An 11-year-old girl left pregnant after she was allegedly kidnapped and raped must keep the baby - because of a controversial new law.
A duty is something you must do? Sorry but I came to the conclusion that no one really has to do much of anything in this world.
So what is worse, allowing an abortion in this case, or forcing a child to go through with this pregnancy from her rapist?

I guess the monster that raped the 11 year old should have thought to before he let his actions place her life in such a dangerous position. But What we are asking just seems to be asking a tad but too much I guess.
Why won't you accept that though?
Because you choose not to?

A duty is something you must do? Sorry but I came to the conclusion that no one really has to do much of anything in this world. They just have to be ready to be hit with consequences for their decisions. Once I finally realized this my life got alot easier. Not only on the side of trying to meet people's expectations of what they thought I had to do but also the frustration and waste of energy that oftened occurred when others didn't meet my expectations as to what they had to do.
But what can I say when you have a husband who spends all his free time at his friends house playing stupid computer games while you are working forty plus hours a week and living on four hour of sleep broken up through the day. Well you are gonna find yourselves doing things you don't want because you have to because they need to be done and if you don't nobody will.
Sometimes the lines are rather blurry. Like when you break you danged ankle and have to call your husband home and then hobble out to the kitchen in tears to cook supper because the kids need to be Fed. It certainly wasn't "honor" I was feeling at the time. Might have felt some tinge of honor if hubby could have hung around more often and helped. Hey bet if he had done that he would have realize that I was actually hurting pretty badly. But no it wasn't honor. My guess it was love for the kids mixed in with a if not me then who sense of responsibility along with a whole mess of sheer rage.
Maybe when mothers are treated with honor and respect for their contribution to society they will see motherhood as an honorable venture.

Ya know, I did my duty and had 2 kids, called it done & had a tubal ligation. And I'm tired of arguing nice about my ability to choose an abortion if my tubal ever fails.
All of you anti-abortionists, screw. off.
I did THE MOST IRON-CLAD BIRTH CONTROL SHORT OF A HYSTERECTOMY. And it has a risk of failure. If it fails, I do not want a third kid. Period, end of discussion, and I don't want another birth to "help" somebody else have a family, either. That's not a contract job, you're not paying me for that. Even if it was, I'm not keen on pregnancy. It wasn't bad, but not worth a third time, either.
Once again, I'm done having kids. I'm not having more just because some my-way-or-the-highway braindead Helen Lovejoy-wannabe thinks I should put up with the end result of a tubal failure. Screw off. This is not up to you, and never should be.
