"From the darkness, sleeping light." Formerly luminus dormiens. Lux pacis, light of peace.

Quote: "Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us." --Bill Watterson, cartoonist, Calvin and Hobbes


I support women's right to choose. Yes, I do, although I would actively try to encourage them not to abort. It's not about the fetus, killing the fetus. I don't care about the fetus. That may seem cruel to those heavily focused on the idea of the fetus as a human being. Yes, I do feel that killing the fetus is an inhumane method, but I do not feel that it should be completely abolished. To have abortion be abolished would mean endless lines of women crying in desperation to get rid of the babies they do not need or want.

I believe it is more cruel to have women be suicidal. I believe it is more cruel to have women be abandoned by men who only wanted one-night stand without responsibility. I believe it is more inhumane to have an entire family suffer because the father doesn't make enough money to support another child.

What I am concerned about is the welfare of the women. For those potential first-time mothers, the lost baby may be something to consider more thoroughly in favor of keeping it even if having the baby might delay a career. The reason is that if you choose to abort, and have children later, I cannot seriously consider those children to be your first . . . If mothers so choose to tell their children that they had abortions before they gave birth to the children, the idea would belie the children's assumption that they were the first ever to be made in the mothers' wombs, except that they were first-born.
