I am 100% pro-life. If I were to get pregnant (I'm an unmarried 24 year old female who DOES NOT want a baby), I would without a doubt carry that baby to term and give birth to it. Why? Because I got pregnant and I whether I like it or not, I have to suffer the consequences of my actions. I figure I have two choices to determine those consequences... I can give birth or I can terminate the pregnancy. Because I am pro-life I would choose to give birth. Now, I do not like the idea of anyone else doing any differently, but who am I to demand that someone else make the same decision as I just because I think I'm right? I would imagine that anyone who has ever had to make that decision and who has opted to terminate thier pregnancy suffered their consequences as well. I could not imagine the emotions that a woman experiences when having an abortion. She made her choice, just as I would make mine. I'm sure having an abortion does not go without its consequences. My heart goes out to all the women that have had to make that decision for them and their unborn babies.
So anyway... I guess what I'm saying is that I would never want anyone telling me what to do with my body and I'll never think that I am so wise as to tell another woman what to do with hers. I would encourage any woman that I know to not have an abortion, but isn't it ultimately her burden to bear? That's what's so great about this country, isn't it? We can make our own decisions and then deal with the consequences of those decisions, beit good or bad.
