I never knew how strongly I felt about abortion until I had to explain it to my 10 and almost 8 year old today.
When explaining things clearly we are forced to strip it to it's simplest form start there and then elaborate.
When it comes to abortion in it's simplest explination is the ending of a growing living being. According to the simplest biology we teach our children, living things are things that have the ability to grow, eat and reproduce. A fertilized egg meets these requirements and my children are there for certain they it is a living being.
As adults we cloud issues with our feelings and experiences but truth often lies in simplicity.
Today my boys were confused my the legality of abortion and frankly so was I.
