you have absolutely no right to tell others how to run their life
Ah, but you feel that you have the right to end someone's life because
*you* don't want him/her? Would you like someone else putting such a value
on your life?

Is this the phrase of the week? "Maybe one day you'll be broke, alone and
pregnant - so there!" Three people have said almost the exact same thing.
you all aren't coming up with original ideas, and are copying phrases
from other guestbook entries, or a lot of people hope that I'll
be destitute some day. Well, hopefully I won't ever be in that
situatation, but if you all get your lovely wish, and I am, I guarantee I
won't abort my child because of it.

Are you suggesting that I'd somehow change my mind if put in that
situation? That I'd "wake up" and suddenly, not consider my unborn child a
human being? Instead of just reading guestbook entries and responding, you
might want to try reading some of my articles. A brief reading of a few of
them would clearly indicate that I wouldn't suddenly "see the light" if
put in a difficult situation. My pro-life belief is not based on an
unrealistic view of the world, where I see all pregnancies as easy and
wonderful, full of supportive friends and relatives and baby showers -- it
is based on the idea that we do not have the right to kill the most
helpless among us, simply because they are in our womb.
So, you believe that killing your child is an option. If I give birth, and
the next week, I
lose all my money and support, and am all alone, do I have the right to
kill my child? Why not? After all, I can kill him/her in the womb, or when
he/she is half way out of the womb. Or maybe you agree with Peter Singer,
who argues that infanticide should be legal?

What do you suggest? That we force her to have an abortion? She
isn't mature enough to give birth, but she is mature enough to
have an abortion? She isn't mature enough to make any other medical
decision without the consent of her parents, but magically, she is mature
enough, when she is already probably distraught over the pregnancy, to
make the difficult decision to have abortion, without even notifying her
parents. (In most U.S. states, parental notification is not required. I do
not know what the laws are in Australia) Obviously, a pregnancy, whether it is carried through or terminated, is going to be a
very difficult experience for a 12 year old.
always a distressing experience for all involved.
Adoption is always distressing? Have you personally talked to adopted
children and birth mothers about this, you are you just guessing? Are you
suggesting that abortion is not
distressing for some women? In fact, people keep telling me what a difficult, painful
decision it is. Do you disagree with that? Or do you think abortion is
Leave those who live in the real world alone!
So, my expressing my belief that abortion is anti-woman and a human
rights violation means that I don't live in the real world? Or do you
suggest that I just ignore such situations, because you don't agree with me?
