Whoever said abortion hurts worse than giving birth is totally ridiculous, that was not the question.
The question is, do you believe in abortion? It doesn't matter what we think. It is 100% down to personal choice.
In my opinion, if a woman could not cope with a baby, for financial or emotional or phyiscal reasons, it is her choice, she is the one who would have to live with it either way. Abortion is available, and is sometimes a better option than a miserable life for mum, dad and child. It can also be a way of making sure a child is not born to suffer...if that child has disabilities that would mean its quality of life and life span were very poor and it was crueller for it to live than be aborted. In this age, we have the option available to us, and no one is right to judge any woman for her own personal choice. Would they prefer another unwanted unloved child on the planet that is already over crowded? Would they like to pay for that child if the parents do not take responsibility for it? Would they want a 12 year old girl to have a baby, or a woman who had been raped or abused by a family member?
You and your sister should agree that you don't agree. This is not a subject that has a right or a wrong answer and neither of you needs to 'win' in this situation. Whatever is best for the individual situation . We should never judge another woman's choices or we leave ourselves open to be judged, and nobody lives a blameless life without hard choices in it.
I hope if someone here is struggling with a decision they will receive support and love whatever the outcome is.
I have had an abortion when I fell pregnant, whilst using birth control, at too young an age to cope, and in a poor relationship. Now I am pregnant, many years later, with a very much wanted child . I could never imagine abortion now, but those years ago I was just not ready for a child and 'facing the consequences' would have meant that me and the child had a miserable hard life. Now I feel I am ready to be a good role model and loving mother and have a fiancee that is 100% involved and will be an amazing dad. My baby will have a great start in life. Having an abortion was the hardest thing I have ever done but I feel my decision was the right one at the time. I had to have counselling as it felt unnatural and I felt guilty, but I came to terms with it.
Just my opinion, and those who don't believe in abortion are entitled to theirs, and will never have one...so we should live and let everyone else live their way.
