And just because something is legal doesn't mean it's right. And doesnt mean 100% of society agrees with it. Laws change all the time and this wouldn't happen if they were always perfect.
When I first look at the situation of a pregnant women smoking i do understand that there may be stress factors involved in her decision to smoke. Then the next level of thinking takes over: the factual side where it doesn't matter what a persons reasons are what they are doing is damaging another human being and there is NO excuse (IMO) that justifies it. I look down on pregnant women Who smoke without being able to have a real good crack at giving up. I think its selfish, disgusting and weak. That's just the way I feel.
I wonder if smoking when pregnant will become illegal in the same way that smoking in cars with kids is???
I only posted that so you can see there are reasons people get them and you really should think before you post as some woman on this forum might be going through a really hard time due to abortion they have had or need to get.
It doesn't change the fact that the discussion really is moot and has gone around in that many circles that it's heading towards an abortion debate. I also didn't say anything about it being against bub hub rules?? No need to put words in my mouth.
Liberal squad, then yeah, Im extreme.
I fully understand there are issues women suffer that lead to decisions when they smoke etc I just don't ever agree that it's the only decision or the right decision.
As for being narrow minded and lacking empathy those buzz words can be applied to either side of the discussion.
- Do I say you're lacking empathy for babies because you're soft towards women that smoke when preggers or do other similar things? Or call you narrowminded because you put the women's rights first? No I haven't .. Yet.
