Thoughts on PRENDA

RE: Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act(PRENDA) of 2017

H.R.147 – 115th Congress (2017-2018): Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA) of 2017

I totally get the moral high road regarding this, yet when it comes to being opinionated over abortion over all, I really don’t feel like it is my place to decide for someone else. Yes of course one would hope that these reasons would never be the “reasons” for wanting one, but what frustrates me honestly about this topic is that if it really were the reason for someone somewhere…. then outside people who would never ever be evolved in the development of that child — would rather decide that that child should instead live, but then suffer a lifetime in the environment of an “irresponsible and immoral” mother who didn’t want them but was forced to keep them.. or if they happened to not “keep them” then have those children live under the state and hope that they get adopted or something.

People seem to want to focus so intently on “abortion” itself because its a hot debate, yet no one seems to want to talk seriously about focusing instead on the things that could alleviate it in the first place. Laws like this won’t really help anything except make people who get offended that someone else somewhere may want an abortion… feel better because that person they likely don’t know — just “can’t”.

This law honestly is incomplete. Its not good enough. If people are pro-life, there needs to be provisioned better systems, made to be able to take care of these children first. If we aren’t serious about investing in these children’s actual lives, then we have no business being opinionated about the issue.
