I'm coming here again...because this place is home....and despite being a debate board I love n trust you all.
Abortion has always been very close to my heart. I knew growing up that Doctors *encouraged* (and that's putting it lightly) my mom to abort me in her 8th month due to the severity of my disabilities..... then in 2006 I found myself in a situation where abortion was the best course of action...I never got there(natural m/c for the newbies)....but still. Emotionally I was *THERE*. ...Then today I was in the car with my dad he had another friend there and thry were talking about his Ex GF and how he gad gotten her PG and she aborted. Both my parents are VERY PL...so of course he was going off about how "pissed" he was that she aborted. I'm PC, but...listening I...couldn't help it. I was pissed too. I couldn't believe that She had done that to my potential sibling....and it got me thinking. What would my kids have thought of me if they found out I had aborted thier sibling, what will they think if/when they find out that I almost had an abortion....we're that sort of family, it WILL come up.
How do you hang on to your convictions when they hit so close to home?
