How anti-abortionists support human trafficking

I wish that anti-abortionists would expand their world view in order to see what really happens to unwanted children around the globe. This type of thing not only happens in Bulgaria but all around the world. What is the main reason the parents or caretakers give for selling their children? They can't financially support them. And traffickers just love to buy and sell children because kids are cheap and expendable. They are re-usable and re-sellable and that makes them worth a lot of money, especially in the context of being able to use them over and over again.

I wish just one anti-abortionist would explain to me how in the world they are able to so effectively turn a blind eye to what actually happens to unwanted children. Guess what, this fight isn't just about giving women the right to choose what is best for them and their bodies. It is also about what is best for the children. And as rosy as it would be to believe that all babies are precious in the eyes of God and humanity, that is not the reality. If you believe that you are personally capable of saving every single child in the world from the horrors of being trafficked, then by all means, anti-abortion it up. But if you're not a complete idiot, it's time to rethink some of your beliefs. Can you honestly tell me that your god would prefer that these fetuses not be aborted in utero but would rather they be born into a life of domestic or sex slavery? Seriously? Because if so, that's a god that I want no part of.

So I guess everybody has a choice to make. Either continue spouting anti-abortion bullshit, all the while supporting by proxy the trafficking of children, or wake up and welcome yourself to the real world. If you are trying to keep birth control or access to safe abortions away from females, you support the continuance of the horrible lives of the children those females bear.

So, I guess we should just round up all the unwanted children in the world and kill them since apparently, they'd be better off dead.

They would be better off dead but there's nothing we can do about it if they're already here. Which is why we need to curb the issue before it even begins. In other words, denying abortion and birth control to people who need those things does more harm than good. We need to help those children that we can and understand that countless lives could be saved from ruin if those pregnancies were ended before the world has a chance to ruin what those fetuses have the potential of becoming.
