something I've been thinking about...

I don't know why this has been bugging me, perhaps its because of my american politics class. After all this is no longer a political issue. SO, here's the thing. I want to live in a world without abortion. Ok, I can hear the gasps and sighs of dismay... but bear with me. I don't mean I want to live in a world where abortion is inaccessible. On the contrary, I think it should continue to be as accessible as it currently is in Canada.

I want to live in a world where contraception is affordable. Where girls can protect themselves without their parents permission. I want to live in a world where sex is always consensual. I want to live in a world with virtually no birth defects. I want to live in a world where every single baby is wanted and recognized for the blessing it is.

Abortion should always be an option. In an ideal world, no one would want or need to choose it.

i completely feel you. i'm very passionate about the topic. i'm pro-life and pro-choice. because i think people should have a choice but we are obliged to create conditions where abortion would never seem like the best choice because life is supported adequately from birth to death. i'd like to live in a world free of poverty , free of injustice, free of rape, where everyone has the full right to exercise their right to think, feel and make decisions and where everyone born is garunteed the fullness of life.

yeah. I'm pro-choice. I've never been in that situation so I don't know what I would do... fingers crossed.
