    This is so well said!  As a woman I have been all over the reproductive spectrum.  I have been young and alone and pregnant and my father wasn't ever much financial support and my mother passed away when I was little.  I have been older with means and desiring children and finding out that pregnancy for me isn't a given and isn't easy.  I have two kids.....a 16 year old daughter and a 5 year old son who was born with a genetic mutation that "matters".  Every conception involves not just passing on genes but a few novel genes zapped into existence as well, some of which a woman's body says, "Nah, out with ya!"  My son lacked the coding for some small muscle groups that should have developed after 19 wks I believe. I wouldn't have done anything any different either.  If I would have known my son was going to have problems I would not have aborted him, it wasn't even an option for me.  I don't feel bad about my abortion.  I don't feel bad about miscarriages.  It's life!  It is strange and forever unique every time around the mulberry bush!
