I have not been doing this recently but I feel like it’d be good to have a feedback. Anyways before I would occasionally discuss the issue of pro-life/pro-choice with my left Grandmother who lives in the same house. Anyways I seem to do a good job with discussing the morals to killing a unborn baby however I become stumped at how to answer to this.
After about ten minutes into talking the issue of rape and raped minors in particular comes up. So I’m asked. “And what about rape victims who are only (insert minor age) old?” One thing I resent the most is that she places a senario of if my own little sister was in that position; which she knows will get me on a emotional level. (Just to note my sister is barely one!) so basically since I can not nitpick my beliefs saying “Well it’s different for rape victims”(which is not how I feel but saying the opposite will make me sound like I am willing for twelve year olds to go through pregnancy) in the end I’m defeated and resentful because of these cases which I’m sure is a small percentage of people who have abortions.
Another thing is the fact that it is pro-‘Choice’ in which case I lose my arguements because I’m cornered with the question. “So minors in rape cases have to goe through pregnancy with no other option?”
I’m sorry; I’m sure that their are many threads on this but this is just a personal issue that I need help responding too and would appriecate some feedback
