Personally, I was raised in a very pro-life family and church.  I was very against abortion/preachy about it up until my mid-twenties.  Then, I stared to see the impact that making abortion illegal would have and my feelings on the matter became more gray.  Now just over 30 and having been a mother for almost 5 years, I'm quite pro-choice. Although, it would have to be pretty extreme circumstance for me to choose abortion for myself.  It was also so much easier to say, "They should just give the baby up for adoption" before suffering through three pregnancies and bonding with each baby.

If someone like me who had been born child-centric and took care of and educated themselves about children at every opportunity could still struggle at being a good parent (emotionally and physically), I could only imagine what it must be like for a woman to have parenthood forced on her who doesn't want it or is far from ready for it.

 I believe every woman has the right to choose. Becoming a mom has not changed my views.

Being a mom has not changed my opinion.. I am pro choice... But me personally I don't see abortion as a form a birth control. It should only be used in extreme cases

I've always been pro-choice. Becoming a mother just validated that not everyone's cut out to be one.

Nope, ever since I found out what abortion was, it's made me sick that some people actually choose to do that. That's just how I see it.
