IT IS MY CHOICE

This week’s topic for ThemeThursday is to write about something controversial. I’ve been thinking about this since last Thursday and wasn’t really sure if I would participate. There are many controversial topics to choose from but I just didn’t “feel” any of them plus I had just done 2 controversial topics like a week before and thought I had caused enough controversy in my blog for one lifetime but as usual I never walk away from a challenge. You can read about those topics here and here.

So as it usually happens to me I get ideas either late at night right before I’m about to fall asleep (which causes me to forget a lot of important info) or when I’m on the train (don’t ask I have no clue). This time it happened as I was walking up the stairs from the train….abortion (*and the room goes silent*). Ok are you still here

Every since I’ve been old enough to think for myself I never understood why it is a controversial subject. My opinion is that it’s my body and my choice what I choose to do with it. Plain and simple. The government, those protesters standing in front of abortion clinics, my family, my boyfriend and going as far as even my husband cannot and should not have a right to tell me what to do with my body.

Why do other people (especially strangers) think they have a right to tell me weather I should have a baby? Are they going to help me raise it? Chances are NO. So who give them the right to dictate how I’m going to live my life. Why is this even a debate??

Now a little bit on a side note. I know some will say that abortion is killing a baby. Well I say no I’m not, it’s not a baby yet. If a woman chooses to have an abortion before 12 weeks of pregnancy it’s only a fetus. It’s not a real baby. It’s tiny…the size of a kidney bean. It hasn’t developed into anything.

I “love" the people that are of opinion that YOU MUST HAVE THE BABY and than so many times these woman know they don’t want to keep the baby so they give it up for adoption. The lucky ones get adopted but what happens to the unlucky ones….or worst yet what about those really poor countries, kids die in those orphanages…so you going to sit there and tell me it’s better for me to have a baby, give it up for adoption, have it maybe die because there are no funds to take care of it rather than have an abortion when its not even a baby yet, its just a fetus….GIVE ME A FUCKING BREAK.

I have many other examples why I think it’s a woman’s choice to have an abortion but this is suppose to be a post not a book so the above is just one example.

Like I said at the beginning…this is a no brainier for me….

  1. Fun fact: 18 years after abortion was legalized, the crime rate experienced a significant decline. Proof that unwanted fetuses grow up to be unwanted adults.

  2. While I am pro-life and would completely disagree with you, I enjoyed reading your post. You definitely give very valid points for your argument. Food for thought.

  3. I am pro choice for some of the same and some different reasons. But just a fact check - an unborn baby is an embryo for 8 weeks and a fetus for the remainder of the pregnancy.

  4. Such a divisive topic - I wish, like you said, that those on both sides would just respect each woman's decision to do what she feels is right.

  5. Excellent post! I'm pro-choice and for me it boils down to my body, my choice. I'm not about to tell anyone else what to do with their body and I'd like the same in return

  6. Politicians will be debating social issues like this for generations as they have before. This really is a woman's issue since we are often the ones who end up with the responsibility of an unwanted pregnancy. Whether you're pro-life or pro-choice, it shouldn't be up to a man or our government to decide either way, imo.
