c-at-sea asked: What if you had a daughter and she was raped? Family gatherings would be the most torturous if her grandmother or uncle asked her who the father is, especially if she didn't have a choice other than to have her first pregnancy caused from rape. Child bearing is life-changing. I, myself, and every other women out there should have a say on when/how we bring another life into this world. I respect your opinion, but please open your mind on this subject.

We’ll as far as keeping an open mind goes I was pro choice myself for years until I really started looking into the subject and listened to both sides of the argument in full. And if I had a daughter who was raped she shouldn’t get blamed or criticized in any way if it was never her fault to begin with. But despite how I came off in my post I wouldn’t make a law going against abortion and or force her to go through with a pregnancy if she really really didn’t want it. I’m just explaining that I wouldn’t support it either.

ABORTION, PRO-LIFE

You know this whole pro-choice movement has always seemed a little off and contradictory to me. Is it really for health reasons like I’ve heard many arguments claim or is it in my opinion that many women cant seem to accept the role mother nature has given to them as child bearers, so they don’t feel its fair & they need this pro choice movement to give them some control over themselves from nature much more so then from men regardless of the conceived child’s opinion on whether or not it wants to live. Now unless the pregnancy is a major health risk to the mother then it’s understandable otherwise I couldn’t be for abortions. Also, If its that inconvenient for you financially or socially then give the child to someone else, if me and my girl slipped up and she didn’t want the baby, even if there were possible birth defects I’d tell her to give the child to me & we can end the relationship. I also hate it when pro abortion women contradict themselves expecting men to man up and help take care of a child they don’t want while women don’t have to “WOMAN UP” themselves and instead get to cop out the pregnancy and call it pro choice. 

(side note) in case of rape, as unfortunate as that may be, its not the child’s fault what happened and shouldn’t be punished for someone else’s actions. Give it up for adoption if you must
