  • I am tired of seeing all of these parallels between abortion, gay marriage, gun control or anything else. I wish people would realize that abortion is not an issue of morality or safety, it's entirely an immoral issue focused on societal survival.
    Where gay marriage is a civil rights issue and gun control is a public safety question, abortion is and always has been about ending a life before it has a chance to live, or giving it a chance with the odds almost always entirely stacked against it. In either case, there is no "right" or "just" choice. Both are terrible choices and to think otherwise is simply plain ignorant. There is no middle ground for abortion.
    Gun control might have a solution, gay marriage's solution is simple (just don't care about who has a ring on their finger!), but there is no win-win for abortion.
    Please, please stop paralleling abortion to anything else like it's an actual comparison! You simply cannot morally justify it. Abortion needs to stop being a moral question and needs to start being a question of societal survival; do we even have the resources to support the unsupported? — Lyra Elyssa Sophia Sinclaire, Medford
