2.20.10 Abortion: An alternative to pro life and pro choice

< Previous Issue Higher Issue All Issues Next Issue >

What if you were put in charge of the World tomorrow? How would you run the planet?

If you have arrived onto this page from an external link or search engine, the material below will make no sense whatsoever unless you know why www.12-12-12.org was written. A very brief summary can be read by clicking here

This globally popular educational and research website lists every national and international problem in the world in a rather unusual and entertaining way, so remember to bookmark www.12-12-12.org in your favourites folder! For the record: Andronicos the author does not profess to greatness in any shape or form. Lets continue.................

Andronicos "The Great" as Director of the Human Race and Manager Planet Earth commands and Andronicos "The Cynic" responds as follows.........


There is an alternative to pro life and pro choice, especially when the foetus is potentially damaged.


When the technology has been perfected to freeze and store embryos let this be a third choice.

I have a profoundly disabled son with learning disabilities, my first born, who is the love of my life. If my wife and I had the choice in 1977, we would still have had Kristian and neither aborted nor frozen his embryo, yet I will never criticise those that do. I firmly believe our Creator God has built a backup system for human beings and a potential for rebirth or resurrection in the future. If a computer has a backup, shouldn't a human being?

Not connected with the above statements, I have personally experienced the emotions surrounding an unplanned pregnancy which could have created many problems at the time. Although nature took its course and a miscarriage occurred, it would have been preferable to have a third option: temporary freezing and storing the embryo.

Let embryo freezing be a third choice to pro life and pro choice. As such, at a given point in time, 12 years after freezing takes place or when the mother reaches a certain age, if neither parent wishes to have the baby, one final option should be offered: the transplant of the frozen stored foetus to one of thousands of women who cannot conceive a baby. There will not be a shortage of volunteers. Nevertheless, the responsibility what to do will at all times remain with the parents, specifically the mother. They are answerable to their consciences and to their spiritual beliefs and not to the state or religious clerics.
