Good-evening guys , with all the talk about safe sex and protection these days , while std's are not the only worries, there is the issue of '' unwanted pregnancies''. Yes it can be agreed that mistakes do happen, but is it possible for a pregnancy to be a mistake? In instances of rape and drunken stupor(s) , should an abortion be the means by which we erase that mistake? There are abortions and there are ''abortions'' , sometimes females feel compelled to abort , this is where a person sits down and finds the most ''logical'' reasons why it is better to terminate a pregnancy than to face '' judgement '' or to remove the stumbling block that may some how slow down their life. Others as a means of contraception, the decison takes little or no thinking, its something that has to be done. Funny enough research states that over 90% of us believe there is a God, in harboring this belief , just how many abortions should we have? How many genuine mistakes can we make that would justify an abortion?
I considered this as a topic last week when I spoke to an older lady (Late 50ties) who said she had three abortions which she regretted. This lady has 5 living children. Yet regrets that she aborted three, when asked why she simply stated that '' with 8 children I wouldnt have had the time to get into the trouble I got into''. Taking the time to think on her words I decided to ask a few people about their decision to abort.
Another lady around the same age as the one above said she had 2 and did in deed rgret the decision later on in life. She said at the time she had two younger children and felt overwhelmed and scared about having another baby so soon after giving birth. While her life drastically changed from what it was when she was younger, the decision to abort makes her think now on how her life would have been with those two other children. This lady broke up with her then husband but feels the children he got after hers and the fact that he is a wonderful father to all, somehow makes her think her life would have been better off staying married to him than raising the children almost as a single parent.
The third was a woman around 35 years old, who wants no more children but has an abortion everytime as soon as she get pregnant. This woman has one child aged 8 and has been having abortions since she was 17 years old. When I asked how she felt about having abortions she says that being pregnant feels awful and she wouldnt be able to stand being pregnant again. Then I asked how she thought God would feel about her having so many abortions and really not stopping to think about the redemption from the sin of commtting an abortion, although she believed in God. She went further on to say she cried at everyone which moved me to ask just exactly how many '' mistake'' can one have. Is there anyone out there who regrets having one done and why? On the other hand is there anyone who truly feels it was the right decision to make?
Your views. Here on JMG night talk!!
