Why, when your side does nothing BUT point out the good things? Given your...ahem....."logic "....THEY should also be pointing out the hardships, right? Then why aren't you fussing about it to them as well?<quoted text>
You know, owning a home is very risky. There's always the possiblity that it could burn down, be blown down by a tornado, be infested by termites, or could lose 50% of its value if the home market collapses.
Yet, despite these risks, you don't see real estate agents constantly telling young people/young couples that they may want to think twice about owning a home.
There are some things in life you should do despite the risks involved and having children is one of them.
I believe Ocean56 is throwing out all the possible hardships of motherhood for the purpose of scaring young girls/women into not having them or having perhaps just one child.
She has every right to tell them about the hardships of motherhood yet to be fair she should, at the same time/in the same literature, point out the benefits and joys of being a mother. She should give both the pros and the cons of motherhood to young girls/women.
Your deflection is fooling no one.
Ocean is NOT trying to talk them into not continuing their pregnancies. She's trying to make young girls think twice BEFORE HAVING SEX IN THE FIRST PLACE. And there is NOTHING wrong with that. Nothing.
