    Re: Woman twitters her abortion

    This isn't the act of someone just trying to "demystify" abortion. In the news story she says

    Im doing this so other women know, Hey, its not nearly as terrifying as I had myself worked up thinking it was. Its just not that bad, Jackson said on her YouTube video.
    But how would she know that before she had the procedure? That doesn't make any sense. If she had really worked herself up into thinking that it would really be that bad, then how could she say that she was just doing it to "demystify" it? She started twittering the experience before she actually went through with it. So if the abortion had been bad, would she have still put it up, and told the "audience" that it really was that bad, and recommend that they not go through with it?

    I have to agree with others that said she's an attention seeker.

    Okay so what do people think of this? Support it? Think she's nuts?

    When I saw the headline, I was appalled. I thought, "People are twittering abortions?" One of the reasons she said she did it was to demystify the process. You know, that reason, I understand, and I kind of support what she did. I could see that being something that would help a woman decide whether she could take that pill.
    I think she's kind of an asshole; alternately full of tough, deliberately incendiary talk and lame excuses. I'm all for the hyperbole; I think it's hypocritical and just gross when combined with self-justification, stupid whining and excuses.

    Another woman twittered her abortion in much more straightforward terms shortly after Jackson, and she stated, "I don't have a special needs child, or financial problems, or any reason for doing this except that I don't want to be pregnant".

    People who whine about the reasons they're aborting make it seem like they need an excuse... and they don't.

    IMO, you need a reason to bring a child into this world, and if you don't have a good one, don't do it.

    Yeeeep, abortion is a proud day in every woman's life. Let's show it off on the Web, what the hell right?

    I think abortionist are scum and it makes her a bigger piece of **** having a video of doctors killing a baby online. That said I do not see how any abortion can sit there and say they are appalled, to you people that woman having her abortion video taped and posted on twitter should be seen as no different than a video of someone getting a toe,fingernail or some other expendable part of the body(as abortionist try to claim an unborn child is) removed or perhaps some other surgery.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Okay, granted. She didn't know how things would turn out had she continued with the pregnancy. Thus, she neither gave herself or the unborn child a chance. I get that. And here again, I'll say as I have in other threads on this topic that using abortion as a means of birth control is wrong. But I don't see where she did that directly, i.e., you get pregnant without using any form of birth control and then have an abortion, as opposed to using birth control, getting pregnant by accident and then having an abortion. Either way, you've aborted a life, but in the former case the woman took no precautionary measures at all to prevent from getting pregnant, whereas in the latter instance she atleast took appropriate step in an attempt not to get pregnant.

    For some, there is no distinction between "attempting" to do the right thing and doing the right thing under any and all circumstances. Hate to say it, but the only person to ever walk the face of this Earth and live a sinless life was Jesus Christ. I dare say none of us can live up to that reputation. We make mistakes. I will atleast give the woman due credit; she atleast tried to do the right thing based on her own moral standards. Nonetheless, I agree with you in that before knowing what the condition of her unborn child's health, she got rid of it. Now, she will never know if that child would have grown up normal or had health issues. But that's why God gave us all free will...to make our own decisions. We just have to know there are consequences to our every action and be willing to live with them.

    Aps, my comment about JFK was humor. I was being sarcastic. I think people can agree to disagree.

    Agreed! When asked if he got pregnant again if she would have another abortion her response was, "yes." I'm sorry but that is about as irresponsible as you can get. Using an abortion for birth control when she could just have her tubes tied or her boyfriend could have a vasectomy. Come on.

    The woman is a f'ing idiot and broadcasting that to the world to boot.

    Where did the special needs child thing come from? I watched the entire interview on CNN and I never saw that? FOX? All I heard was she nearly died from her last pregnancy and her doctor said she should not get pregnant again.

    It's in the original article. And, if the above is true, not having her tubes tied is incredibly irresponsible, for her own health.
