But these things actually happen
. And they are
sad. It's easy to say "oh no, abortion is murdering poor little innocent babies!" but that's just emotional rhetoric designed to appeal to those who don't know what really happens. Even if the pro-abortion people appear to be just as emotional, their arguments are not based on false rhetoric like killing babies. The things like a little kid growing up without parents or a single mother's life ruined really happen
. Come on, these anti-abortion people are saying that if you approve of abortion, you also must approve of infanticide! That's insane!
