Of course I would still be their friend,friends hang in there during the bad times also.Maybe I wouldn't agree with what they did but I wouldn't turn my back on them.A long time ago I posted about one of my friends who had an abortion,I took care of her,cried with her. She went through alot of guilt over what she had done and shortly after that she committed suicide.I miss her so much.<quoted text>
So that's two women. What do you do on a larger scale? Do you pass out contraception? Do you offer financial help? Do you volunteer to babysit for women who have to work two jobs or can't afford to pay for daycare? And another question, if one of these women had chosen abortion, how would you have reacted? Would have have shunned them for their choice or would you continued to be their friend despite not agreeing with their decision? I have friends who are also against abortion. However, when faced with my own dilemma, they were completely supportive and did not turn their backs on me. One even went with me to my appointment. My point in all this is that you can have your beliefs. I understand why you feel the way you do. But I don't think you should turn your back on people or tell them they're bad people because your beliefs differ from yours. I would like to think that if one of those women had chosen differently, you would have still been their friend and been supportive.
And thank you for responding. This post of yours was a far cry from some of the ones you've posted. I'd like to see more of these with rational, calm discussions.
