I’ts easy to be on the outside saying there’s adoption, etc. but if you’ve never been in the position yourself, you don’t come close to fully knowing what it’s like. Carrying a baby to term and giving it up is not a piece of cake to do. I cannot imagine ever having to do that.

I’m sorry, I do see some of your points, but you are wrong about the definition of pro-choice. It is not pro-abortion. It’s called pro-CHOICE for a reason. You can be pro-choice (letting women choose), but still have children (choosing not to have an abortion).
ETA: You’re also wrong about contraception, sorry.

Pro-choice means just that. You are for a woman’s right to CHOOSE!
If it were about being pro abortion, it’d be called pro-abortion.
Pro-choice is not the same thing as “let’s go abort every fetus out there”.

I didnt criticize her at all. I told her that a baby is a blessing.
That exactly why she was having a hard time. It was insinuated from her posts that she wants to be a mother someday, but on her own terms. We, frankly don’t know her situation. There are bees here that live with their parents, their husbands parents, have DH’s and FI’s overseas, have housing issues, have mounting debt from wedding expences, have health issues, have diseasies that are hereditary that run in families…the list goes on and on. Just becasue she has a healthy relationship with her DH doesn’t mean she’s ready and able to support a baby. She , posbisbly for one of the reasons above, can’t have a baby right now and feels horrible guilt.
Reading someone telling her that she’s killing her baby and telling her that “her baby is a blessing” is hurtful.

I have a question about this, and any other anti-abortion Bee can PLEASE weigh in as well:
If you are against abortion because you think it’s equivalent to murdering an innocent child, how, how, how can you say that it’s ok to abort a baby that results from rape?!?!?!?!?! I’m not trying to be snarky, I just legitimately don’t understand.
It seems more like the position is that a baby is a punishment – you willingly had sex so you deserve to be cursed with a baby you don’t want, versus, you were raped so you shouldn’t have to have a baby after that traumatic experience.
Is a baby a blessing or a curse?

Still makes no sense. Explain this to me then…
My Mom had an abortion before she had me and my brother. So when she had me that automatically changed her from pro-choice to pro-life?
I’ve had an abortion. Once i choose to have a child I’ll automatically be pro-life?
No. I will always be pro-choice. I had the CHOICE to end my pregnancy and I will make the CHOICE to have a baby when I’m ready.

@ChefDori: I think you need to go google pro choice. My mom had an abortion and she still had children. Being pro choice doesnt mean you abort any and every pregnancy.

And yes its true, everyone wants sex without consequnces.

“pro-choice means you are for abortion, not that you choose to have a child.”
Do you not understand what the word “CHOICE” means? That there are two options and you either choose one or the other?

In my situation, I never want kids. I use multiple birth control methods to make sure I don’t get pregnant. However, as we all know, birth controls all have a fail rate. I’ve tried to get sterilised and been rejected due to my age.
I am in a stable relationship, have a fiance and a mortgage. I am set up in life. I will never have children, nor give birth to any children.
What would you suggest if I fall pregnant? Damn right I would be having an abortion.

This is why as conservative as I am in most issues, all the talk of closing down Planned Parenthoods makes me sick. They do so much for getting low-income women that may otherwise be having abortions on BC and preventing the pregnancies in the first place.

Why should I lose one of my options of birth control because I am in a stable relationship?
Why should I have to risk my life, greatly increase the risk of having a permanant disability and risk the probability of having a miscarriage further on than when I would choose to have an abortion if I did end up pregnant?
