  •  Antibiotics gave me the most wonderful grandchild (19+ / 0-)

    I never thought I would have. But because we have a very serious (inconsistent with life) gene linked defect on my side of the family abortion needed to be a safe option. I have a pro-life friend who just doesn't get it. But then she has never been faced with carrying a fetus that is only alive by virtue of the fact it is still attached to the mother. A fetus with no brain and likely no harvestable organs to help another child. She also doesn't get the emotional cost of being forced to carry a fetus with such profound defects. As for Ellen and people like her, the famous Roe who now regrets her CHOICE, I don't get them either. Adoption was certainly an option for both of them. Ellen is a coward and hypocrite and that makes me angry. Angry because I personally do believe it is a human life, here she is anti-abortion activist and her own child is less important than appearances. I can't get my head around it, it is breathtaking to me. Her hypocrisy in denying choice to other women seems to be common among them do as I say, I know best, overweening need to control, because well, they have God on their side. Right Wing is always right.
