There is no "we" in "personal" choices.

And a lot of smart people DON'T believe in God. So what.

By the way, militant religionists like Knutter are NOT what I would call smart. She's quite the opposite, judging from some of her vilest posts here.

If girls and women think school or work is hard now, they should know that becoming a mother will be ten times harder. Many mothers and grandmothers don’t tell young girls and women in their family exactly how hard motherhood truly is, for reasons known only to them. I strongly disagree with the practice of keeping girls in ignorance of this. I believe they NEED to know what being a mother will require of them, so they can make an informed decision about being a mother, even if it means some girls will decide not to be mothers at any point in their lives. That is just fine if some don't want to be mothers. Not all girls or women are suited to be moms, and choosing NOT to be a mother is just as valid as the choice to be one.

Some of the hardships mothers of all ages will face once a baby arrives include -- but are not limited to -- the following:

1. Loss of freedom
2. Loss of sleep
3. Loss of money
4. Loss of Education and Job/Career Opportunities
5. Loss of Mobility
6. Loss of Private Time
7. Dealing with colic

There is no escaping the fact that becoming a mother makes a girl’s/woman's life much HARDER and she loses most, if not all, of the benefits and comforts she had before she got pregnant. Too many girls/women are PRESSURED into having children by family members and/or religious community, and purposely aren't told just how very hard motherhood is until AFTER they have had a baby. I think it is high time that changed. If some girls/women decide they don't want the hardships of motherhood, that is fine. The choice for a woman to be childfree is just as valid and respectable as the choice to be a mother.

You're not only a diehard proabort, but you are anti-womanhood & anti-motherhood to boot.

You're not a feminist at all. Reading between the lines, you wish you were born w/ a penis.

Who gets to decide? The woman carrying the pregnancy. When life begins is a philosophical question, not a legal one. A born person cannot force another to sustain their lives against that second party's will; a fetus cannot have more rights than a born person.

None of my siblings is particularly devout, and some are also atheists. If the church wants to do a mass, yippee for them. It doesn't mean a thing to me, nor would my mother have cared.

What a pathetic man,he said his mother was a good Catholic and he refused to give his mother a funeral Mass. What a pathetic piece of dung . Petey didn't honor his mother and her faith. Petey is scared to step into a Catholic Church.

It's not the truth. It is her victimized idea of it. Obviously she can't handle motherhood and anything else but she is in error to think other women can't either. She is also in error to think that all women resent their babies because they come first with a lot of demands.

As is typical for self-centered, selfish proaborts, Petey was only thinking of Petey. Even at his MOTHER'S funeral, Petey gets what Petey selfishly wants. I have no doubt that Petey was nothing but a disappointment to his late mother. She's praying harder than ever for his filthy soul.

Petey: When life begins is a philosophical question, not a legal one.

When life begins is a biological one: at conception. "Personhood" is subjective.
__________

Petey: A born person cannot force another to sustain their lives against that second party's will

You are trying to dehumanize human beings, again, Petey. Pregnancy is how mankind was created to procreate.
__________

Petey: A fetus cannot have more rights than a born person.

You discriminate to death based on temporary location, size, stage of human development. As a gay man, I thought you preach "tolerance".
