life of its citizens.
This is disturbing. In a dictionary sense it is blind ignorance to spouse the Bible and try force innumerable children to have a lifetime of problems all due to bad parenting and existing home life conditions.
They advocate for a fetus to be born. Then they wash their hands of those who suffered and are forced to suffer the entirety of their lives. This is sin, evil, blind and not well thought out. I also think of the irony with the following.
Generally speaking Republicans are pro-life to dogma, yet they are irresponsible for all the children they want to forcefully bring into this life.
Generalization Conservatives are known more as a war party. Liberals are generally described as doves.
So they want to protect an unborn fetus who had no consciousness. Yet they will more willingly go to war and destroy lives in the areas.
Mental health issues of PTSD and physical disability that the American taxpayer has to take care of free of charge by the VA system,
I am a liberal democrat and I abhor war. War is the last resort for anti sane human being and soul.
Not only the trillions of dollars in pursuit of war and taking care of the expenses of the people who have had war negatively affect their lives.
These trillions of dollars could have been put back into society for a he citizens, the children and for increasing the quality of our infrastructure.
I am (generally speaking) the Republicans won’t pay for the children they wished to be born after affects of a dysfunctional life.
The homeless population largest percentage are war veterans. Billionaires won’t pay for societal problems of our American vets on the streets yet they will gladly go to war to make profit in the war industry.
Finally another discrepancy of reason, being rational is the Republicans don’t want reforms on firearms. They will advocate for those unborn. Yet they will not curb their voice and resist effective and reasoned change with the gun lobby.
But they turn a blind eye for all those killed by these weapons on our streets across the nation. All across our country are shootouts and mass murder.
This will continue as long as there is no reform. Countless victims and their family shall be forced to get gunned on a city street.
Instead of protecting babies on a world that is depleting it’s resources and making statistically unwanted children be born.
To make it worse is that the 2/3 children now grown adult will not receive proper treatment because their champions who voiced they should be born.
Then blindly wash their hands and conscious of these serious unaddressed societal problems and issues. Those who grew up in terrible conditions now will get discounted after they turn adult and have problems for the entirety of their life.
Someone who is truly Pro-Life would protect all those that are gunned down. Real, alive, cogent and self aware human beings are not being protected.
There is no reason for assault rifles and automatic weapons being on our streets. They will defend the unborn who is not self aware.
Its more than unfortunate that the unborn have to suffer for the crimes and mistakes of others. There is no easy resolution. We live in an imperfect society. This is an understatement.
There should be education and birth control measures. All I know is the startling statistics that a full 2/3 of children growing up in dysfunctional households then for the rest of their lives have one or more areas of difficulties.
This is problems with relationships, substance abuse, mental illness, jobs. Think of that horror. Then compound it because Pro-Life advocate for the unborn.
They don’t want to fund the social measures to take care of these statistically unwanted citizens when they reach adulthood.
This is not fluffy opinion. This is hard research methodology studies in Resiliency and the 40 Developmental Assets that produce a mentally healthy child with statistically a healthy self esteem.
This is a crime. We force mothers to endure this difficult choice. Maybe Pro-Lifers aren’t aware of these Resiliency studies.
Due to lack of accountability, responsibility and care those that advocated for the young ones life, then turn their back on children who grow up in these conditions when they become adults and need help.
For those who believe in a fair, loving God and universe have been found to be unconsciously more judgmental.
These people unknowingly, and unconsciously stigmatize an army of dysfunctional children who then according to statistics have issues.
This isn’t my opinion. It is a study done by M.J. Lerner. This is on a test to take a graduate exam to become a psychologist. Those who want all the unborn to live help initiate a society where the dysfunctional cycle continues.
I believe children should be raised with love, proper boundaries and nurture. We are imperfect. Continuing this mad dysfunctional cycle is reckless and exhausts the resources of society.
I mean this. is a commendable thing to have a heart and not want abortion. No sane person would.
It is an untenable scenario. Until we put the time; money and resources into our greatest asset which are children, this dysfunction and suffering shall continue.
If you want to end abortion then raise children in quality situations of love, nurture and with proper boundaries.
Raising healthy children will then produce citizens with healthy mental health, good self esteem and successful citizens.
The need for abortion would lesson because we are raising a quality generation of more stable, loving and rational human beings who are less likely to commit crimes against their fellow man.
We would then have healthy children with a head on then to make wiser life decisions. The Pro-Life stance is untenable for the health of the nation. Dysfunction creates dysfunction.
In the meantime continue with education and offer birth control. I agree abortion isn’t wanted.” LightSun
