(Watching the end of the debate before heading off to work)
I can not think of a single person that I know that is "pro-abortion." Please do not ever use such language again, for you hurt more people than you know. While you're at it, please stop saying "young women having to make that choice" because it is not only young women. What about the woman that is in her 50, thinks that she's beyond child bearing age (with good reason) and finds out that she's pregnant? What if a woman's doctor lets her know up front that there will be a choice, because of disease, between her life and the fetus she's carrying?
Think before you speak,
No one is pro-abortion. A good post by a pastor friend that sums up the way I feel is HERE. Abortion is a choice that no one wants to have to make, but the reality is that sometime's it's necessary.
I have been a part of such a decision, and it is not an easy decision that is made ever, and not one to be taken lightly. (For the record, the pregnancy was not mine, I was dating her sister) She was devastated to have such a decision to make, and was devastated afterwards, as is expected.
What is of much more value is education - conservatives need to open up to real, honest sex education. It needs to start early. I was astounded at my last church about the things that our Middle Schooler's did NOT know about sex and reproduction. I was more astounded to find out how much their parents did not know. We need to reshape the curriculum and not go after school boards that try to make that happen.
I am obviously pro-choice. Our country is based on choice and freedom. You can probably glean my views on other issues like gay marriage, too.
