HAVE YOU HAD AN ABORTION?

    If you have had an abortion or debating having an abortion in the future, please add your insight. I do not bring this question to judge or to hate. I simply ask to learn the logic of one getting or that has had an abortion. By adding your information, you could possibly be giving future minds a different perspective to view before making the decision. If you have had an abortion, do you regret it or are you comfortable with it? I will contest and deny any hate on the thread. Thanks

      I have never had an abortion, simply because I have never had a situation that might call for one.  When I was 16 I had a "scare" and I know I would have probably had one.  I was greatful when my "scare" turned out to be a false alarm.  I would have one now, only if I found out my child was going to be terminally ill.  I wouldn't put a child through any suffering.  The point is that situation dictates everyones' actions.  There are times when abortion is wrong, and there are times when it is called for. I have mixed feelings about it.

        Thank You for adding your perspective. I must rephrase: Thank You for adding your "logical" perspective without judgement.

      Interesting personal question Marine. However, I'm guessing you are inclined towards people to not have abortions.(My opinion)  May I congratulate you in advance on the arrival of your new baby due in September this year smile

        I will not answer due to the fact I don't want my personal opinion to relay upon future individuals that post whom have had or debating an abortion. As for your best wishes, thank you very much. Much appreciated.

      Thanks fiery. I truly hope some have courage to post. If one is content or regretfull of an abortion, either perspective would add an excellent insight and knowledge of "why" they get/got the abortion. One may even truly recognize a different perspective from their previous thoughts on abortion. In the debate of life, all perspectives are valued.

    my wife has, she got caught when taking the pill. After discussions we both decided it was not the time for another baby and that having another baby would burden our lives.

    The decision was not taken lightly and sometimes I still think of what if. But at the time it suited us to take this option.

      I would first like to say: Thank You. The courage you displayed for posting is more brave than words can express.

      When you think "what if", do you have any regret for the abortion or do you still feel more like it was the right decision? Does the right decision in your logic overpower any questions ? When you have the "what if" questions, please give me more insight on this if possible. Thank You for adding your insight.

    Once again I would like to add. To all future postings from those who had an abortion, "your insight" will be read by hundreds if not thousands in the future. It takes a highly powerful individual to speak their logic on a public stage while a follower may remain unspoken. I do not wish to preach religion as I am not religious. I simply wish to understand your logic. Thank You.

    marinealways24posted 8 years ago

    My wife asked me: Why wouldn't someone speak up if they were content with their abortion? My response: Why would someone speak up in the hateful judgemental society we live in? Why would one speak up to be ridiculed by preaching and religion? Why would one speak up to have judgement placed on them by peers? Why would someone speak up when the majority speaks from emotion rather than logic? This is why I say, speaking rather than silence is a truly courageous act that is truly commendable.

          Understood. Thank You for adding. When looking back on the decision, are you 100% content you made the right choice for yourself or do you have the slightest doubt or regret?

          I like your candor.  I think it is brave of you to speak out when a lot of people would be afraid to.  Alot of women go through what you have been through.  Your sense of freedom in your speaking about it is inspirational to us all.

    It was about 7 years ago. I had found a website that actually gave a donation to people who couldnt afford it. They didnt pay for the entire process but a small donation.

    Yes looking back it was the best decision, I just wish i would have moved outa the home rite after I did this because I used to sleep on the couch and one night a few months later he got me pregnant again and I didnt even know it. If you get what i am saying?

      Understood. Thank You being brave to share your experience. I will not say whether I agree with you or not because I will not judge you. There is no logic in emotion or judgement. My entire goal was to understand your logic for your decision. If you have any other thoughts on your decision, please feel free to share. Thank You

      I do not hesitate in telling you that you did the right thing.  That is not the circumstances in which a life should be conceived.  The sin is on the impregnator, not you.

          My bad....he was a good guy.

          Where have you been?  When the abortion question comes up religion and sin are right there behind it, hand in hand.  There are many here that would try to tell K that the sin was her's because she had an abortion.  My comment was merely a pre-emptive strike against those people...the people that always blame the women.  No, I certainly don't have the power to judge sin, but I don't think that I am going to have many detractors on this one....I mean, his penis just didn't fall into her vagina, did it?

            You judging the other is taking the point away from the topic. No one is debating whether actions are good and bad. You making assumptions on her other at the time is taking away from the point of the thread. Keep your judgments of sin to yourself please.

              You are asking me where have I been? I'm asking where others have been. This is not a debate on religion or sins. How much progress do you think your sin judgements have made so far? You can live by your creations, I will live by logic.

      Thank You for adding. From my perspective of having a jacked up life at times, I can truly say the harder will eventually equate to stronger and wiser. If you convince yourself to look for hope for the better, you will always have the chance of finding the better. If you do not hope and search for the better, you will only make progress to the worst. Not trying to preach as I do not agree with preachers. Just trying to give you another perspective to view. Thank You

      In my belief, there is no "logic" in religion or preaching, only emotions and irrationality. I have my individual opinion on abortion, yet this thread is not to relay my view, only to get the insight of those in a logical mindset when faced with abortion. You are extremely brave and I highly commend you. Thank You

      A true religious preacher should offer words of comfort. Hey, I got a question for ya...why do you always make yourself out to be some kinda party-till-i-drop kinda girl in the forums? Talking about how  many drinks you had in a night and how naughty you got and all that stuff? All well and good. But do you really wanna be taken seriously in here. Or you just want everyone to take you like some party girl. You just seem like a smart lady to be dumbing yourself down like that. No qualms. Just an opinion.

        I wast just wondering why you think "party girls" are dumb?  Smart people aren't serious all the time.  We need to blow off stress too (!)and there's nothing like sipping a margarita and swirling around a dance floor.

    I think you just think I am a party girl because of the way I look! I used to be in my younger days though but in the last year I have only gone out like twice.

    1. fierycj profile image77
      fierycjposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I dont think you look like a party girl at all. You just make yourself out to be that way. Always making every thread topic into something about you drinking like crazy. I never figured it out. I've always followed you up on that in the threads, but you never come back to them, so I guess you never saw my comments. Probably proof that you really was high and didnt know what the hell you were saying? But in all, you're an okay lady, kmackey. No kidding.

        Fiery, I don't think this will help the cause. This is drawing away attention from the true topic of discussion. In a sense it is being asked for her to explain herself from other forum posts. This is not the goal of the thread. I want to only know the logic of the abortion.

    I have never had an abortion.  I didn't ever have to make that decision, but I am glad that the choice was available to me, if needed.  I have two friends that had abortions.  I helped both of them pay for it.  They both have subsequently gone on to have other children.  I know that they sometimes think about the aborted fetuses and wonder what kind of people they would have become, but neither time was right for them.  You can only take so much burden, you know.  If people want to cut down on abortions, they shouldn't condemn unwed, young, mothers so much.  They should be willing to volunteer their time and even donate their money to help...but its so much easier to sling words like "baby killer" isn't it?
