Absolutely hate

Seeing mindless, biased, uneducated, guilt trip posts about abortion.

It is a choice every woman deserves to make about her own body.

Had a huge “discussion” about this with some die hard Christian who was completely closed minded about the whole issue recently and now anytime I see any chain mail posts presenting these ridiculous, unrealistic situations of these murderous blood thirsty women who go about killing their unborn children for fun or because their boyfriend left them just makes me furious. This particular guy didn’t seem to consider the impact on the woman carrying the child whatsoever and his answer was “there’s plenty of people out there who want children and can’t have them”, if there are so many people out there wanting to take on unwanted kids why are foster homes and social services over-run with kids with no place to go and no stable up-bringing and why is so much money spend on IVF and other fertility treatment? People want their own kids at the end of the day, not the ones who’ve been damaged by neglect or even abuse and if people were responsible enough in the first place children would not be brought into those situations. But I guess I’m going off topic slightly.

Abortion is not a decision taken lightly by any person and their decision, not ours or anyone else’s, should be respected and women should not be made to feel guilty or persecuted for that choice.
