Little Billy is so annoying, like most cute eight year old’s can be, but today mama just can’t deal with him anymore. So she pulls out a shotgun and blows his head off. While this is more of a strawman more or less of what after birth abortion is, why stop at a few minutes after the child is born. I mean why not just wait until the kid moves out.
We can argue the abortion argument some other time, it’ll give me another blog to write. The idea that once the child is born you can kill it goes against the child self autonomy. As a huge advocate of children’s rights, the right to life is one that they have. Once born they are no longer inside the mother and if she’s not happy, the idea she can just murder them, shows that this mother is a psychopath.
Under an anarchist society, adoption and payment to the mother would be so much easier. Plenty of parents would be willing to pay a wonderful price to have a child in their lives. The rules and regulations that we have now under a state, make even some of the best qualified people to be guardians of said child, unable to adopt for arbitrary reason.
When we value children as property, and not autonomous individuals, talk like after birth abortion is easy. Once we realize that all children have inalienable right, we realize that we can’t ever support after birth abortions, and only something as evil as the state would back something like this.
If you claim to love children, and see them as unique individuals, you should never support this bill. If you see children as property of their parents, then this bill shouldn’t bother you that much, and I really don’t want to call you a friend. Love child, Love life, Peace All.
