Blue.. then doctors need to take young women seriously when they want permanent solutions. I have a child (and whilst he is fantastic he was not at all planned) that came about ON PROTECTION. I was devastated when I found out I was pregnant! I had been saying since I was little I never wanted kids. Heck I never played with dolls... unless it was to stick them on a horse but then they were really props for the horses... no interest in babies. I didn't have an abortion because that is not right for me. BUT I am one of those people who is firmly pro choice. For science reasons. I don't' think a 'potential' human has the same value as a full human. Any more than I think an egg or sperm has actual moral value. Once it becomes a feotus and can feel pain then I am less ok because its become a person vs a potential person. And really women have more to deal with than men when it comes to issue with children. Until men have to take the same level of responsibility for siring a child I don't think they should have much of a leg to stand on. I do agree in an ideal world they should get a say. But its too easy for them to walk away, a woman can't walk away from what is growing inside her. The fear and pain is very real. And not just pain of childbirth. I lay in bed at nights near the end crying for want of sleep. I ached, I hurt inside and out and there was hubby snoring away blissfully unaware Some women have happy pregnancies, for other its hell. I don't think anyone should be forced into something that can be very much like torture because some politician said they had to.
