Why is drinking, smoking, and drugs while pregnant so discouraged but abortion is so accepted?

Maybe they're are trying to kill their baby another way?

Having fostered an infant that was born addicted to drugs I can tell you from that experience that a baby born to a horribly addicted mom is one of the saddest things you can see. And they don't get off of it overnight. They get methadone for extended periods of time. They are wired and they will keep you up long periods of time without sleep. I thought I was going to have a nervous break down taking on that whore's responsibility and getting that child well. That child today still has issues with her health and went through school with a learning disability. She is in junior high and struggles with adhd and add and an abundance of health issues. I think mothers that have children addicted should serve long jail sentences because they have condemned their children to a lifelong hell.
@Fungirlmmm Thank you for your response. It's a sensitive question I just wanted to see everyone's thoughts. I feel sorry for the child and just wish the best outcome for them.

Though they won't succeed in killing the baby, they will give it health issues, addictions, deformities, but not sweet everlasting death
@Lackwittyname Abortion is not always successful either but more successful than this.

@SW-User True
Drinking, smoking and drugs do not kill a child. They will make the child have syndromes which can make their life a disabled hell.
So if you plan to carry your baby to term and bring them up, I think a bit of sacrifice is not too much to ask.
@SW-User I'm not pissed. I'm just laying my thoughts, as you are. There will always be exceptions to any scenario we have. But it is common sense that procedures that affect the body internally be conducted under professional care.

A person carrying out abortion has made their mind up about not wanting to carry the baby to term.
A person who indulges in substances while pregnant is too selfish to give up these substances that have a chance of risk to their baby.

Personally, I could not bear to even bring my baby to risk if I was pregnant. I cannot understand how any mother could. But thats me.
People will do what they do.
@SW-User Awesome. Thank you. 🤗

One removes an unwanted child or ends a failing pregnancy. The others could harm and disfigure the child before it's even born.

I spose that’s one way to open a sensitive topic.

Realistically, all of those things can (and do) happen during a pregnancy.
Responsible people who want a child, desist with the drinking/smoking/drugs.
Many irresponsible people look at abortion as a favorite form of birth control.

I know that accidents can happen (the pill isn't 100% and condoms do indeed break), so I think abortion should be available, but not after the first trimester.

In an incredibly unpopular point of view, I think if you can't stand the thought of abortion, you shouldn't have one. If you want one, go ahead, but don't ask me to pay for it.
Well most abortions legally happen within 10-12 weeks. A woman isn't typically showing until around 13 or 14 weeks if not later. I suppose at the point you would see a woman drinking or smoking and know for a fact she is pregnant it is likely she is beyond the point of legally having an abortion. At that point she is just fucking the kid up with what she is putting into her body.

Damn... you weren’t kidding, young lady... about the whole block thing... although blocking for this is immature...

I’m surprised more people just don’t give the kids up for adoption to be honest... instead of destroying them ... one way or another.
@Spokeskitties75 Hahaha It's a sensitive topic. Just a question. It does not represent where I stand on the issue.
It's your body and you have the right to do anything with it, even stab it or fill it poison and run naked on the street at 8 am
@SW-User hahahaha WTF
@SW-User Abortions are awesome, unless they all start to skip being teens and become practical and miserable like the rest of us
I don't think abortion should be an accepted thing. It's just people want to sound it like acceptable because it tries to hide/correct their mistakes.

Even if you believe abortion is murder, which I don't subscribe too, it is like asking why the death penalty is okay but torture is not.
@ViciDraco Good question! Both end up dying eventually. Just one worse than the other.

They're happy for us to kill ourselves hence they gladly sell you tobacco and alcohol to make money.

@YukikoAmagi Hmmmm......

Hypocrisy at it's finest

Smoking is the only thing that is good for the baby
@Smokelover15 Good job troll
