I don't know how everyone else feels about abortion. But I guess you would say I'm for life. Even though I believe that every woman has the power to make her own choices, I just know that If I had to make my own choice, no matter what, I would always choose life.
I am not a religious person. I couldn't tell you what I know happens once this life has passed, because I don't. All I know is the life that im living and loving right now. No mistakes and no regrets.
If I ever became pregnant I would deal with the consequences of my decisions and raise my child to the best of my ability...or if knew i wouldn't be able to fully support my child I would consider adoption to let someone else raise it to the best of their ability. You always have to do what you have to for the people you love.
So me and my boyfriend were discussing this today when I told him a friend of a friend recently found out she was pregnant.
Apparently it wasn't a planned pregnancy and my friend is hoping her friend will get an abortion. My immediate thoughts are "what the Fuck" she decided to go fuck dudes and just because she doesn't know who the father is doesn't give her a right to kill an unborn child. Live with your decision to not wrap it up or don't have sex at all you doosh bag. There are plenty of people out there who would give the world to have a child and you are gonna just kill it. That's not right.
There is one condition where I would understand if someone got an abortion.
Even though I still believe everything happens for a reason, if your raped you should have the right to choose. Whether you choose abortion or just giving the child up for adoption.
I, on the other hand wouldn't have an abortion. Only because what if that man was sent to impregnate me for some reason beyond my comprehension. What if he is going to grow up to be someone who creates this spectacular invention that changes the world for good. Maybe he will be a united states president, the best one who ever lived. He could also grow up to be completely normal, go to school, college, get married have kids. Maybe he'll become a doctor and support his mama when she gets old and gray.
But on the chance that i wouldn't be able to live with looking at that child everyday and be reminded of one of my most terrifying experiences, I would put the baby up for adoption. Someone is out there who would love and care for that child not judging him every day for what his father did or was. Someone who has wanted children themselves for a long time but just never could.
When I told my boyfriend this, he told me if I decided to keep a baby from a man who raped me that he would leave. And I don't understand why? Why he wouldn't be there to help me through one of the hardest times in my life. Isn't that what loved ones are for?
He also told me that Hitler's mother was going to have an abortion and decided against it. He asked me if i would have been against that too. Well my answer is, she didn't and even if she had, I'm sure someone else somewhere in the world would have done something as horrible to another race or religion. Bad things happen every day, but you have to take the bad with the good. Good things come from horrible experiences as well. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger right? Not saying that I like what Hitler did, because every time i hear about the Holocaust or watch a movie about it i ball my eyes out knowing the terrible things he did to people. I do wish he never existed, but who is to say if he didn't exist it wouldn't have happened anyway. I'm sure the world would be completely different, the smallest decision can change everything and since that was a big part of history, how do we know that someone couldn't have done something even worse by just messing with fate.
There are probably few people who think like i do, but it is how I think and feel and nothing or no one is ever going to change my mind.
I would like to know your thoughts on abortion. When do you think it's okay? And why? or why not?
