    So you are pro-choice then?

    Yes. I wish that women would not have abortions for the most part and I discourage them and argue pro-life generally, but yes, I think that abortion should be legal.

    Then we are in agreement! I feel the same way.

    A couple of years after we had our first daughter and a friend had an abortion. Before that I didn't think about it and was, if asked as I never was, firmly pro-choice and didn't care if an abortion occured or not. I care now, though it is and should be the woman's right. I would just try to discourage them if possible with friendly discussion if i had the chance again.

    I agree, I wouldnt try to discourage them though but I would give them a shoulder and ear to lean on and talk to. I would also tell them to make sure they are sure (no matter their decision) IF they ask or I am a close enough friend.

    I have also been pro-choice my whole live, before and after my daughter just cant honestly imagine being any other way. Nothing gets me there, no logic makes me want to force women to give birth.

    I don't mean discourage as in trying to actively talk them out of it, just that I would listen and very very subtly discuss how great my kids are, or something...

    Sorry didnt really mean to imply that if it seemed that way, I was just trying to be clear on how I felt more than anything.

    My daughter is also GREAT, I love my little mini-me

    Re: Child Support Payments

    I don't believe any of us are "pro-abortion". We're just real, and reality isn't always pretty. Having said that, I think abortion is an UGLY necessity. I hate re-reading it - and I hope I don't get a truck load of crap thrown at me for it - but its true. We cant provide for people as it is, and there are already 500 thousand kids stuck in foster care - some being tossed from one place to the next never finding the love and security they NEED. And all the GOP wants to do is make things harder for people - just imagine how worse things would be if Roe v Wade were ever overturned. No Birth Control funding, no federal funding for state Child Protective Service agencies (good bye foster care, hello streets), no cash, food, shelter or medical assistance ... This country would be an awful sight ... poverty & illness everywhere.

    This is the kind of dimensional thinking the GOP is lacking. You cant just scream and holler "pro-life" and think that's all there is to it. There has to be some kind of plan as to how you're going to help the very life that you demanded be saved.
    Silly poor people
