I have plenty to be thankful. Some would say it take the experience of loss to appreciate what you have.
Reread your post to me. Nevermind, it doesn't matter. If you live for any length of time you will experience losses. We all do.

It is her experience her body and her set of emotions in play.
You people are so fcked in the head that you eliminate the "woman/girl" from the scenario entirely as though she is nothing...just a machine, who walks around in a fetus fog and can't find her ass with both hands. BUT then at some point she is suppose to feel be oozing with all this love and affection and entirely dismiss herself from the experience.
Do you people ever listen to yourself? You are the most judgemental intolerant uncomprehending unsympathetic woman hating ass holes that call themselves christian. Then you sit around wondering why christians get bashed. Now you know. You need to take a good hard look in a mirror.
I have a friend who would say, "you breathe because the air is free."

Katie is very much in this senario in which she expresses great loss for her child who died young because she misses her and all the things she would do if she was still alive. Very understandable.
At the same time she doesn't miss anything that Aaron would do in his life because she didn't know him even though his little body has maybe been useful in medical research. My 'Christian" way would be to consider both lives as having contributed to the world, her daughters to Katie's world and her son's to the rest of the world.

Forgive me, but I thought from your post that abortion or not would no longer be an issue for you.
What makes you think that?

Still fertile, still having (married) sex, and if confronted with another toxic pregnancy, would not attempt gestation.

OH BULLSHIT! Your back peddling and excuses don't cut it.

You can take you christian judgmental ways and shove it straight up your ass. When you have walked a mile in her shoes you get to have an opinion on how YOU feel, BUT you have NO right to criticize or demean her for her own views and feelings on her OWN experience. You and your pals certainly like to pretend you are so above the rest when you are SO beneath. You have no humanity, and certainly no common sense. What you do have is a hatred for women. You have been trained well by your circus leaders/church leaders in your feeble attempt at guilt tripping.

Her fetus died in utero, how the fck are you suppose to miss something that NEVER WAS???? YOU people are ridiculous to say the least.

You didn't answer the question. Disallowing choice would not be taking women/girls for granted? That is the utmost of being taken for granted. As I stated before if you are going to treat the situation as a woman/girls "duty" then IT IS in NO uncertain terms taking her for granted....it reduces her to a slave. She deserves a choice, not a mandate stating what she MUST do. It is HER body, her health, her risk and her decision.
Mam, I hate to be the one that breaks the news to you, but most men who are all for abortion at will, are not looking at the womens health. They simply want a way out if she does get pregnant. More and more men don't want to commit to one woman in marriage for life. I was one of those men. My wife and I had lived together over three years, and moved 4 times, purchasing our first place while still not married. I wasn't becouse she wanted it that way.

Men do have influence over their spouse, or WOMAN , and you know this to be true in most cases.

They take them for granted, play head games, etc....

Most women who leave their Man, and obtain another Man, in many many cases find they have traded one man for another man.

As long as you look to any man to make you happy, or for your happiness, you will be disappointed. And it goes the other way.

It took me many years to truly appreciate and love my wife, and for that I am sorry, and ashamed, but without the love of God in one's heart, they simply cannot love the way the should, as much as you and many others who read this will disagree.

I did not say without going to church, reading bibles, or any other thing.

I said without God in their heart, they simply cannot do it. Even though there are those who appear to do it well. I'm sure you've heard about that couple that you just couldn't believe right?

Abortion does help a woman for the moment in many ways, but just like any drug that helps, it comes with side effects. Some you hardly notice, but others you do.

I've had my struggles, but never to fond of booze either, and very thankful!!
That stuff is easily available, and cheap.

I watch over 92 men, who are in prison becouse of drugs or booze, and they remind me everyday of what could've been. I see them as men, and nothing less. Many very smart, but simply made dumb choices, and got caught, since most of us men have made dumb choices.:)

I don't look down on them, and know that I could be right there with them.
When I was younger - I would've said there's no way I would do this or that. As I got older I started running out of things that I said I would never do.

I've never done any illegal drugs like cocaine or meth, but I'm not stupid to the fact, that I would probably love both or anything else out there.

I read where Alaska state troopers who deal with meth lab bust, must complete a course, where they each must master the art of making meth. They say it is to help them understand the process they deal with. I say it is a very stupid thing to do, since no matter who a man is, he's still just a man :)
But they don't ask my advice.

Many are thinking (neither do we!!) Lol

Hope you day is well tmrw, and if you need a water pump for you vehicle ,or just an air filter - O'Reilly's will be open :)

So if a woman has consensual sex, knowing that a pregnancy is a possibility, and gets pregnant, you're going to compare her to a slave? That's a little dramatic aint it? Slaves were not responsible for being in the situation they were in. Terminating a living human fetus should require more considerations than simply "it's her body". It's not like she wore the wrong nail polish with her dress, to correct this "mistake" you suggest that terminating a potential life should be upon her whim?
Sure, there are times when abortion must be a necessary option, but a last option, not simply because a woman doesn’t want to be accountable or responsible for what she created.
