You're Entitled to Your Opinion
You know when people say you are entitled to your own opinion but what they really mean is you are entitled to their opinion. I am probably guilty of this as well. Today I was having a conversation with someone who I have known for about 4 years about the abortion stand. I have to say I am totally against abortion even in rape situations. Why? Bluntly I think it is murder and rape being a horrible thing I know actually first hand, yet who gives us the right to do away with a human life. Anyway while I was talking with this person I said the all too common words, " You are entitled to your opinion", I really meant I will keep talking until you see my point. I clearly explained that I think adoption is a better option.
My point is people including myself don't like when people don't agree with them. It is human nature. Usually if I don't agree with someone about a major topic it means I am not like minded and I don't want to get to know them anymore than I have. Maybe this wrong or maybe this is childish I don't know. Although some things are just trivial to me and I still like them.
I must say though that anyone who has had an abortion or been apart of encouraging someone to have one that I don't judge you. Most people that I have spoken too who have had one regret it and the act often haunts them. Not all, but most. I also talked to a person whose mother was just about to have an abortion, she was prepped and on the table and changed her mind and jumped off the table. He was the almost abortion. He now has five children.
Life choices are hard no one said they were easy, but they can be right. When I was sixteen I thought I was pregnant and my grandmother who raised me said "that's OK you will have an abortion". Thankfully, I wasn't pregnant but I would have done what my Grandma said at the time. So no I don't judge, I just state what I believe now. And no I can't change the beliefs of anyone but maybe I can make someone think about it before making that decision. We are all titled to our own opinions but will be judged for our choices.
