Sorry for your loss TF
I'm very pro choice all the way, even when it makes me queasy,
I believe I don't have to be happy with someone's decision, but they should have the right to decide what's best for them.
so I think it's great that there are more choices for women, I like that there are tight regulations to lower misuse.
But the deaths associated with it freak me out big time!
I agree with pp. There is inadequate counsellIng/support for women considering abortion now. The take a pill approach will just make it worse.
Ironically only a week before I found out I was pg I was thinking there couldn't be any possible reason i would abort. many in the ectopic circles refuse to call it that as it can be a life or death decision for the mother, but really, it is a termination. It is ending the life of the baby/cells/embryo thru an injection.
I like to hope I continue to learn and grow, and this experience has really opened my eyes that you never really know people's reasons, nor that you should judge them...
I never thought I would have one either hubby and I both agreed it was something we could never do (especially after we lost an early pregnancy).
I am one that had a termination for my own selfish reasons. I was 17, contraception didn't work, I had no family to lean on or talk to, I knew I couldn't give my baby the life I think it would deserve and I couldn't bare the thought of looking at every child for the rest of my life wondering if it was my baby, so I travelled hrs to a hospital to have my termination, sat in a room with heaps of women of all different ages. It was such an emotional time, and yes I wish I could have stayed in my home town and had the pill.
If anyone feels the need to tell me I'm a bad person or a murderer for what I did then go ahead, ive heard it all before.
I feel for anyone that had to make such a tough decision, and yes I'm glad there's another option out there now
