The world is a cruel, horrible, unforgiving place. Over 14.5 million children die of starvation worldwide every year. That’s over 40 thousand per day. If you combine that with cancer, disease, accidents, and murder, the number grows exponentially. Additionally, there are 2 million reported cases of child abuse in America alone each year. With so many deaths and abuses of children, why do people still cling to the idea that every life is sacred?

Many of these horrors are the result of unwanted pregnancies, and many of these horrible things would not have ever happened to these children if their parents had the option of late term and post term abortion. This is why abortion should be legal not only pre-birth, but also up to one year post birth as well.

In the wild, it is not uncommon for a mother wolf to kill her weakest pup, or a mother hyena to allow a deformed pup, to starve. This is a very common occurrence throughout nature. Some may think this is nature’s cruelty, but it is the kindest, most loving gesture that can be done for these poor unfortunate creatures. Imagine if they were allowed to survive. They would not only be tormented for the rest of their short lives, but they could also endanger the well being of the entire pack by being too weak or slow to escape predators, and not smart enough to warn the pack of imminent danger. By allowing the death of the weak and malformed young early, the mother insures that they do not lead a cruel life, but a happy one, as part of a healthy family. There is nothing shameful or evil for these thoughts, but how does this apply to humans?
