Abortion is included in the UK's national healthcare, and I think that's as it should be.

What is there to reply to? Clearly no one here understands where I'm coming from so what's the use in replying? I meant well I always have. I simply have trouble comprehending why anyone would choose to throw away everything good in her life. Just my opinion and I had a right to walk away from something I felt was going to destroy my best friend's life.

On the off chance that you're an authentic poster, I'll reply.


First, I think you replied in the wrong thread.


You are certainly entitled to think that having children is "throwing away everything good in your life," but did you ever think that maybe not everyone thinks the way you do?

I think if you're looking for support for being child free you should check out the Child Free By Choice (CFBC) boards.

If funding for abortion is banned because a segment of the population is opposed to abortion, then why is that different than banning funding for blood transfusions,contraceptives and mental health services?

Those medical procedures/services have their opponents.

One of the problems I had each time I got pregnant was my bust got bigger and bigger (I was pg 5 times, bf the 3 that came to term)and never went down afterwards. I just got fitted for a bra, the darn thing cost me $88 (and it's a great fit) but because I spend all day with my arms up driving and trying to sit up straight, my back is killing me, and with the OA is just awful on top of the spasms is just killer! (I have to use a back pillow/support)

I want to go down to a big B~small C. Yes I've got the dents in my shoulders too, but I've had them since I was 16 (and I'm 51 now) and we are working now with my Dr (who agrees with me that I do need it)and getting the insurance company to pay for it. The sounds of things I would qualify for it with the insurance because I want to go so small. From what I've been told I need 3 weeks or so to heal. So I still have time to get it done before school starts at the beginning of September. So wish me luck on this.

I just had my mammogram and because I'm so big it's hard for them to get a good picture of my breast~~on top of this we have breast cancer on both sides of my family (I've lost my paternal grandmother & 3 paternal aunts to it and 2 of my mom's sister have had it, we lost 1 of them to bc) so it's very important that I do this.

If the family was found to be correct, that he was suicidal over not liking the shape of his ears, he would not be able to participate in informed consent for cosmetic surgery in the first place.
