We all have our own choices

So the other day I was watching a movie about abortion, and I saw a group gathered around the abortion clinic scolding any vulnerable woman who walked in there. Then I thought to myself, who are they to tell the women what they can and can't do? Would you rather a child grow up in a horrible environment, either neglected by her regretful mother or abused in a foster home, than to save them from that even before their life in the world began? Though that's not always the case, and many stories of happy adopted children have been told, I still can't get over the fact that so many children are neglected and abused. Some unfit mothers do drugs during the pregnancy and the newborns become crack babies! So you'd rather have that happen then an unborn child with barely no understanding of its surroundings be aborted?
It's none of my business, it's your body, you do whatever you like with it. But other people, who they have probably never met, should not protest against their decision; it's hard for them already. They have just gone through the most devastating decision of giving a baby up because they can't support them, and you bash them for it? ESPECIALLY the men; oh you have no idea what goes on in a woman's head! So don't you DARE tell us what to do!
All I'm saying is, every body has their own responsibility, and when you are given the responsibility of another life inside your body, weigh out the pros and cons, then decide. I wish to live in a world someday where no matter what difficult, personal decision you make would be nobody else's business.

  1. *clap clap clap* I couldn't agree with you more. Nicaragua is a very religious country, and something I cannot stand is when priests condemn abortion. It's like George Carlin said: when the Pope and his buddies have all gone through nine months of pregnancy, gave birth to the kid, and raised it on a minimum wage salary, I'll be happy to see what they have to say about abortion. It's exactly what you said. It's a personal decision, and other people have no right whatsoever to tell someone else what to do or criticize a decision that has absolutely nothing to do with them. As far as I'm concerned, every mother must be a willing mother, every child, a wanted child.
