Now, I'm not female, but I wanted to relay my opinion, because I think it's relevant.
There still remains a problem in America about "Woman" and their rights.
Up to recently, Women were not on equal pay basis with Men. Now, Women are to be paid, just like a Man. It's about time!
Secondly, on your topic of Women and their children? A Woman should be able to do whatever she wishes, as long as she is self-reliant, self-responsible and honest with herself.
Abortions should ALWAYS remain with the Woman. NO authority has the right to strip her of rights to do what she wants with her life, even if it is detrimental to her own life.
Choice is a Woman's only defense. The freedom to make decisions about what she is do with her life is for her to make and no one else.
If she chooses to have 10 children.....be responsible about it, make sure each has a structured family life, so they can grow. It is the Woman's choice of how many children to bare, but beware of the hazards at older ages.
Having your tubes tied is a solution? But, should never be forced upon any female, at no time.
I hope I was helpful.
