I think banning abortion is one of the most infuriating things I’ve ever seen. Every girl has been manipulated by a dumb ass horny guy at least once in her life. I’ve been manipulated by guys to have sex when I did not want to, and I’ve also been manipulated by guys to not wear a condom. In fact I’ve even been manipulated by a guy who knew I was not on birth control, to not wear a condom when I had one available, and then came inside me and didn’t tell me about it when I asked him to his face he said he “swore on his family” that he did not cum inside me. So I wound up pregnant and then he told me abortion was the only option and that abortion was no different than the morning after pill. You can say that ultimately all of these times I was “manipulated” was my fault, and it was absolutely. But we are human, we have holes, and voids, we have childhood pain, we have insecurities, we want to trust people, we want to see the best in people, we crave attention, were emotionally deprived, were human. We all make mistakes, we make decisions in the heat of the moment, we want people to like us, we trust people who should not be trusted, especially narcissists and sociopaths. These personality types are designed to make us trust them instantly. Instant rapport. Incidentally that is who this guy who impregnated me was. Women should not bear the burden of these decisions. If there is a law that a pregnancy is unwanted and has taken place, then there should be checks and balances to hold men accountable for these actions. I’m disgusted and heated over this concept. Un fucking believable. I’m officially a liberal. If you want to tell me I should have done this, I should have done that, lets diagnose your life and I’ll tell you all of the areas where you are the weakest and where you need to improve your life and all of the fucking stupid things you are doing because none of us are perfect.
No one WANTS to have an abortion. No one “supports” abortion. It’s a horrible situation. But the reality is that mistakes happen and sometimes its the best option. If America offered a grant, say $2500 a month to a single woman for every child she had out of wedlock, for any unwanted/unexpected pregnancy, then I would say okay fine I’d love to keep my baby. Because I wanted to keep the baby. I just couldn’t afford it. I have no help, my family would not support me, I was not making enough money, and now I have to live with this decision for the rest of my life. I’ve had to find ways to cope and reconcile it. That psychological pain is enough punishment I’m all set.
