It is my firm opinion that it is in no way the government's place to decide these things for us. In my mind, all options*, and the pros and cons of each should be well known and easy to research without biases getting in the way *Abortion, birthing and then giving the baby to the state or adoptive parents, which can often be found beforehand, all the support and help available for new mothers, etc The government is not our moral police. As far as late term abortions, I haven't formed an opinion, every time I've tried to research it on the internet, I have trouble outlasting the pictures of dead babies pro-life people use to short circuit logic and go right to emotions instead, and the thick propaganda of both sides. My personal opinion is that if you're that far along, have the baby and give it away. But that's my opinion. I'm very tired of small groups of people deciding what's best for everyone, damnit. People should be able to make their own choices. And the government should be there making sure each choice is above all safe and regulated. Hopefully, this being the Ether, this won't spark any flaming. If it does, I'll delete it. As far as me, if I found out I was pregnant right now, today, I wouldn't seek an abortion. I personally wouldn't have one unless it was a situation where they baby isn't forming right, or something, and will absolutely die before birth, and likely take me with it, and the doctors think it's the best choice. And even that, I'd have to think about. But I believe it's anyone's right to get an abortion. At least as far as early into the pregnancy. My sister has had two abortions. Both were very early into the pregnancy. Both were when she discovered her pregnancy after leaving her husband, whom she leaves periodically because he's violent and then goes back to because she gets scared. She says she doesn't regret either one, that their household couldn't support four kids, etc. It does get to her sometimes, and she calls me, because no one besides our grandmother knows, and she'll just give Joda a hard time. I never say anything negative because A. She's upset, and I'm not going to say anything she isn't thinking and B. it's done. Our world can be so fucked up. Calm and logical debate is always welcome, knee-jerk reactions, not so much. On this particular topic, and said debate should be through PM or an IM service, me thinks.
