Welcome to the board :)
~But also just so you know...~
To clarify, she does know :) We discussed that later in this thread.
< I don't like abortion, don't agree with abortion, yet in some situations it is the best option?>
I think you'd have to go quite a long way to find someone who LIKES abortion. Most people would rather not be in the situation to need one in the first place.
Do you think it's wise to force a woman to gestate a pregnancy she doesn't want?
Erosia: How many have you had? I have had 3 D&Cs following miscarriages, 2 curettage and one suction. And they were a lot more gentle than the 4 c sections I had. C sections are major abdominal surgery and the abdominal wall is opened and many major organs handled. It carried much more risk than a simple D & C- and from experience infinitely MORE pain. NONE of my D&Cs hurt.
I'm glad I read through before replying, lol! I was going to ask the OP if she has any experience of childbirth - NOT the most gentle occurrence, in my personal experience!
I'm so sorry to hear that. As a Pro-Choicer, I believe that decision should have been entirely yours. Forced abortion, like forced pregnancy, is abhorrent and utterly wrong.
Let me guess - you really didn't have any opinion about abortion, never really thought about it much, but just a perfectly reasonable, unbiased individual, until you happened upon a link one day. Reading the factual description of abortion, your sensible, unbiased point of veiw led you to be disgusted at the ramifications, as any sensible, unbiased person with any shred of compassion would be at the very idea. And you felt compelled to share this information with others - that they might be so enlightened.
Any reasonable person would certain see the logic in your new, groundbreaking way of looking at abortion. An actual fetus - that would otherwise be born - is NOT!!
Am I close?
