A ten-year-old Indian girl who is 5 months pregnant after being repeatedly raped by her stepfather had to take her case to court to have the right to an abortion. A panel of doctors decided to give her that right. Did they make the right decision?

Gee. With the internets, that's possible. According to UNICEF, in India specifically the death rate for women in childbirth is better than it used to be at 178 deaths per hundred thousand. India is highly populated with a little over 1.3 billion from what I found. Divide that by 100,000 and multiply that answer by 178 and you end up with 2.3 million women dying in childbirth in India. unicef.in/Whatwedo/1/Maternal-Health Death rate is worse for "adolescents" than grown women apparently. How about a 10 year old who isn't even an adolescent yet? What are her chances? India is one of the worst countries in the world to be a woman.

Just because you don't agree doesn't mean it's a stupid talking point. Some women might willingly die in childbirth for their child to live, especially if the child is a product of a loving relationship. Some men, if capable of popping out babies themselves, might choose the same. Point being, this is a choice no man will ever have to make. A woman chooses go through with a birth that endangers their health, great. That's their choice. It's something else entirely when you give the woman no choice. And it's something else entirely when the woman is just a 10 year old child whose stepfather raped her and whose body can't handle pregnancy and childbirth. If every child is so precious, then why do we have so many children in the US (and all over the world) living in poverty, starving, being molested, and why are there so many children in our foster care system?

political Georgia
05/17/17 3:56 pm

Foster homes do not mean that a kid is any less precious. It is a sign that parents were unable to meet the needs of the child. Either way, a precious life is being ignored by promoting abortion. Terminating an unborn baby is inexcusable.

I think that's pretty semantic. She was forced to have sex with her step dad therefore, she was forced to become pregnant. Yes, her body was performing it's natural process of growing a baby, but I think it takes some Olympic level mental gymnastics to say she wasn't forced to carry the baby. In my opinion, no one should be forced to take care of someone who would die without that person's care if they got in that situation through no action of their own, plus, she could be hurt or killed since she is so young.

I'm not sure how much you know about pregnancy, but simply being pregnant does not equate to the baby directly threatening the life of the mother.

And even so, we're still back to the problem of you morally justifying murdering someone simply because you feel threatened by their existence. That's pretty much how North Korea feels about the entire world.

MrMilkdud

Look, the problem at the core of your argument is that you aren't even really arguing in favor of abortion to save the life of the mother- which is problematic, but for other reasons.

You're arguing in favor of abortion as a pre-emotive action in the event the life of the mother MIGHT be threatened.

I think the only people who really support that brand of barbarism are the alt right, as long as it's in regard to missiles pointed at brown, non-Americans, and people who support abortion at any time for any reason.

Women under 15 are FIVE times more likely to die than those over 20

I could cite all sorts of crime statistics that demonstrate certain types of people (by race, socioeconomic status, etc) tend to commit murder more often.

Does that mean I should be allowed to pre-emptively kill them in the name of self defense?

Of course not. Similarly, those statistics only show that a risk may be present in some cases- it doesn't make the case that we should assume every pregnancy is a threat.

It also doesn't support the position that murdering the child is the only way to deal with problems that might arise.

HammeringMan Gods Away On Business

In a complicated pregnancy where it is clearly an "only one can survive" case, would you chose the mother or the child or would you let them both die to avoid having to make that challenging choice?

MrMilkdud
05/17/17 9:28 pm

In reality, such cases aren't represented by the statistics you listed.
There are no emergency conditions where the only way to save the mother is to actively kill the child.
The closest thing you could claim would be something like an ectopic pregnancy- but in that case, there is actually zero chance the child will live. And even then, abortion isn't the recommended treatment. Removal of the Fallopian tube is, and the death of the child is considered a secondary effect, not a deliberate abortion.

The pro-abortionist attitudes all comes from those who have been born as well. "You are a man" argument isn't very strong. It only makes an excuse for the tragedy of losing a human life. As I have said, I have the greatest sympathy for the 10 year girl, but that is no excuse for murdering an unborn baby.

A 10 year old can die in child birth or end up with life-altering health problems (not including the mental health issues she will have for life). I can't understand the mentality that in all cases an unborn baby's life is always more precious than that of the mother, especially in this case in which the mother is a child herself. But then the baby is born and many of these same "pro-life" people don't support social services to help the very babies they feel were so precious pre-birth.

Forcing a 10 year old to give birth may as well be considered murder when she dies on the table.

"can die"

An abortion definitely kills. If your argument and reasoning is based upon which would scenario has a higher possibility of more people living, you should be against abortion because abortions automatically kill a human life.

Rather the fetus be aborted than risk two deaths. One of which is only 10.

The responses here aren't surprising though. How many of you don't believe that an unborn baby is a human?

That matters not when talking about the life of a ten year old rape victim.

Oh...please show me statistically how often a woman dies during child birth.

Do you believe an unborn baby is a human life?

Girls under the age of 15 have five times the maternal mortality rate of those over 20.

TEN YEARS OLD!

Stop being a monster.

I'm the one promoting life. How am I the monster? You are the one who would willingly give an abortion pill to a 10 year old.

There's a 1 in 5 chance they both die.

100% chance that 1 dies if an abortion is performed. You do the math if your reasoning is based on probability.

So youre totally Cool with giving an innocent girl and her child only slightly better than a coin flip to live just so you can maybe save the kid?

I'm not for murdering an unborn baby. It is entirely possible that both will survive.

Gee. With the internets, that's possible. According to UNICEF, in India specifically the death rate for women in childbirth is better than it used to be at 178 deaths per hundred thousand. India is highly populated with a little over 1.3 billion from what I found. Divide that by 100,000 and multiply that answer by 178 and you end up with 2.3 million women dying in childbirth in India. unicef.in/Whatwedo/1/Maternal-Health Death rate is worse for "adolescents" than grown women apparently. How about a 10 year old who isn't even an adolescent yet? What are her chances? India is one of the worst countries in the world to be a woman.
