I'm sorry you felt the need to have an abortion. For whatever the reason, it must have been a painful and heartbreaking choice.

To which goddess or god will you be praying?

Prayers under that notion aren't appreciated nor requested.

I agree. I thought maybe I was missing something here but if so I am not the only one.

Why is it assumed everyone who makes different choices than you would needs prayer? I have made plenty of choices in my life that would make others cringe but I am perfectly at peace with them. I sure as heck don't want anyone praying for me over them. Now when someone wants to pray for my health or happiness I find it a kind gesture no matter WHO they are praying to but when it comes across as they are praying for my heathen soul or for me to see the light I get my hackles raised.

I can't stop anyone from doing it but why do they need to advertise that they are going to? Do you get extra god points for telling the world you know better than me and are going to pray that I learn to live your way?

Well I'm a little confused by your responses. I am told that having an abortion is a difficult and painful decision therefore, I wish to offer up prayer for you for having to go through that procedure. What is wrong with that?

Well, who is your post directed to? Who on here do you know for sure had an abortion? Who do you know that specifically was in pain while making that decision? Or are you putting your holier than thou attitude out there based on assumptions?

This is a debate board, so it's not really the place for that post.


Do you have a topic to debate?

While your sentiments may have been well meaning.t's considered condsending to make a general post like this which makes it appear you believe that every woman who aborts is in pain or somehow regret thier decision. If you'd like to offer a specific messeage to a specific poster here who you feel is in pain after thier abortion, that's one thing...but blanket statements like yours cause more harm then good. Not to mention i can only come up with a small handful of women on this board who have actually aborted...and none of them need your pity.

I fail to see the problem in offering prayer for others. If you didn't have an abortion then my prayer is not directed towards you. I happen to know that a number of people who are pro-choice have had abortions as I have visited this board before.


I would think that the proper response when someone says "I'll pray for you" is thank you and not sarcastic remarks.
