People who have had an abortion, what are your feelings on it?
I’m a regular in the Fluther scene. I created this account to ask this question. (kinda cool that Fluther is such a great community that I felt the need to create an alias to protect my alias :D)
This is NOT intended to be an abortion debate. I’m looking for personal experiences. I know it’s a very personal issue, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets very few answers, or answers from other aliases. If a discussion gets going, I hope it stays mature and respectful.
Women who have had abortions, and men (or women) who have had a partner who have- What made you decide to take this route? How did your decision line up to your previous or current moral and religious beliefs? Is it something you still think about? Do you still think it was the right thing to do? Do you commemorate the date in any way? Have your feelings about the issue changed since you had the procedure?
So you know I’m not coming out of left field or anything, I had one about 6 years ago. I have never believed life begins at conception, but somehow I still struggle with my decision even though I was in no way ready to be a parent at the time. I’m just looking for other experiences… not for anti-choice shaming.
