does anyone else agree that it is entirely STUPID that a women can have a choice about getting an abortion but cant decide before 2 kids (and 25yrs) that she is done being pregnant?? We cant get fixed until we have 2 kids and turn 25. what kind of b-s is that??

  • Yeah it sucks.. Each state is different and even if the state doesn't have a law/guideline about it the Dr.'s office will..

  • Yes, there are age limits and number of children limits here in Arkansas before you are allowed to have a tubal ligation. I personally think that it should be MY choice and no one else's whether or not I want my tubes tied!

  • I can just image over flowing foster homes and such where you live. It is like saying that everyone is suited to be a parent and every parent is suited for kids. I would think I would want to stop if I had had a child with special needs first so I could give all my love and support to that child instead of being stretched to the point of breaking from exhaustion. I would hate to see what your states welfare also looks like with family needs higher than need be. 0 or 100 a women should be able to choose whats right for her. Plus I see abortion as murder and would rather see a women responsible enough to be fixed if parenting is not for her.

  • it is murder(personal opinion) and its silly that we should be told how many kids we must have. its like saying, here we will help you kill your kids every time you get pregnant cause you dont want them, but we will not help you stop getting pregnant by giving you a choice that actually helps!! now, of course we could all go celibate, and never have sex ever ever again, and then we could make SURE we wouldnt get pregnant, but that will not happen. and we should decide how many children we want. not the state.
