In response to my post about methamphetamine orphans, mountainkiss
asked: "do you believe in the right to choose?"
My reply: "I do. As I was writing my comments, it occurred to me that my general opinion could be misconstrued....
I'll probably do a full post on it later. but in very brief:
I am pro-choice. I believe in the right of every woman to choose.
I myself cannot see a circumstance where I personally would choose abortion.
I have absolutely no right to force any person to choose according to my opinions. Absolutely no right. Neither does anyone else.
I have friends who have had abortions. I have friends who've given babies up for adoption. I have friends who have had and kept babies. And I honor all of their choices.
I am glad that I have a choice. *nod*"
This is really by no means a full post, but I felt that it ought to be set out there for the New Kids. I'm aware that, in the previous post, I spoke of my responsibility to Elayna as a person from Day One - I don't want that to lead people to believe, erroneously, that I am anti-choice. This was my choice, and I honor and respect the choice of others.
