Ok so many of you ladies expressed in my other post about FB how much you are in the boat with me about hearing about pregnancies and such on Facebook. So I stumbled across this today from a college friend I had (I really do not talk to her anymore), and I almost burst into tears.

Oh I COMPLETELY agree. I wanted to respond on FB and say something along those lines but all of the responses were in support of her being able to make her own choices so I simply blocked all news feeds from her.

I was completely shocked. Never mind people TTC or suffering with IF, what about people who just lost loved ones? Or lost a child? They have no idea what everyone on FB is going through to post such a thing.

I knew you ladies will understand my complete shock of that post. Since I could not respond on FB without becoming a target for attack I needed to know if that sort of comment upset anyone else.

And thanks for the sorry over the BFN. The worst part is I feel this heaviness in my lower abdomin that had me so convinced this was it. I guess no early Christmas gift for me. :-(

That is just weird. I mean, what does abortion have to do with feminism? I support a right to choose also, but sheesh. I can't imagine that would make anyone I know proud of me or say 'yay! you get to celebrate feminism by having an abortion!' I mean, WTH?!

I am not entirely sure calling her my friend is even accurate anymore. She was a co-worker that was fun to be around but this is ridiculous. My best friend is a feminist and even she said that was a horrible thing to post. I just cannot get over it.

Exactly, to both your your guys comments!

Pro choice does not mean we all need to hear about it.

There is a time and place for everything. That's why they have support groups for stuff like that.....
