Abortion needs to be legal. There is no need to bring more unwanted kids into the world. The republicans want us to have a stroke over a clump of cells and be happy when babies are thrown into dumpsters, born to drug addicts, born into financially unstable homes, born to single mothers who can't handle themselves let alone a kid, and be happy when unwanted kids suffer in every way do. Lets not care about kids in foster care or up for adoption. Lets not care about the kids who suffer all the abuse and never recover from it. As someone who suffered A LOT from my parents, I can honestly say, I should have been aborted or given up for adoption. I haven't recovered from all the abuse, and with how long its been since it happened, I know I never will. Its not even emotional damage only. When those pieces of shit died everything was left to me. My aunts and uncles stole everything I had and that was left to me and what they didn't steal was robbed by the local crack heads. 2 houses, land, a big ass garage, a barn, cars, an at home library full of books, antiques, etc. I was tossed around a couple times. I can't recall ever living anywhere stable or for longer than 2 or 3 years at a time. I was homeless at 16. Been homeless more than once. I have woke up at 12 am in a puddle of rain on a 39F night. I have dealt with a lot of shit. I can trace the blame back to my parents and relatives. Now, because of the brainless republicans we have destroying our country, more will suffer a similar fate that I have, unless we undo the damage they have done. It isn't just me who has suffered. My sister has suffered, at the hands of my dad, her dad, our mom, and countless others both relatives and non-relatives. The stories of parents sexually abusing their kids or selling their kids bodies to others to sexually abuse are real. They do happen. Many bad things happen to kids. Shouldn't we be trying to make adoption easier, improving the conditions of foster homes, and doing things to help kids who are here and alive? Banning abortion will not make people who want kids have more kids. All it will do is make those who don't want kids, or can't raise them, or will abuse them, have them.
