I have to add that I really don't get the "Crucify Chrissie" attitude. I don't really know anything about who she is apart from what her own actions show. I felt sorry for her when everyone started up that size related bash on her kids but I know I don't like people who actively try to hide things from the people closest to them so perhaps that's why I'm not particularly sympathetic towards her heh.
What is the pro-Chrissie movement hoping to accomplish? What is the smoking while preggers is disgusting movement hoping to accomplish?
A big fat nothing! Both sides are just voicing their opinions because this is a platform to voice opinions. Neither side is going to save the world

I find it so frustrating for people to say "its nothing to stop Its only nine months" it might be nothing for some but it is huge, hard, stressful, embarrassing, and so many other things for some people.
To those who did it, my hat goes of too you. Please, to the people who say that its "Nothing to give things up for your unborn child" it doesnt help and it makes the people who are struggling so hard feel even worse. What they (i needed) is encouragement and not to be reminded.about how horrible they are treating their unborn child. I can guarantee you, they do not need any further guilt.
Oh dear. Here we go *big breath*.
I don't agree with the "my body my choice" argument.
I think it's a selfish mantra as well as an inaccurate one.
From the moment you conceive your body is shared.
When a life grows inside you means that it's also someone else's body too.
I notice that this society often shuns this notion.
Because, of course, it's all about me, me and me.
But by virtue of the way they exist, an unborn baby does not have an outlet by which to express their choices so those choices are left for you to make on their behalf.
(In some areas of our society they are not considered human until born.
And we all know that that's not true, don't we?) So.
If you don't understand or like that concept or don't want it then don't have babies.
I say this as a mother and a former smoker, not as a Judge.

I guess you need to read my posts in sequence, people quoting me and me answering them, then I'll make sense. Picking out a sentence makes no sense to the whole post and who it refers to.
