This is a (stupid) pro-life argument I see sometimes. "How would you feel if your mom had aborted you??" Well, first of all, I wouldnt feel anything, because I wouldn't exist. Secondly, if my mom hadn't had an abortion, I wouldn't exist.
My mom grew up in a working class family. She and my dad started dating in high school. She was smart, she got on the pill. But she was ill informed. She didn't know you had to be on it for a full cycle before it became effective. She got pregnant at 17. She was too embarrassed and ashamed to tell her parents, so she and my dad paid for an abortion themselves.
33 years later. They're still married. They both have masters degrees. They live a comfortable life in an upper middle class suburb. They waited until 30 to have kids. They have 3 successful children. They were fantastic parents.
If they hadn't gotten an abortion, none of that would have happened. One or both of them would have had to drop out of high school. They wouldn't have been able to afford college, let alone grad school. They would have made a million more mistakes as teen parents.
Given the choice between those two lives, who would choose the life of an unwanted teen pregnancy? My heart breaks for those who had so much potential and could have had a better life if they had had the choice.
Abortion can saves lives, in more ways than one.
EDIT: I'm surprised and filled with emotion by how my mothers story has resonated with so many of you. I'm glad some of you feel validation from it and it's amazing to know how many people have a similar story.
Also, thanks so much for the awards, but consider donating to planned parenthood instead :)
