I've said it before and I'll say it again. I would rather a woman have 20 abortions (which are not something that women take lightly as it is a toll on your body) for whatever reason, up to 25 weeks, than bring one unwanted child into this world. The world is already overpopulated with unwanted children.
There seems to be an idea floating around that women will decide one morning to either have a muffin or an abortion. Repealing the 8th won't take away the already very stringent rules surrounding time allowed between contraception and termination or certification needed from a doctor. It will just mean that a woman will no have to travel to England paying thousands of euros in the process, suffering all the isolation and disrespect incurred to her by our country but instead can attend a prescribed facility in our country and will be able to go home to her loved ones.
FFS, it boggles my mind that it is even up for discussion that rape and incest victims have to continue to feel the violation of those acts for nine months to life because of the morals of others, when she could have the pregnancy terminated at 6 weeks allowing her time to get counselling and get on with her life. We think we're a first world country but we're ok with this?
As the owner of a womb, if I had to suffer a rape (again) and had the shit luck to get pregnant out of it, I would have an abortion as soon as possible, well as soon as I could gather the funds together to go to England, pay for accommodation, food and the operation. If anyone tried to tell me that was the wrong decision because of their morals I don't think I could be held accountable for my actions.
Well,imagine that,a woman who won't bow down to the ignorant selfishness of others,who won't be a breeder for those who want to control her ovaries with rosaries. People who are anti choice have no interest in facing facts, in facing what those unfortunates who need what nature often provides,abortion. It displays a lack of compassion and empathy and a closed mind,not good enough,especially those who care only for the unborn,and not one iota for those who are born into poverty and degredation.
