There are hypocrites in all sects. There are PC women who would deny their daughters an abortion if they needed parental consent, the are PLs who get abortions, there are born again Christians who sleep around the list goes on and on. I don't really find it shocking that people exhibit hypocritical behavior.

Gosh, I hate hypocrisy.

Unfortunately, my mother is one of those anti-choicers who still stands by the fact that my abortion was "ok" because of my situation. She doesn't get the fact that other women have been in the same and WORSE situations. She still continues to judge and preach. It frustrates me no end.

There is a tremendous amount of denial when it comes to this topic.

I agree with you completely- women who have exercised their right to choose

I love the last story, of the Catholic, pro-life girl turned compassionate, pro-choice doctor. I can always appreciate and respect someone who, after experiencing something for themselves, can admit that they were wrong and reform their ideas about it.

It reminds me of the lyrics to the Anna Nalick song "Breathe (2am)".


Two am, and she calls me 'cause I'm still awake
Can you help me unravel my latest mistake?
I don't love him, winter just wasn't my season.
Yeah, we walk through the doors, so accusing their eyes
Like they have any right at all to criticize
Hypocrites, you're all here for the very same reason.

This kind of rubbed me the wrong way, though:

I was prolife until I needed an abortion and realized the peril I'd have been in if it were not legal.

Why does it rub you the wrong way? SHOULDNT the choice to abot be the woman's, regardless of what the father/ husband wants?

Sara, for heaven's sake! When did I say or even infer that it shouldn't be the woman's decision? At any point in the past, has my argumentation come even close to the inference you've made here? Please really take a look at the part of the sentence I had a problem with:

"she had to choose whether the pregnancy or her husband were more important."

Not "her pregnancy or her happiness with her husband"; not "her pregnancy or the health of her marriage". Nope, not for this person. She told the patient she either had to choose her husband or her pregnancy, because obviously there is no way in humanity she could keep her husband and her pregnancy. I mean, that's the stupidest thing anyone's ever heard, right?

You see, I refuse to believe that all people are so rigid and inflexible that they won't bend for the ones they love. Sure, it could be true that the woman's husband wouldn't have stayed with her if she had refused the abortion, but it's probably equally true that she could have persuaded him to support her if she wanted to keep the pregnancy.

As it turns out (in the example), the woman didn't really want to keep the pregnancy anyway. But I think it was disingenuous of the medical provider to set up such a false dichotomy.
