I also have had abortions, and I wish the option was never available. It prays upon the weak and naive.
May God bless the souls that have been lost due to the barbaric practice of abortion and my negligence. May the women suffering from abortion be pain
free and live a happy life. I pray for all, including those that take their unborn baby's life...
We all need prayers.
God Bless you all even the people that believe pro-choice is the right way... Maybe with this blessing we can reach a common ground of morality and
God acts through all of us, Even though we disagree he's showing us other peoples minds and perspective on life.
May the endless murdering of the unborn be stopped, I will pray for it.
If you believe in God , I hope you do, there is still hope for you and others.
God bless you all, I will respond to more comments later.
Lastly my wife, who has had the abortions, will never be the same. She has had suicidal tendencies and self destructive behaviors because of the
abortions. And also a not so nice butterfly effect has happened because of it. I will never give up on her though for the pain I've put her through
and the choices I influenced her to make.
May God take pity on my soul as I am only a weak human. Pray for me friends.
Wow. I'm truly impressed and touched yoyo. I truly commend and compliment you on your concern and dedication to your wife. In my personal opinion,
those statements are truly compassionate and I believe you when you say that you want to help ease her anguish over the matter. And I am in no way
While we will likely never agree on the subject, I personally find your story is one of the strongest cases for pro-choice to be the strongest
argument yet. Note...I'm not trying to change your opinions about the matter or twist your words. I'm just saying that that's the lesson I get
from your story.
You observe the fallout from the abortions that your wife had and find it to be a horrible, horrible, amount of suffering. You sort of hinted at the
idea that you carry or feel a great deal of guilt for influencing her about the matter.
Admittedly...I'm coming from the child's side of the spectrum. That very same mental and emotional anguish, guilt, hopelessness, and low self-esteem
that your wife has experienced and that you have helped through is very, very much like what selfharmonise experiences on a daily basis with the very
troubled and damaged kids she has adopted. (Forgive me if I speak out of turn and/or you feel if I am speaking for you selfharmonise. I'm just
sort of putting 2+2 together based upon the information in this thread alone. I don't pretend to really know what it has been like for you...and
feel free to correct me if I am wrong)
Likewise...I'm very familiar MYSELF with the child's end of things. As stated previously...my wife and cousin were both adopted and it affects them
to this day. I WASN'T adopted...but I got to grow up in a house where nobody gave two sh&^ts if I lived or died...right up until the day I was
turned out on the street THE DAY AFTER I graduated high school, despite graduating with honors at 17 yrs old because I skipped a grade earlier, having
worked two jobs since I was 14 yrs old, having a perfect attendance record in high school, and only ONCE got a $70 underage drinking ticket. A lot of
people would have considered that to be a damn near "perfect" kid...my thanks was "get the hell out and don't come back"...no surprise...I was
not wanted since the day I was born. Plain and simple. It didn't matter what I did or didn't do...I wasn't going to change their minds or their
resentment towards me. Sure...things are better now...but given the option of having to do it again or to not have to deal with any of it...I'd bow
out early EVERY SINGLE TIME. My wife wouldn't miss me...because she wouldn't have known me. It would have just saved a whole lot of needless and
So my conclusion on the matter is that irregardless of whether you are talking/legislating a woman into or out of an abortion...SOMEBODY is going to
be in a whole hell of a lot of misery for a long, long, LONG time.
...and I'll have no part of it.
That's just me. I respect your stance and feelings about the matter. But I hope you can see why I feel that way. To me...forcing an unwanted child
into this world just shifts all the troubles it caused your wife right down the line to the one who is purportedly the "innocent" one.
