Being pregnant and your view on abortion - has it changed?
I used to be very pro-choice. But now that I'm pregnant, I've started to feel conflicted about this. I was wondering if anyone else's point of view has shifted since becoming pregnant.
I didn't realize that abortions were allowed so late in pregnancies. The fact that a baby can be aborted even at my stage of pregnancy (20 weeks!) totally horrifies me. My baby can suck her little thumb! And kick! And I know that she has her own little personality already.
I still think it should be legal because I don't relish the idea of women sticking coat hangers up there or getting shady illegal doctors to do it, but I definitely feel a lot more conflicted now than I did before.
I'm not trying to start some crazy debate here. I just want to know if anyone else's opinion on abortion has been affected by their pregnancy.
While BabyandBump tries to remain pro-choice on most subjects, out of respect for majority of our members that are either trying to conceive, or pregnant, we ask that you do not discuss topics on abortion and terminations outside of the 'Ethical Prenatal Losses' forum.
