I'm gonna get bashed for this...

do your kids know that you had an abortion or considered having one? "hey, you were supposed to have a brother/sister, but I didn't want him/her." Or better yet, "I didn't want you at first, so I considered having an abortion." Have you told your kids that if you were in a situation like that?

  • My mother told me that she was going to have an abortion with me. I wish she would have waited until i was older...like past puberty, but I'm fine with it now.

  • Not yet...she's only 2.

    But in about 10 years or so...depending upon her maturity level...she will eventually know my past.

  • No, because ive never had or considered one, but my mom consideredone with me, and i appreciate the fact that she discussed it with me. Its a real consideration for some people, and my mom being open with me helped me trust her. I dont blame her for considering it, im just thankful she came to the conclusion she did.

    I considered adoption with my son, didnt go through with it, but will talk to him about it when the time's right.

  • i actually got into a fist fight with my SIL over this. she was mad at her then 8 yr old DD and the 2 of them were in a heated screaming match (still don't know why any adult would have a screaming match with an 8 yr old, but that should paint a pic of my SIL lol). it ended with SIL screaming in front of all of the children "I SHOULD HAVE ABORTED YOU WHEN I HAD THE CHANCE YOU LITTLE FUC-" and at that precise moment, my closed fist connected with her jaw. lmao it was worth the 2 hours in a holding cell. My 1st and only jail experience was certainly not without good reason.

  • Yes my boys will know that I considered one if I got pregnant from my rape. That will be covered when we cover sex ed.

  • I've never had an abortion, nor have I ever needed to consider one.  My children know that and they also know that I'm pro-choice.  My 17 year old daughter is also pro-choice.

    I understand where you are coming from but do you really think that hitting their mother in front of the children isn't going to do as much damage?

  • My children do not know yet my past. But as they get older, and I feel that them knowing my past would help them, yes I will share it with them.
    But my pg's with them were a welcome and wanted part of our lives!

  • I don't think this is bash worthy. It's a pretty good question actually. My dh was almost aborted. My mil changed her mind and ran out of the clinic...I'm glad she did, although she drives me nuts...
