I really have appreciated all of the comments and I thought the show was really good. I am glad that people have the chance to speak freely about hwat they believe.
I myself had an abortion when I was 15. My boyfriend and I agreed that it was the best descision. I did not come to that descision lightly and my family supported me. Unfortunately, my family took out their anger on the baby's father and he was not allowed to be with me when I had the procedure. I think that father's have a right to be there if they want to, but I don't think that a woman should ever keep a pregnancy because the father wants her to. I am not pro abortion I am pro choice. No one has a right to judge my descision nor do I have the right to judge a woman who decides to keep her baby even if she is not ready to be a mother.
I am not a mother now, and I may never be, but I am grateful for the life I have now. I have no idea what my life would be like if I had kept my child, but I am pretty sure I wouldn't be in a healthy happy relationship like I am now.
I hope that our government never illegalizes abortion again because it won't stop women from getting them. I know we need better education and both men and women need to be responsible for preventing unwanted pregnancies. I never felt comfortable asking my mom to get me on the pill because I knew she would just try to stop me from having sex. My boyfriend at the time was reluctant to get condems and so we often had unprotected sex. I know I was responsible for getting pregnant and for ending my baby's life and only me and my baby's father should get to judge our descision. All parents out there please be open with your kids about sex and encourage them to come to you so that you can try to prevent unwanted pregnancies.
