How can someone say that "they have no choice when they have an abortion"

I seen so many women on CM said they had no choice but to have an abortion. How can someone force you to do it.

  • The original choice was to not participate in the behavior that causes pregnancy if you are not prepared to live with the consequences of that behavior.

  • until your in that situation you need to keep your mouth shut, and if you was in that situation and went ahead with the pregnancy and every thing turned out ok for you more power to you, but you arent the person who had to make that choice and they have to live with it no matter what you or others think.

  • I agree with the previous posters. While you may not agree with them getting abortions, it is not your place to say if they had a choice or were or weren't forced to do it. You aren't God, so don't judge them.

  • Maybe it was a life and death situation, or there was no way the baby would survive outside the womb. You never know, and it's not your business anyway.

  • I agree with what everyone is saying is the OPs judgement. (I disagree that she was judging..she just asked a question..happens every day here at CM!). Unless there was a medical necessity for the mother's sake, there is always a choice to continue or not continue a pregnancy. Always.
    No, it is not our place to make that decision for others; that's why i'm pro-choice. But there is always choices.

  • It's none of your business. You know that, or would not be posting such a question anon.

    Anyone who has had an abortion does not have to justify it to you, or to anyone else.

  • If a woman murders her child she should at the very least own her choice and quit playing the victim card. I have no sympathy for woman who kill the innocent. Don't want to hear their story or feel bad for them. They should keep their damn legs closed or at the very least use contraception. Most abortions are done because women fail to protect themselves or use protection properly. They want to act like whores them murder a baby they should realize someone is going to call them out for it. Can we even really call them women more like trash.
