    "pro choice" is actually synonymous with "it's a woman's choice." The two concepts are identical.

    There can be mental health implications to any major life decision. It's not talked about very much, but deciding to give birth to a child and raise it, or give it up for adoption, can also engender complicated and troublesome emotions. However, in the case of abortion, there's not another person's mental health issues to worry about. A child born into the situation you describe would not have had a really good chance at an emotionally healthy and loving home life....and adoption might not have provided those things, either. There are some good people who adopt, but there are also some people who shouldn't even be keeping pets, unfortunately. The adoption process doesn't always weed out those sorts.
