Two friends, two stories.
Friend A had an emergency c section a week before the effective date for her tubal ligation. Dr. Refused to do it due to liability. Friend had heart issues and was not cleared to have the surgery later. Friend was also not cleared for bc. Cardiologist said no more kids or life would be threatened. Friend A and her dh have a condom break months later. Friend A is pregnant. Cardiologist says there is no way she can safely carry this baby.
Friend B unknowingly contracts HIV from dh. Discovers this and pregnancy at the same time. Finds out dh used heroin while stationed in Germany. Cannot even think about bringing an HIVpositive child into this world.
Both of my friends chose to terminate their pregnancy. Friend A saw no sense in risking leaving her two healthy children without a mother or her dh without a partner. Friend B did not think it was fair for a child to be born with a deadly disease.
Before you judge a woman who has to make this kind of decision, think about what may have led up to it. Life is crazy and there are many scenarios we do not consider.
