Anonymous asked: It is your perogative to cut ties with someone - but you realize that you are actually telling people what to do with their bodies. You are in favor of controlling their actions. Your statement is basically blackmail: "do what I want with your body or I will have nothing more to do with you." Also, your statements about adoption are appalling ignorant.
I’m saying that it should be legal to all women. I don’t have to personally support it to know that it is within their rights.
Furthermore, adopting children is appalling? I’m terribly sorry that you feel that way.

I’m happy that you are pleased with it. However I’d like to point out that you did say that abortion isn’t an option. Fact of the matter though is that it is an option and within their rights. It isn’t for anyone to tell them what is and isn’t an option, agree with it or not.
For topics as sensitive and controversial such as these, it pays to be a little more specific and understanding to the issue.
If you’re “mature” enough to have sex, you’re mature enough to deliver the baby you’ll possibly create, abortion isn’t an option.
if you’re “mature” enough to own a gun, you’re mature enough to die from being fucking shot. medical care isn’t an option.
Whereas I’m not in favor of telling a woman what to do with their body, I can agree with the OP. When it comes down to it, sex is a mature act to be done between two consenting and responsible people with the knowledge that they very well could create a life and inherit that responsibility. Personally, if it were my partner that became pregnant unexpectedly and got an abortion, I would completely cut ties with her. While that is her right, I still will not be a part of that.
I understand that sex is not always done with consent though. Rape happens no matter how hard we try to prevent it. It can lead to an unwanted pregnancy. It’s tragic and hard not to understand the thought process behind a woman getting an abortion in those circumstances, agree with it or not.
I’d just like to point out that there is always adoption though. There are many families that cannot have their own children and adoption agencies involve a lot of red tape. What may be a mistake or tragic consequence of some horror committed might just be the gift that a family has been waiting for.
