Surely you don't mean 'assaulted.' A punch in the face is an assault...and I doubt you'd become pregnant from that. The word is 'raped.' If you were raped and found out later you were pregnant from that rape, would you have an abortion - is that the question? If it is, why don't you say so?
I understood the question to be about being sexually assaulted.
Thank you Lisa, that was what I meant. HubPages TOS, remember.
I think the question was pretty obvious, why be obtuse?
I have been and I did have an abortion. It bothered me for a bit, but I got over it. The r_a_p_i_s_t got off Scot free, of course as this happened many years ago and I was too young to fight about it because of all the "blame the victim" mentality that accompanies such trauma.
It really makes women bitter and hateful toward men because they can get away with s_e_x crimes.
Even though I am a Christian, I do not judge you for this. Sorry you had to go through both of those.
Zeez thanks, Leon. But i don't need your judgements. I would rather you vote for representatives that support a woman's right to take care of her own body. And throw men in prison for forcing women to have s e x with them.
I deff would go for the second one. But I look at all issues when voting like war on terrorism, labor, but usually vote Dem anyways
It's a hard question to answer. If that did happen to me today the answer most likely would be yes. First of all I am 50 and there would be risks for the baby having a higher chance of birth defects and also when I was in my middle 30s I miscarried my son at full term. I was told if I got pregnant again I had a high risk of having another miscarriage. That was devastating when I lost my son though I know he is in heaven, but still I don't think I would be able to handle another.
If I was a little younger, like in my late 20s when my daughters were born, I would have kept the baby.

This ship has already sailed for me, since I've had a hysterectomy. I often wondered when I had the requisite parts whether I would, and I think I decided that until I was in the situation, I couldn't possibly know what my choice might be. There are a lot of variables involved in bringing a child into the world, and I'm clear on the fact that I have no family, and no support system. If it takes a village to raise a child, I'm seriously lacking that village, which is why I opted not to have children along the way. Now that I can't, I still think that was the right choice, so perhaps my answer to this question would have been yes.
I am menopausal now, but you can't imagine how many doctors I had to consult to get my tubes tied after I decided to not have more children (i have one). They made me jump through hoops because they said i would change my mind. I was insistent!

It must be difficult to trust someone sexually after a sexual assault, when and how would you disclose this information?

Is it telling a woman not to walk alone at night sexist?I've read today that a university advised their female students not to walk alone at night after 3 sexual assaults. This was considered sexist. Are we living in a society so worried about "political correctness" that we can't advice...

I'm being stalked by a hubber in the forums. Yesterday, he verbally assaulted me on numerous posts...he did not use a personal attack, per say, but assaulted my integrity and personhood in a violent manner. I felt assaulted.Now he follows around the forums, and when his friends make disparaging...

If determined as being so, This one will take some honesty that many are incapable of , in truth however you all know it has happened ,That's the problem with the weaponization of law for political gain.Has the "Me Too" movement gone too far , Is it mostly political ?

I read this was true and I just have to know if it is, please! Please provide links to prove what you say. Surely we are not going to be aborting babies ready to come into the world fully developed and healthy?
