and I'm telling my story
>>Pardon me for laughing out loud at your question, but are you really the CL of this community? <<
nah I just like the awesome yellow hat. It really brings out the color of my eyes.
>>What am I debating?<<
Um yeah that is what I said. See most people start a debate with a point ex. "abortion is wrong" or "restricting gestational choice is wrong" and then elaborate from there leaving room for future posters to defend of refute the original statement.
>> Read my blog and report back. <<
I read it
>>And if you seriously, have no idea why I posted here on this 'debate board' then you have no business being a community leader. <<
Oh I have plenty of ideas but I figured it would be more polite to ASK what you wanted rather than make inferences based solely on a few lines of text. I am so glad I did that too because I know my taking the polite route is what got me such a warm response from you.
>>Or if you'd prefer; take the more hostile approach and just delete my post<<
of course I can see where you would assume I would do that especially since my last post was so openly hostile.*ETA even if I could have removed your op which I can't I would have no desire to because I am assuming that eventually you will tell us what you want to debate.
ETA again to remove snarkiness.

Wow, that was uncalled for!
I read your blog, and I'm also not sure what you want to debate.
I'm certainly not going to debate your CHOICE, b/c I'm pro-choice and feel that you had every right to decide whether to carry or abort.
I'm really pleased for you that you had that choice. That's the crux of being pro CHOICE, for me. I can choose to gestate or not. Same goes for you and every other woman in countries that allow abortion.
You chose to have your son and reading your posts he brings you great joy. That's fantastic, but you are not every other woman on the planet and what is right for you isn't always right for them.
I chose life, too.
I would say it's less that we didn't "get it" and more that you weren't very clear.
It doesn't really seem like I'll find my intellectual equals here.
