At 28 and on my third abortion, I can relate to this video and am more then grateful there are woman out there that support my rights. Not only support but empower me. On my third one I've had so much confusion and at first hand I thought I wanted the baby. New in a relationship, not knowing the man, his true colors came through and I said LIKE HELL I'M GOING TO HAVE A CHILD WITH YOU! I myself was raised with a father that did not want me, and I don't want that nor to be tied to a big man baby for the rest of my life. Your video reminded of whst a warrior I truly am. It is my right and I know for me this is not the right time. I'm not disregarding single mothers, or the ones who choose to keep the baby. My mother was a single mom and is the strongest most loving warrior I know! But again, it was her right and her decision just as this is mine.  Thank you for your honesty and power. Much needed and appreciated!

Abortion & my faith

As a practicing Christian (Anglican/Episcopalian) I have no theological problem with abortion.

For me the case is especially clear-cut early in the pregnancy process, say less than 15 weeks, where spontaneous miscarriage is not uncommon or unexpected simply because the woman's body is unready.

Rather sadly a small number of late term abortions (say 24 weeks+) is inevitable, usually for the most vulnerable amongst us, those in denial because of rape and incest, those who have discovered some dreadful problem with the foetus late in the day etc.

In these circumstances, it seems to be horrendous for anyone other than the woman involved to be making the decision. In these circumstances, I do not believe the decision will be anything other than traumatic for everyone involved. The priority is surely to not make a bad situation worse.

In so far as there is any religious element involved, this decision is one entirely personal to that woman and her God.

Is it so simple?

You say that ...whether you prevent it from happening, or you wash the cells from your uterus, ... there is absolutely no difference. It's splitting hairs ... a couple of cells that cannot exist without you...
I would love to hear more about your views on that. I really don't know. It's a question I've never lokoed at so precisely, but I wonder about just how universal it is (and I don't mean from a political point of view... I mean women's real stories)
Is there really no diference? Does a women who miscarries feel this way? Older women? Younger women? 
Thanks for the eye opener. 

Empowered Abortions.

        While I am pro-abortion ("pro-choice" seeming to be a distracting euphemism) and completely for a revolt against tyrannical nature, I do think there are valid, ethical reasons for being pro-life. I am not a conservative, but I do see value in a conservative argument; a reasoning and respect abandoned by the actual nuts in higher education, like Mireille Miller-Young, who use totalitarian and fascist tactics to silence dissident opinions on college campus's ironically-titled "free-speech zones."  
        In fact, the factual feminist Christina Hoff Sommer's has characterized her pro-abortion stance by reasons of the baby's development and trimesters; where as the baby further develops, her adamant pro-abortion position starts to become, by her own reasoning, ethically disbanded and weak. What does everyone else think?

AAARRRRGGGHHH SO MUCH LOVE

This video is WONDERFUL. I remember my first abortion I was called a 'baby killer' and a murderer' by someone I loved and that verbal abuse tormented me. The final abortion I had before getting my tubes tied I was able to celebrate my choice and felt nothing but love and care for my decision to terminate and my body and its fecundity. 

Oh how I love you two.
