Glad you had a good day. And you are right..all of our experiences are different.<quoted text>My day has been lovely, thank you. Your brunch sounds lovely too - how nice that you got to spend time with your family!!
Our experiences do form our opinions, and I really do understand that you would want that sort of outcome for every woman who gets pregnant. Your decision yielded a great outcome, in that your son was receptive to welcoming you back into his life. But I wish you could understand, that such a wonderful set of circumstances simply ISN'T the outcome for every pregnant woman, every pregnancy, or every born kid. And that, when abortion becomes more the province of the government, than of the individual, women who NEED an abortion, as I did, will eventually be denied one in the name of getting more votes for someone who will probably never need one.
And totally understand you did what I am sure was not easy for you.
I don't think all women take it lightly..But the only 2 women That I know who had them..8 between them..one of them is like family to me..
THEY BOTH KNEW ABOUT BC but didn't use it. One tried "pulling out" said BC made her fat..she has great depression problems and I know some of it has to do with the abortions. I tried to get her counselling before..try to get her to stay on BC now..we don't discuss the abortion..she can't even say the word..And she knows I don't love her any less..
MY big thing is that abortion is becoming too much the norm with no incentives to make it rare. I POSTED EARLIER THAT if women's groups took up that cause..RARITY as they have others.. without changing any law ...No rights violated.. would probably cut the numbers of elective abortions in half..
And have less STDS. IF the politic for this kind of change were there..And the business of abortion was not political..we would have PSA s on the scale of smoking ones. They did a few on STDS. But never once that I heard brought out to women..That abortion is a medical procedure that may not be necessary if prevention is used..THAT hooking up is unhealthy indiscriminately and not safe.
When this country embraces a CAUSE..they get results..And every unplanned pregnancy that does NOT happen is a GOOD cause..IMO
Sorry to be on the old soapbox..THERE ARE way too many elective abortions for where we are now in the 21 century..again IMO.
AGAIN glad you had a good day..God bless.
