Why do you consider it cruel?

"Because that choice is cruel."

As is forcing a woman to gestate an unwanted pregnancy because of what's important to you, but I guess you want to pick and choose who gets to be cruel and who doesn't.

You may be advocating that abortion be made illegal and think it's okay because you've got the tide of political action behind you, but what if you didn't? What if political opinion was turned towards population control, as it is in some countries, and there were people arguing for legislation forcing women to have abortions? You could argue that those are two different things, but they are the same. In both cases, people are arguing that the government should be able to decide what women do with their pregnancies.

Since you're a teen mom, I'll put it in perspective. I don't know where you live and how old you were when your son was born (he is too cute, btw), but if you lived in certain states or were under a certain age, a parent or guardian could well have forced you to have an abortion, just as easily as they could have forced you to continue an unwanted pregnancy. Sick, huh? Why would you want to wield that kind of power over another woman if you can see how it could have been wielded over you?

1. For some people, having the baby is what would cause them to be a mess.


2. Every woman who gets pregnant is forced to be responsible and step up. She must choose to gestate or abort. There are no other options.

Abortion is a medical option when a woman is faced with an unwanted pregnancy. While it may be tragic, it is still well within her right to autonomously, and in privacy, choose the option with the short and long term risks that she chooses to assume. Since it is her and her alone, that bears those risks, burdens and sacrifices, it is sh who will make that choice, in conjunction with her medical care professional. Furthermore, her reasons for choosing continued gestation and childbirth or abortion are irrelevant to her right to make that choice. We may find it distasteful or repugnant, but that does not alter her basic civil rights an an adult citizen in this country.

I am glad you have reproductive choice and can make that call. Some countries would not afford you that, nor have the social systems in place to give you a step up. Your son is adorable, BTW~

Er, I have been a mother 4 times over. In fact, even though my DH and I met at 15, we waited 2 years AND I went on birth control pills AND we waited a month before having sex. We then used that birth control impeccably to prevent having children until we had steady jobs,saved up and paid for our wedding (with all the trimmings), then saved up for a down payment on a house, made sure we had good health insurance, had life insurance, THEN saved more so I could stop working and stay at home with our kids. Then we stopped using birth control and had gt pregnant 6 times deliberately, and with great thought. In fact, we have had 100% with contraception for 27 years now. I hardly need to be told to be responsible and step, LOL. In fact, I might be bale to tell some people just how to do that themselves ;-)

Nope. I became a mom when they pulled our first child out of my uterus via c section. I wasn't a mother when I got pregnant the first time. I wasn't even a mother when I miscarried that first pregnancy at 11 wks. I was only a mother when the second pregnancy resulted in th birth of our first child. Sex does NOT make one a parent. Giving birth does. And as long as safe options exist that may prevent a woman from assuming the greater risk inherent in pregnancy and childbirth, she will have a choice to prevent that birth.

Hi, welcome to the board. I am Heather and I am 100% Pro Choice. Unless you are going to pay and raise any child I might get pregnant with you can not tell me I cannot have an abortion. That is my medical decision to make, not yours.

You make the decision that is right for you and I will make the one that is right for me.

See, the thing you don't seem to understand is that being pro choice doesn't equal abortion being OK to that person. It does equal that person believing they haven't the right to tell anyone else what is/isn't OK for THEM!

<>

I feel it's a sad thing for some and the only decision for others. Frame of mind is everything.

<>

So am I. Aren't you glad we ad the *CHOICE* to have/keep our babies. If it was the 60's
you probably would've had him forcibly adopted as your parents would feel they had the right to make the choice for you.

<>

I am PRO CHOICE. Decide how you feel about your options. Do what is the best for you and expect people who love you to support you. Whether they agree or not.

Motherhood doesn't happen until birth. Pregnancy means possible motherhood. To some it can be viewed as motherhood. My first pregnancy ended in a very late miscarriage(18weeks). I birthed a dead baby. That didn't make me a mother of a living child, but it did make me a mother in the sense that I birthed a child.

There are many, many women who had sex, became pregnant, birthed the child and didn't (or couldn't) step up.
