As I said earlier, early abortions before a brain has begun to be developed are perfectly fine, but after a brain is present we are talking about a separate sentient innocent being, and I cannot in good conscience support systematic rationalised murder of either babies or animals. Exceptions when the mother’s life is threatened or a rape has occurred are obviously regrettably acceptable though.
However, generally speaking, poor people need to be supplied government-funded contraceptives and financial support to help them raise children, there needs to be good teenage preventive sex education and less media glorification of casual hookup culture, and better and more widespread foster care systems also need to be created. Any other sensible suggestions that avoid extremely radical solutions are obviously also welcome.
