I am genuinely interested in hearing from those BEEs who have had difficulty with TTC or have been touched by miscarriage, stillbirth or have lost a child. Have your views on abortion changed? What were they before? what are they now?
This is a delicate topic so I am asking the BEEs to be respectful of others and their views. I am only asking for responses from those who fit the above criteria.
Thanks in advance to those who share their story. xx

cmsgirl: Absolutely not. I am currently 20 weeks pregnant and had a CP and 2 MCs to get to this point. Just as I had the right to decide to have a baby, other women have the right to decide what they want to do with their bodies.

I have 3 children, suffered a mmc and have been trying unsuccessfully for a few months after that and i still and always will support a womns right to choose. Regardless of the circumstances a woman has the right to choose and should never be questioned for it.

Thank you for sharing your story and viewpoint.
I was reading an american medical journal article at work on this topic and the findings just did not seem to ring true. It did not seem correct to my colleagues either. Hence the post. I’m interested in hearing from a wider sample of bee’s in this post.

Hi, I can’t answer this question since I don’t fit the above criteria at this time, but find this thread very interesting. If you don’t mind me asking can you post a link to the article you read. Thanks.

I’ve had 2 miscarriages and 2 live births. I am pro choice although I hate seeing people take for granted the ability to procreate instead of being a blessing to others threw adoption.

misslioness: I am glad I am not the only one to find this topic interesting. It stated that 73 percent of women who were pro choice changed their opinion after experiencing difficulty TTC and/or miscarriage, stillbirth or death of a child. the sample size was 1000 American women between 20 and 45. I was curious as to when, where and how this information was obtained and even how long after (stillbirth, miscarriage) occurred but unfortunately this was not stated in the article.
I wish I could post a link but I can’t as it is a pay/subscription journal that I can only access at work. I’m on 5 weeks holidays as of yesterday. (yay!)
when I am back at work I will definitely post you a sample of the article.

We struggled with infertility before getting pregnant.
Still pro -choice.

When I was 14 years old, I discovered that I am almost certainly infertile. I am, and have always been, pro-choice.

2 MC’s, 1 Dear Daughter (almost 2), and 29 weeks pregnant with #2.
Still fully pro-choice.

Been TTC for 2.5 years, no pregnancies…still pro-choice.
Just because I personally wouldn’t get an abortion doesn’t mean I have the right to dictate what others can/cannot do. It’s their lives, not mine.

I was far more open to the thought when I was younger. But, three miscarraiges later, I feel abortion is a disgrace. Too many women can’t have children and want them while women just throw their babies away.

I had one miscarriage and currently have a 9 month old. I still support a women’s right to choose.

I am childfree but I can tell you my mother had 7 miscarriages – including a couple of second and third term pregnancies, the latter one a twin pregnancy – between having me and conceiving my brother five years later and she is absolutely pro-choice. She was also fully supportive when I had my own abortion many, many years ago. She fully recognizes it is a personal choice, and after also having three full term pregnancies and healthy babies, that pregnancy, childbirth, parenting also should be something women have the freedom to choose or not choose.
