  • My mom said she had one before me and I'm the oldest of 2. I'm 32 now and she STILL brings it up sometimes. I always pray for her to have peace. It must have been difficult.

    As for abortion, I don't personally agree, but I understand how people can make that choice when pressured by life and lack of support.

    My heart goes out...

  • Are you considering having one? I am pro-choice myself so I am not judging. Its just that if you are considering having an abortion and are looking for guidance, I don't know if this is a good place to find it.

    I would recommend that anyone considering an abortion should seek counseling first to see if you can handle it emotionally. Some people are able to deal with it better than others. That doesn't make them insensitive, only better able to deal with their emotions.

  • No. I've heard of some serious post adoption trauma though. Abortion, birth, adoption, parenthood, etc are all crazy on our emotions. Each person is different. I don't think it's fair to "warn" women of abortion pain but not adoption pain. We all know the pregnant women are the least of pro lifers' concern. But as for the question, no. Abortion didn't affect the women I knew harshly. It was the right choice. I thought about all this too. I'm certain abortion would've been less painful than adoption. But I opted for motherhood.

  • Yeah jus1...we wouldn't want to traumatize someone...much better to just get rid of that pesky BABY! What a ridiculous excuse!! I am sorry if your heart broke over giving a baby up...but try and think about the BABY....think they would rather be dead so you can feel better?!
