So, I normally don't like to get all political or in debate about things on my blog. However, today I drove past some protesters, and I just can't stop thinking about them!
On my way to the dreaded library, (UGH!) I pass by an abortion clinic. I've passed by this place a couple of times, and always noticed people outside, but never really paid much attention.
I guess I'm just too glued to my BlackBerry and jammin' out to my tunes to notice my surroundings.
Yes, I text AND Facebook while driving. Sue me! I get enough flack about this from the BF!
Today, I actually noticed that they were holding signs, and they offered numbers for pregnant women who needed assistance, and things of that sort. But there were also signs that made these women feel bad, I'm sure. Such as "Women who abort usually regret".
Which may be true, but let the poor woman who's obviously in a dire situation realize this on her own.
This is a topic I've always been on the fence on.
I, myself, don't think I could EVER abort a child that I created. However, I know many people who have done this, two of the women being two of the closest to me, and I do not judge anyone who makes this decision.
I also am not a fan of abortion when it's just because, "oops the condom broke" or "omg I'm too young and can't afford a baby". My belief in that situation is, if you're grown enough to lay down and spread your legs, then you're grown enough to raise the outcome!
We are all entitled to our own opinions, right?
I know there are circumstances in which a woman was drugged and/or raped, those are more understandable. Either way, I do not judge. I just have my own belief.
I do however, give MAD props to the protesters. Some people hate them, honk at them, yell at them, but I have respect for people who have such a strong belief in something, (anything, not just abortion) that they will let it be known no matter the consequences.
Whew, now that I've gotten that off my chest, I can enjoy the rest of my half day off from work! ;)
P.S. I realize there are plenty of people who are going to disagree with me, and that's fine. It's expected, but this is my blog, and if you want to bash me, well don't do it here. I'm open to hearing your opinion, but don't hate me for mine.
