Quoting Jheri Ames:" You were never truly "pro life" if you are considering abortion. It just means that you judged others ... [snip!] ... not go through with the pregnancy. If you have the procedure there is always post abortion support to consider. Best of luck."
actually its something ive been working through ever since a friend of mine had an abortion six years ago.
and as far as judging? no.
i felt bad for anyone that would be obligated to choose. my heart broke for her.
and yes, i let my emotions get in the way, and it led to miscommunication and eventually the end of our friendship. that was a huge loss for me.
When i first made this decision, there was no emotion involved. i didn't care because its not sad either way. because i have built my logic over the past few years and it is getting better at closing out my emotions. at first when i made the decision i though about my old friend, and thought...she was right. and im sorry. i shouldn't have let my emotions be a burden to her. (clarification, she had an abortion a year after i lost a child due to my own unhealthy choices, and i hated to see her go through what i went through, but i was there for her. later, like a year later...someone was badgering me about how pro choice they are and it made me nauseous. i could not process my emotions. i made a fb post trying to clear my head and my friend took it the wrong way, thought i was judging her....idk.)
so now, i was doing so well walking away from the emotions of it all, but they are creeping up on me.
thanks for your words, working through it again is helping me. but i just wanted to clarify that it isnt me changing my mind now that im backed into a corner, its something ive been trying to work through for years.
i actually think that this experience is helping me, so that maybe i can be a good friend again someday to someone in need. i used to be too scared to even talk about abortion.
idk if any of this makes sense, but i like to think of it as me growing.
sometimes i loose that though and i get scared.
