ladyfreya :  Please give me one example of a woman terminating a pregnancy at 36 weeks “just because” and not for a medical reason.

So many of you have made me cry with pride in this thread. Your fierce compassion for other women is so moving. You spoke so eloquently about what was wrong with what trump said last night, which I felt in my deepest core. One of my best friends almost died from her pregnancy and she was devastated by the way it turned out. Under Trump Pence, she would have died. 

Your words helped me feel better about last night. Thank you beautiful bees. 😍

ladyfreya :  “Trump said women get abortions days before birth. Doctors say they don’t.” I think I’ll believe actual medical doctors over that asshat posing as a human being.

The whole Trump/Hillary debacle/debate aside, I have never felt that the government should have a say in what a woman does with her body. It’s YOUR body!!!!

For myself I am pro-life, meaning I personally would never have an abortion, however I am firmly pro-choice for every woman.   Just because I choose to never have an abortion does not mean that the choice should be made for women everywhere.  The reasons why people have abortions are NEVER black and white as so many people who are staunchly pro-life seem to believe.  People who are raped and get pregnant should NOT be forced to keep the baby to term.  That would be a 10-month reminder of the trauma they went through.  Plus if abortion was illegal, people would still find ways to get an abortion.  It is much safer for women everywhere if a safe procedure is available at a doctor’s office.

The other part of this is that people assume that it was easy for a woman to make the choice to have an abortion.  The people I know who have had one ALL struggled with it.  There are so many emotions surrounding abortion, even when it was the choice that was best for that woman.  The fact that people do not understand that is heartbreaking.

The other part of this too is where would all these children who were not wanted by their parents go?  Foster system?  There are so many kids needing good homes, and would making abortion illegal would just add to the thousands kids who are waiting for homes in a system that is broken.

Abortion is so complex and absolutely NOT black and white.  I wish people would realize that.

This is one issue in which I’m in agreement with the Hillary supporters.  What Trump said about late-term abortions was completely inaccurate; Hillary gave a very good response.

 I literally can NOT with the bullshit he spews. No one who gets a late term abortion is skipping out of the office, thrilled they could get one bc they changed their mind at 39W 6D.

It is a devastating heartbreaking choice for anyone to make, and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.

It’s just so typical for a rich white man who will never go through the fear and pain of that situation to think he knows anything about it.

MrsMeowton :  

I am very sorry for your family’s loss. I couldn’t imagine going through something like that.

It just drives home that late-term or even abortions period are not taken lightly.

I just wanted to say your post moved me got me teary-eyed.
