I don't care.
Honestly, they can take it up to 180th trimester (in the case of most politicians, for example).
You're not a person until you are in my phone. (Bill Hicks).
Ok -- now that I got THAT out of my system, I have always been anti-abortion in the sense that I would never have one personally, or be involved
personally with a woman that would choose to have one. Some things, like abortion for example, as well as world travel, basic political ideology,
religious preference and so on are non-negotiable in a relationship.
I wouldn't want to be with anyone who didn't want to travel to Italy occasionally, or Paraguay, for that matter. Nor would I want to be in a romantic
relationship with someone who has garbage taste in music. Nickelback or Coldplay fans need not apply. This goes double for modern country fans. Live
and let live, I say, but I don't want to be forced to listen to it.
As to abortion for other people? I don't give a rats ass. Other people's personal choices are none of my freakin' business.
That said, as a practical matter, I don't think abortions after the first trimester are generally a good idea, unless the health and well being of the
mother are at stake.
Why I'm pro-choice: Access to birth control prevents abortions. No conception = no abortions. The calculus is fairly simple, actually. I believe that
nothing is ever wasted. That a baby will be born regardless, and that the universe is a system designed to recycle souls, for lots of different
reasons and purposes. So I don't get hung up on religious arguments, or "sanctity of life." Especially with people who support war, or the death
penalty, but hate abortion. I've no time or patience for hypocrites.
And I say all this as a proud single dad to two amazing children that I wanted, have loved every day of their lives, and would gladly die for.
