I agree with your assessment. AC has to believe any woman who chooses abortion is in denial or simply evil. Their ideologies won't let them see anything else.
I imagine none of the choices are easy. Seems to me, putting up for adoption might be the toughest choice of all.
How ya doin', Katie :)
I can't imagine any woman having an abortion does so without a lot of stress. I knew a lady who laughed about hers, and said she wish she could have another one, for the meds, but people say one thing, and hide their true feelings inside.

There is no easy answer to this, but I still don't believe the kill at will program is a good message to be sending.

The more backup plans / the more risk people will take.

It isn't inaccurate. Ask any one who has miscarried a wanted child. I wish no harm on any woman who has had an abortion. It is their legal right and to listen to you and others, they go on with their life with relief and satisfaction that they did the right thing. Why do they need empathy? It's all good. My sympathy is for the women who aren't sure that killing their child was the right thing to do and may be suffering some remorse.
It is inaccurate, I have miscarried. While the emotions are under the umbrella of what we call grief, the difference between losing an embryo/fetus and losing a child is this: One was but a dream, the other a reality. Ask any parent who's lost a born and known child.

Empathy and sympathy are not the same. If you need to ask why anyone needs it, you might be incapable of giving it.

Hi STO :)

I'd imagine putting up for adoption is pretty tough. But we don't aim for criminalizing it because some women have regrets. What gets me about AC is how they accuse us of dehumanizing the embryo/fetus - I don't - all while they dehumanize/demonize women who make the decision to terminate unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy. All the while they post as if they're justified to do such a thing while referring to PC as eeeevvviiilllllll for supporting women's civil rights to choice.

Ink, every one of my pregnancies was wanted. Even the one I 'killed'. And having miscarried several times, and having lost my elder son to an aneurism, I know the difference between losing a wanted fetus, and losing a child. It's huge. I mourned my aborted embryo for a few hours, my miscarriages for a few more.

I'll mourn my son for the rest of my life.

I'm sure this has been said to you before, but you assume much when you refer to 97% of abortions as 'inconvenience abortions'. The fact that you carried your pregnancy to term doesn't make you a better person than the woman who aborts because the condom broke, and her husband just lost his job, and she knows that her job would be gone if she took maternity leave.

And while I've got you on the phone here, I'm just going to throw in that all the pissing and moaning you've done over 'hand-outs' is in direct opposition to the position you claim to take: You don't want women to abort for financial reasons, but you'll be damned if you'll willingly give them help in that department once they deliver. There are only certain ways your 'pro-life' stance will permit it, namely adoption.

You claim to have all kinds of mad sympathy for women who abort and regret it. What about the women who give their babies away, and regret it MORE?? Of all the women I know who've either aborted or relinquished, the women who opted for adoption were the shattered ones...the ones who cried every day for years...the ones who AGONIZED over where, how, and with whom their children grew up, their safety, their happiness....

Personally, I think you're a sadist...but that's jmo.

You're NOT the only woman in the world. Every one of us is different. I'm pro-choice, because regardless of how *I* feel about abortion, I can only make those choices for myself, under my own circumstances. I would never presume to tell a woman her choice was 'convenient','casually made', or 'unloving'; and I wouldn't DARE to suggest that she's obligated to feel regret...or obligated not to.

Reading your posts often makes me feel physically ill.

I think that many times we would euthanize the animal in it's best interest. There is no reason for animals to suffer as there is no end game. Religious people as you call them believe that people and even forming people in the womb have a soul and God has a purpose for their lives therefore every chance for survival should be given and we as parents are charged with that responsibility.
And if we believe that ending a potential child would be in its best interests? Are we not doing the responsible thing, when we prevent utterly, an unloved child from being born?

I know you don't see it that way, but there again, your personal religious views do not constitute a valid reason on which someone ELSE must base their life choices.

She'd make excuses for the poor man... she has before. Her tendency toward misogyny becomes even more apparent. Hope she's grateful for not ever being manipulated and maltreated by the men she's empathized with as she throws women under the bus.

Abortion's been legal for most of our history. It's nothing new.

Nobody is prepared to be a parent. It's on the job training. Women have abortions because they get pregnant and they don' want the baby. It is that simple. I don't need to hear all the Great reasons for their decisions and why it was so much better for the child to be killed than to have a real bitch for a mother who has no locve to give her own child.

**********

And many people simply don't WANT to be a parent, it's that simple as well. Women who choose to be childfree (no kids by choice) have every right to make that decision, and it's a perfectly valid one. Furthermore, a woman who makes that decision, and has an abortion due to BC failure, doesn't have to explain her reasons to you or anyone else.

Again, if it isn't YOUR pregnancy, it isn't your decision. Period. Don't like it? Too bad.

Beautifully and brilliantly put, NAP. I couldn't agree more.

Inky (and sSSy too) come across to me as women who really can't accept the fact that some women NEVER want children, at any point in their lives, and because they can't accept the childfree choice are extremely judgmental of any woman who makes that decision. Both of them routinely deny that they feel any hostility toward a woman who chooses to be childfree (the term for no kids by choice rather than by circumstance), but most of their posts make it clear to me that they DO judge women who choose never to have children.

They just don't get it that motherhood is OPTIONAL, not required, and probably never will. In their narrow minds, women are "supposed to" be the child bearers and raisers. Any woman who doesn't "accept the role that God gave her" (or something equally ridiculous) is "selfish," "frivolous," or any other insult they choose to use.

Hahahahaha, Satan has attacked gods word??

Is this what you fall back on when people interpret it in a way that doesnt fall in line with your irrational beliefs?

The fact remains that the bible actually refers to Mary as a maid/young woman. Your continued ignorance only shows how rigid and dishonest you truly are. Your truly are full of crap forbyour religion; full of feces for jesus.
