    Was that necessary? Jeez.


    My reply was an add-on of my own opinion to austinsmom's post, and not as a personal attack to you.

    What was this for? Please, go back a page or two and read the threads in order and you'll see where the quotes are originating from. Don't start attacking people! You're way too quick to jump to conclusions.

    Well, just to post my opinion. I work at a Catholic hospital, thank God, so abortion just would NOT be an option. My sister had an abortion last year, and I really discovered the truth about myself and this very sensitive subject. Well, I encouraged her to keep it and to even move out here with me and I would help her get on her feet. Well, she did it, and I cried for two days. However, what made me feel worse for her was that she went through a very traumatic situation and she said she received no counseling and treated as if she had a very routine procedure done. I was very hurt at the time that she would do something like this, but now, I do see why she did it. Her boyfriend was abusive and beat her, even choking her...Hopefully, this A-hole will never impregnate another woman.
    So, no I would never put myself in a position to assist in an abortion. For those of you who would, I am certainly glad that you are able to, cause someone has to. I probably could care for a mom after the fact.

    You are right people should learn to take better care of themselves, but would you say that to a teenager or woman that was raped and is now pregnant. I think not... You need to think of both sides not just yours.
    I believe that aborting the child in these situations just adds to the trauma. The poor mother has been brutatlized and killing her baby won't change that, just add more trauma and pain. It is interesting, it is ok to kill the baby - completely innocent party but God forbid we should consider killing the father.

    Like innocent unborn children who have no choice, unlike their mothers who in the majority of cases have a choice--before becoming pregnant

    When i said "as long as they are not forced upon others, i was referring to people's OPINIONS on abortions being forced upon others.

    Do not read more into a post than what is there, please. Thank you.

    People who are against abortion, should never have one. I believe that they should not try to take reproductive rights away from others. We must each live by our own personal morals and values, and not require that others live by our standards.

    Trying to overturn Roe v. Wade is taking away the rights of others.

    There are 2,000,000 abortions a year in The US. Can you imagine the siuation we'd be in if all of these unwanted babies were born?

    Abortion is the quintessential "necessary evil."

    Pro-choice: yes
    Morning after pill: yes
    Assist: I have in the past. . .actually worked in a clinic for awhile, couldn't do it again, though.
