link was right, i am definitely going to weigh in on this, seeing as i am interning at a planned parenthood. i'm gonna try to make this as short as possible, but here goes:
i'm all for abortion. very pro-choice. its debatable whether or not the guy should have a say in the matter-yes, i think his opinion should be considered, i dont' think he should have the final decision, and one of the problems i'm having at work is the ppl who aren't telling their partners.
those that are against abortion, i understand your reasons. however, i have seen the women that are getting these procedures, and they all have extremely valid reasons. should some of them have made better choices? sure, a few. but then there are the ones that this was that accident child, and they are in no position to be a parent. the decision is hard enough for them, and it seems to me that this decision gets even harder when they choose adoption. i DO however have a problem with the protesters that don't know what the heck they are talking about. we obviously have a bunch outside of our clinic. their posters are either photoshopped, or show things that just....aren't true. like, an almost completely fully developed fetus, and claiming its a 14 week old fetus. wtf? or like, pictures of partial-birth abortions, which are SOOOO illegal in our country. sorry folks, no, planned parenthood doesn't kill babies. your posters lie
anyone who thinks that abortion is a method of EC or regular birth control is completely off their rocker. this is an invasive, possibly painful procedure. i've watched enough of them to know that this is no picnic for these women, and it has scared me enough to NEVER want one for myself! after seeing the situations of the women coming in to get this procedure, i can understand why so many women were willing to get unsafe abortions in the 60s and early 70s. so ultimately, why not talk about that time period if we are going to talk about whether abortion should be legal or not? as with all things, it is going to happen whether it is legal or not. so do we want to keep providing safe, regulated abortions, or do we want to run the risk of having scary people performing these medical procedures?
no matter your thinking, i just feel as if it is preposterous to even contemplate taking away this choice. whether or not you would want one for yourself, or for your significant other, or if you would want the other women in your life to have one, they should still have that CHOICE
