    Default How would life be different if there was no abortion?

    In conversation, I was trying to think of what the world today might be like if abortion did not exist anywhere.
    What increased social problems might exist if lots of unwanted children were about? What child protection issues might exist if they were all put into homes as they were before? or how might we cope with them if abortion didnt exist at all?
    There are so many missing populations now which existed in the past - but are just not there anymore.
    Where are the Down Syndrome children? the cleft palate children? and other handicapped ones with missing legs or arms?
    There is so little handicap among children one has to wonder if life is real anymore.
    Where are the homes for the thousands of unwanted kids of the 1950's - which were full at the time.
    One has to wonder would we treat these unwanted children any better that they were treated back then
    Or is abortion the straight alternative to the child abuse that existed back in the day when abortion wasent there...

    That would depend on whether there would be much fornication as Michelle Mulherin would put it!

    I live just down the road from some sheltered accommodation that enables a group of young Downs Syndrome people to have fairly independent and full lives; have I imagined this?
