I'll gladly take your title of Super Woman though, lol....but give it to Cara and Judith too ;)
Abso-fricken-lutely! Cara and Judith have impressed me a number of times.
Belle, who speaks for the child you are contemplating giving birth to? In this thread it's been me.
I have known too many of them to sugar-coat this decision for you.
Why are you being so selfish? If you have this child, the child will be the one who bears the majority of the burden of your decision over the next 18 years not you.
An aborted fetus never suffers the hard life of being an unwanted child, but a child in the adoption system does.
How many children are currently awaiting adoption in the system at the present time? If you don't know the answer, don't you think you should before having another child?
You already have a child, why not focus on giving that child the best chance at life you can. Get an abortion and raise the one child you have as best as you can, the world already has enough unwanted children.
Best of luck,
Mean Ol' Gregg the Asshole. :)
"I always have felt that I would never under any circumstances abort a baby."
You know, if you've had unprotected sex and did not get pregnant, but could have because of your ovulation cycle, you probably self-aborted miscarried.
Do you know that as many as 75% of all conceptions self-abort miscarry?
If this could have happened to you, have you had severe emotional problems as a result? YOU HAVEN'T? Well, then, why not? Those babies were never baptized, so they are HELLBOUND, since they still carry their Original Sin, and the Catholic Church has said that Limbo doesn't exist anymore, so their souls don't go there. Since the Bible doesn't explicitly say that unborn and unbaptized babies get a special dispensation for not believing and accepting Holy Jeebus as their Savior and Lifestyle Consultant, you can't pull the "they get a special investigation at the Pearly Gates" out of your butt and say they magically get a free get-out-of-hell card.
I'm not trying to belittle the obvious moral, physical and emotional turmoil that a rape victim has in facing what to do, but really, since self-aborts miscarriages happen SO frequently without women becoming hysterical about it, they should be able to make the choice to actually abort a rapist's impregnation without any guilt.
I'm not sure what your situation is, but I hope you're not feeling like you're forced into something because an imaginary creature supposedly said not to do it, unless the imaginary creature is the Tooth Fairy telling you to not forget to floss.
"...the Catholic Church has said that Limbo doesn't exist anymore..."
Being one of the Billion or so born into the Catholic Church Family of Fools, when they did that one I was flabbergasted.
So the Catholic Sky-Daddy decides to go back on a promise he made to all those millions of unbaptized babies he has been keeping in that special nursery in heaven and says;
"Fuck all you little free-loading sinners it's off the Hell with you!"
That Sky-Dude is a bigger asshole then me.
"@Gregg: who's calling you an asshole??"
I often introduce myself as an asshole when I meet new people, so they don't have a reason to get their panties in a bunch when my worldview doesn't agree with their worldview.
"I could USE that financial help. Right now I am BROKE."
New slogan for Adoption Centers:
Make Babies for Fun and Profit
"I would choose a couple who (usually can't have kids but desperately want one) are already eligible to adopt"
Ever wonder why these wonderful people haven't adopted a special needs baby already?
I'm not against the fine human beings who do adopt unwanted children especially special needs children, I am very much against making babies for the specific purpose of putting them up for adoption.
"And the adoptive parents would be..."
So at present these wonderful wealthy loving new parents are just a thought experience and not really flesh and blood human beings who have committed to raising your unborn fetish. What if those perfect parents don't exist? Guess where this purposed baby goes if they don't magically appear? The same place already filled with other unwanted babies "the system"...hospital>adoption center/orphanage>foster care>juvenile criminal housing>the big house>death by shank.
IIRC (correct me if I'm wrong) you were adopted by religious parents who will disown you if they find out you are carrying a child fathered by a black man, weren't they also deemed "eligible" the be adoptive parents? I would never disown a child of mine even if he turned out to be Adolf Hitler (I'd put him down but I wouldn't disown him).
"I'm sure you'll not take any offense to me saying, "Quit pretending like you actually care and are advocating for my baby you asshole.""
None taken and I don't care about your fetus nor what choices you make in life, you asked for opinions these have been mine.
You have the option to abort the fetus you don't want, do it before that option goes away.
