Got an illegal abortion in a back alley from the neighborhood crack dealer turned abortionist and now you're bleeding to death? Good riddance, I'm going to eat a sandwich.
What a backwards and arrogant statement. Shows how little you actually care about human life!

I found out I was pregnant at barely 4 weeks gestation. Due to the medical circumstances, I felt it was best to make a decision right then and there...it was already going to be hard enough and something I was so against...never in a million years did I think I was going to be in a medical situation where there was a risk to my unborn fetus due to several vaccines and pills. I always figured I would accidentally get pregnant before marriage, at a bad time, and just have my baby.

Well, just to let you all know..the ab. clinic told me I had to wait until 6 weeks so that the "blood clot is in a perfect position". That was horrific to me. I wanted to strangle the woman thru the phone and couldn't believe I would have to carry my precious angel and know what I was about to have to do...later on I found out I could have just gone with a medical..but unfortunately I was working and had no off days and couldn't afford to be bleeding and cramping/miscarrying in agony at work..I had a super evil boss.

I fully support abortions. I also have no problem carrying one out if I had to.

On the topic of adoption vs abortion. I don't understand why so many people think adoption is the caring option. Maybe if you knew for a fact that the child was being taken by parents, but the US adoption system is a big mess.

I have to wonder why so many pro-life people who advocate adoption over abortion don't consider adopting one of these kids in the system. Especially a disabled kid, who may not have ever been given a chance to have a family.

I'm curious.

Because they don't care after the kid id born, that's not their problem. Their goal is the birth of the fetus. Whatever mess happens after that...oh well. Also no one wants to admit it but there are currently 1.3 million families waiting to adopt( a new born, no one wants a damaged child ) in the US. There are 800,000 avg abortions a year so at that rate it would only take two yrs and there would be no one else wanting to adopt. Then what? What do we do with the other 800,000 unwanted children a yr? That seems to be something no one wants to discuss. Because the truth is, they don't have a solution. If they did there would be no kids in foster homes or homeless on the street. They don't care what happens afterward their only blindsided goal is to get them here. I think better to have a plan than just to wait and see......Oh well, guess some people just don't get it!

Healthy white infants are easily adopted in America. The "adoption system" that is a disaster is the "adoption from foster care system" of kids who have been removed from so-called "parents."
Anyway, I say again and again, one's opinion of abortion is of interest for a discussion. What I worry about is how that person will vote or send contributions or do something about the legality of abortion *for everyone*.

I'm a woman and i'm a 100% pro-life, i personally think that child is a gift. One of my close friend had an abortion when she was a teenager, she said to me that she would do evertyhing to undo it. It just doesn't make sense, why would you get rid of you own child,your own blood ?
Some people say that it's about woman's right to control her life, but what about that unborn child's right to life ?
Remember that it's not your right to take someone's life especially your own child

the day I can become pregnant, is the day I will have a stand on abortion.---and It won't be a call for a vote neither. I do as I please, when I please. It's called Freedom.

Absolutely.

If it were men not women who got preg there wouldn't even BE a "Right to Life" anti-abortion movement.
