Food for Thought..

Can for one minute, we understand that it is foolish to judge and make comments about things that "you yourself" have never expierenced? Welfare, abortion...ect. If you have never been in that situation, why give advice and tell others what "they" should do .

  • If you have constructive answers and have never been in the particular situation...then so be it. If you are on the outside looking in with nothing positive to say, then I agree keep your comments to yourself.

  • It's called a point of view and you can always take it with a grain of salt, or leave it by the wayside.

  • I agree with the poster. If you have never gone through it. All you can really do is try an empathize with that individual. Do you think people like getting government assistance? Since most abortions are done out of fear., I do not think they would do it if they had an alternative. So we should not judge on our personal emotions. We need to find out exactly the circumstances.

  • A lot of time people ASK for our opinions. When it comes to things like abortion and welfare I have very strong opinions and if you ask for them I will give them. It dosent mean you going to like them.

  • If someone does not want other people's opinions then why in the hell are they posting questions for the whole world to read? If women on here are so overly sensitive maybe they should keep their issues to themselves.
