  •  I was going to tip you for your nuanced (17+ / 0-)

    understanding of the problems with Texas and abortion, but your title is inflammatory and when I got to the end and you lost me, totally.

    It sounds to me like your friend made the right choice for herself and her family, and for a lot of women that leads to peace and mental harmony, not "future mental costs".

    I am an athiest who respects your religion, but that's a very ignorant statement put forth by the right wing religionists.

    I've had an abortion, and I would do it again if I needed to.  I have NO regrets, no lingering doubs, absolutely no shred of "future mental costs."

    I know I'm not alone.  If it's the right choice for you and your family, the only feeling that usually comes afterwards is relief.

    I'm not saying no one ever regrets having an abortion, but this concept of mental anguish over abortion seems to be ginned up by the Christian Right.

      I've updated the diary to reflect what was, in retrospect, an overgeneralization based on personal relationships.

      I've also changed the title. I didn't mean to inflame anything, but apparently I did.

      Mea maxima culpa.
