I’ve been trying to get this published for 2 years. But apparently women’s magazines aren’t interested in telling the full story. A recent study found that at least 1/3rd of women who’ve had an abortion experience some kind of psychological issues.
I wasn’t raped or molested. My abortion represents the 99% of abortions performed. Even so, for me, It was an indescribable horror, nothing to be celebrated or cheered in favor of. That is MY experience.
I don’t care what Stevie Knicks or other drug addict stars say, MY experience wasn’t a career starter or a life-saver.
Now that being said, I could never be 100 percent against abortion rights for early pregnancy, it may be a necessary evil for extreme circumstances or for women who have been led to believe that they’re not receiving health care unless they can chose to terminate a pregnancy, but once the sensory system has begun to develop and a growing baby can feel pain that is where I draw a solid immovable line. Many doctors are unsure of when exactly this is, some think it’s as early as 8 weeks some say it’s closer to 20.
Either way, inflicting pain on a small helpless creature is wrong, no matter where you come from or why you do it. It’s the same reason I don’t eat veal, and I get unfertilized eggs from farmers without roosters.
No movement, no slogans will ever change my mind on that.
