i call myself greedy, selfish, whatever. If my girlfriend was pregnant, i would want her to get an abortion (as she would as well). Just because i submit to being whatever negative adjective i name, does not mean that i think abortions should be illegal (as i said in my previous post). I am greedy for doing so, and i take advantage of a loophole in legality when i would make an effort to see to it that an abortion, and murdering, would happen.
I think getting an abortion is selfish and acting in bad ethics again, but that does not mean that i would not want for one to happen. I am selfish in that regard, simply put, as i think all who get abortions are in the end. Just because i use a not-so elegent adjective to describe what an abortion is, does not mean that i pro-life in all. I think we are murderers, but i do not see that as a bad thing. Brand me an animalist.
It seems that people want the most positive light to be put on abortions, or else they feel they are being bad ethically. I think they go to lengths to avoid thinking it is murdering, etc. But, in the end i think they just avoid blame so they can feel good inside about what they have done. I just thought i would say this bit, since it seems like people tend to think me naive, when really i have thought about this before and have had many close encounters with this sort of thing. I embrace all the negatives that come with my actions, i do not just hold some unrealistic standard.
in response to sang cheon, i will always call it selfish. So, i do know. If a girlfriend of mine tells me she is pregnant, and we decide to get an abortion for her, that does not take away the fact that we are being selfish and making decisions for the baby. The negative adjectives remain, but we choose to go forth. Just because i may be in the situation someday will never change the fact that i think it is selfish. I do know, and what i know is that no matter what it will be selfish and murdering, but i am ok with that because of the person that i am. If one wishes to change their previous ideas about something, then i hope they have reason rather than just having the situation hit home for halos to be handed out to them. Pity or sympathy is never an accepted form of payment for the Halo Hotel, in my opinion.
Long messages do not equal aggravation of any sort,
rather they reflect nothing more than a response of insight
that should always be read in a matter-of-fact tone.
