The debate over abortion continues to rage on, whether you are pro-choice or pro-life this subject generates many emotions among the people. Politicians use this topic to get votes, while others avoid it so they don’t lose votes. I remember watching an Obama/McCain debate in 2008. The platform was held at some big church. When McCain was asked about abortion his response was pro-life, the crowd cheered. When it was Obama’s turn to go, he skated around the issue, but you got the feeling he was pro-choice. The crowd did not respond favorable.

I have a possible solution to this problem, which may improve our society by creating more jobs, boosting the economy, and improving our armed forces. The following is my proposal. I will use a common scenario people find themselves in to explain.

A woman gets pregnant she is neither pro-choice nor pro-life. She realizes she would be unable to support a child at this time. She contemplates having an abortion, but is unsure how she would feel about it.

The government would set up a massive call center, for people to call to learn about their options. Staffing this call center would create government jobs. This woman would call in, and explain her situation. The call center representative would go over her options.

The options would be this; the government would pay her $30,000 to $40,000 to follow through with her pregnancy. Once she delivered the child would be handed over to the United States government. This would stimulate the economy; because the woman would spend the money she was given. Since pregnancy is a bonding experience for women, the mother could back out at anytime resulting in her keeping the baby. If you had people getting pregnant just to collect money would be favorable to the United States, because we would have more trained soldiers.

The child would be sent to one of many different care facilities, where the child would stay until the age of six. There would be one facility in each state; these facilities would need to be staffed creating more jobs. Once the child hit six years old they would be transferred to a military school, again creating more jobs.

Once transferred the child would attend school during the day, and military training at night. The curriculum at this school would be the best in the nation. The military training the child would receive would shape them into a future solider. This would vastly improve our armed forces, because the people coming out of these schools have trained their entire lives to become elite soldiers.

Personally I think this is a great idea, I also feel this would curb the abortion debate, why would the woman I used earlier choose to have an abortion when she could be paid $40,000 to follow through with the pregnancy? I am sure there would be human rights activist jumping all over this idea, but these government adopted children would have the best of everything. There lives would be rich with experiences.

The funny thing I see in the abortion debate is this; someone may be pro-choice, until they are pregnant, since this is happening to them, abortion is not an easy choice. Someone may be pro-life until they get pregnant and realize they cannot properly care for the child. The solution I outlined above could do so much for our nation. I know this may come off as a radical idea, but if you look at it closer it may just be a perfect solution to the abortion debate.
