Ah, thank you so much. :) I’m glad to hear that.
This is a tough question for me to answer, because I have a lot of conflicting thoughts about it. But I’m really happy you asked. Sorry if this gets repetitive, or isn’t well said.
You having your son, despite your rough circumstances, was your choice. You had your say in what happened to your body. Other women should be able to have their say, too. No matter the circumstances.
Even if the woman just feels she isn’t ready to have a child, she should not be required to birth that child. There are other options, yes, but it is ultimately her body, and her choice. While the fetus has the possibility of growing into a living, breathing baby, the mother is already living and breathing, and bringing another human being into the world is a life altering choice. If she does not want that child, she should not be forced into having it.
I understand where you’re coming from. And I know how you feel. But you have to remember that, just because a woman is getting an abortion, or considering one, doesn’t mean it was an easy choice for her, or that she doesn’t have feelings of guilt or regret about terminating the pregnancy. I dont think anyone could have zero qualms about a choice that serious. But how a woman feels about having it isn’t the issue here. The issue is that she should be able to, if that’s what she wants. It is a tough desicion for most, but the woman should be legally allowed to make that desicion.
Regardless of whether the woman just isn’t cut out to be mother, or they can’t afford to have the baby, or they were raped, etc, it’s their body, and every woman should have the legal right to an abortion. I don’t necessarily think abortion is a great thing, or “A-Ok,” as you put it. Its a very sad thing, and nothing anyone would do eagerly or happily, but I think all women should have the right to one, if that is their choice.
Please feel free to message me again, if you have more questions about this. But if you could, please do it off anon, so we can have a private discussion. Thank you. :)
