Actually one of my husband's cousins did it because she couldn't stand to give birth to another of her husband's spawn.
But that was an arranged marriage to a man who emotionally (and later physically) abused her, cheated on her, and gave her the clap, so it's not exactly the sort of situation sneak is talking about!
It IS, on the other hand, exactly the sort of situation that makes requiring spousal consent before a married woman gets an abortion an offense against human rights.
Personally I can't imagine a situation where I'd get an abortion without talking about it with my husband first, but he's always made it clear that if for some reason I did feel it was necessary, he would support me.
In addition, although the fetus can't really indicate, I think it's pretty common knowledge that we all wanted to survive, and so therefore, it could be two votes in favor of sustaining pregnancy and delivery.
That said, abortion is not all bad in emergency situations, etc. It's a tricky dance, this one.
No, but if a woman does not want a child you cannot force her to give birth.
Of course, if you are in a committed relationship you should discuss something as important as a child. That is why it's not a good idea to marry someone who says they don't want children expecting they will change their mind.
It's her decision to keep it,cause she is going to feel the pain. No matter how we males twist the words, it's female who feel the pain. Let her decide no matter how irrational she thinks about fetus. Words play of morality/rights can't replace the pains.
I am sure you are very upset sneako - but maybe - just maybe - she couldn't bear to listen to this holier-than-thou crap any longer? You sure that is not what she said instead of your make believe story?
Which pretty much makes it your fault. Will Jesus punish you for that?
Do you think if you hadn't spent all that time preaching and telling other people what they should be doing she might have made a different choice?
I have to say - I don't blame her one little bit. Good for you for getting this out of your system though. Does it make the homophobia go away? Even just a little bit?
It's a matter of trust. It's a matter of respect. It's a matter of communication. That is what defines a marriage. Not a piece of paper signed by a reverend, or filed in a county clerk's office, or determined by some arrangement as someone else suggested. These are the qualities that define a marriage.
So in any case, such as abortion, or any matter, you have to trust, respect, and communicate with your spouse. It's a matter of there being two people involved. I would have to say that in the scenario you described, I don't see a marriage at all.
I'll give you an example that is along the same lines, though not directly related. I want a kid, and my wife does not. So during sex one night I decide to pull out late to try and impregnate her and then shrug it off as "it must have been an accident." In so doing, I have broken the sanctity of my marriage.
I want a kid and she does not. So that just means we have to trust in each other, respect each other, and continue the line of communication to help us to decide together what is right, what is wanted, and what will ultimately be decided. Not go behind each other's backs and do whatever we want without any regard for the one we supposedly claim to love.
yes you should mikel ... im not stupid to think people dont do this though i strongly disagree with it but if they find they are in a situation that abortion comes up it should be a joint discussion unless there is no joint to it. eve still abortion is never right under any circumstances plain and simple
I dont think its right, a husband and wife should discuss their options with the pregnancy together. However, I would hope that a husband and wife already discussed this before getting married so that there is no question as to what their choice would be.
When my son who was not planned was young, I asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up.He told me he wanted to be an astronaut and be fired into space.If his mother had been five minutes later coming home he would have been.

Abortion and euthanasia, and suicide all require a cessation of life. For abortion it is a requirement for the cessation of life of the fetus. For euthanasia and suicide, it is a requirement by an already living and viable human being for life to come to an end, or to bring their life to an...
The abortion debate is dominated by two extremes. On the one side, "pro life" extremists insist that abortion is murder. On the other side, "pro choice" extremists insist that abortion is a personal choice.I have met quite a few people who think they belong to one or the other....
