"Society does not need more children; but it does need more loved children. Quite literally, we cannot afford unloved children - but we pay heavily for them every day. There should not be the slightest communal concern when a woman elects to destroy the life of her thousandth-of-an-ounce embryo. But all society should rise up in alarm when it hears that a baby that is not wanted is about to be born." ~Garrett Hardin
Abortion is such a hot issue, and it's so hard to persuade someone who already stands on one side. But the people that fight for or even against abortion are missing the point. I think that there should be more loved children in this world.
When someone has sex it is not always for a kid, lots of the time it is for pleasure. Most of the time a woman goes into an abortion clinic is not because they want to murder their baby, but because they feel they can't take care of it, meaning it will be unloved.
People need to realize that having sex should not be for pleasure; it should be because you truly love that person, and therefore you should love anything that comes out of it. But some people don't, and that is not the child's fault.
Like the quote said, the world does not need more unloved children. There are so many orphanages that have kids that don't know what love is. There are so many kids that go home everyday, to a house that if they say one word, they get beat to the point of bruises, and even scars, because their parents don't love them, or care about their feelings.
One thing a child needs when growing up is love, without love, children grow up and continue to not love. They keep living a life full of hatred and violence, because they do not know how to love. An unloved child is a child missing out on the true meaning of life.
