I have something to share.
I have two sisters and they both had had an abortion.
One had it when she was about 17 and the other one had it when she was about 21.
They both now have children of their own, 2 each but....
This is when I have a double opinion in abortion, I think that they would have struggle to raise the child. They were really young, they diidnt have a
job and they certeinly hadnt live enough to know about such a responsability but the pregnancies of one of them became a bit dangerous for her.
One of my sisters had 2 spontaneous abortions and one premature child (less than 7 months) with a lot of bleeding through the pregnancy because of the
bad surgery they did to her when she aborted by choice the first child. It was very traumatising for her to go through this.
Now what I would really suggest is that if you ahve an abortion you:
a) do it at the earliest stage possible
b) do it with a clinic that is well known and knows exactly what they are doing (she did it back home where abortion is illegal and clinics could not
c) think really well what could be the future.
My other sister had complication in her first pregnancy but it was not related to the abortion and the second one was a very good pregnancy and a good
birth too but she is constantly thinking about what she did. I always tell her that it was a decision that was taken already and that is in the past
but she still thinks about it and I dont think she can forgive herself. That probably has to do because she is still with the same person (now her
husband) but I do believe as an outsider that it would had made her life quite dfficult, specially starting at 17.
So, I believe abortion is a delicate situation and it really depends on the situation of the woman and also that the woman has the choice.
If my friend is raped, I would encourage to have an abortion but if anotehr friend make slove to her boyfriend and cannot have the child I would
suggest abortion and also adoption because then the child will have the opportunity to have a family that can take care emotionally and financially of
But again, that is a decision that should be personal and well thought
