Very true. And don't get me started on what is wrong with parenting these days, because I may blow up my computer mid-type from how upset it gets me. The attitude is horrifying to say the least.

I know there are plenty of people who weren't taught properly, but in this day of extreme information, at least in this country it's impossible to live your life to sexual maturity and not at least hear about birth control. But there are too many kids and not enough people spreading useful information for it to sink in.

However, it's not all lack of education that leads to those girls I mentioned in the last paragraph of my comment. There is also an attitude of apathy that says, hey, who cares? The people I've known like that did not have the excuse of parents who did not raise them to know better; they simply did not give a damn one way or the other about themselves or their potential children.

I do agree with your last paragraph; it is up to us to try and make a difference firsthand by teaching our kids better. Some people (who upset me greatly) say that because I don't believe in abortion or that I have Christian beliefs I'll brainwash my kids into thinking it's better to have eight kids and as many STDs than to have an abortion; no. I will teach them what I believe, but also how to be smart enough to make choices for themselves. If all I did as a parent was raise my kid to be a clone of me and have no ability to think for themselves, then I failed.

Well, we ARE talking about the human race here, who rather use the internet for fart jokes and games than gaining knowledge.

About apathy: maybe, but from firsthand experience my mother promptly got me and my sister out of that mind set by giving us attitude adjustments, just in laziness in general. In hindsight I see how they grow into it however. When the drive to retain it isn't there. So that was one option I never considered. Good job.

:iconbowplz: Hehe, thank you. Honestly though, it's something I see a lot in my own age group (I'm 20), just a lot of people with no drive to achieve anything. They drift from party to party, getting drunk and laughing at stupid websites, playing music loud and having random unprotected sex with whatever half-appealing stranger they get a hold of, and then trudge blindly through their life until they can do it again. There's no interest in anything except escape from reality. It's sad. I want to blame their parents, but then our world itself has a way of grinding down the unprotected until they feel like they are only empty vessels waiting for death...

Incredibly depressing. But still, I think that if their parents had raised them with their hands instead of their wallets, it wouldn't be so bad.

No, it definitely wouldn't, but when the real world comes there comes the dividing line between the achievers and the failures.
I don't want to say anything so much as "they get what they ask for," because I have to pay for it too through taxes, but instead that things have a way of working themselves out.

Yes, indeed. It's a shame we don't have more natural predators roaming around to pick off the sick and weak though. Those with a real will to live would be all that was left. T'would solve some problems, I think.

There are, and so is Mother Nature, but modern science is getting in the way. XD

I'm really no expert on the subject, and to be honest, I don't really know too much about it. But this is what I think:
In my opinion, it's not really a baby until its heart starts beating and it becomes an independent system. Until then, it's just a piece of the girl's body that grows with the rest of it. And, I mean, it's certainly not like it's sentient. Before then, what makes it separate? What distinguishes a fetus as "a life" from other organs and limbs? It seems to me that, until it becomes separate, it's a part of the girl's body, and it should be her choice whether or not she wants it removed.
On top of that, if the girl doesn't want it, how is it any more moral to bring an unwanted child into the world than to stop it from being born? It seems to me that if the options are miserable child or no child, no child would be ethical choice.
Anyway, I really believe that a girl should be able to choose what she thinks is right for herself and her unborn child, which is why I don't think abortion should be illegal. Because, even if you must look at the fetus as it's own entity, a child belongs to it's mother, and if the mother truly believes that what is best for the child is for it not to be born, then that should be her decision to make.

I am 100% against ABORTION in ARROGENT/NARSICISSTIC personality type situations........ EXAMPLE: Someone is pregnant and they absolutely have no GOOD reason for aborting the baby, except that 'they JUST don't want it'.........thats FUCKED UP! There is NO GOOD excuse for ending an innocent life because YOU are an ASS-BAG WOMAN.
Now, given in DIRE situations as those listed above like Medical complications or BiZARRE & CRUEL circumstances than I support it as an alternative choice.
But if the woman is strong enough to with-dure the pregnancy than I would hope that she would consider carrying the baby full-term & then give it for adoption to loving & grateful parents if it won't harm her or the baby.

Looks like 10% of people suppost killing innocent and defenseless children. Nice to know that the majority of people don't care anough about these things. *sarcasm*
