    It is frustrating that lawmakers are encouraging women to make lifelong decisions based on a knee-jerk emotional reaction. Of course no one wants to terminate human life. But when the alternative is a child raised by parents who never wanted a child, aren’t ready for a child, or can’t financially support one, how can we say that growing up with often times a single parent or at best two parents struggling to make the best of a situation they never wanted to be in, is better than terminating a life before it even begins? Those trying circumstances are just the opposite of what a child needs to thrive. Not to mention the possibility of growing up being bounced around into different foster homes and being turned out on the streets alone at 18. What we should be doing is educating pregnant women on what all goes into caring for a child to ensure that they are 100% prepared to give their baby everything they need to succeed in life.
