I think I was a bit unclear. Of course I don't think people don't use birth control because they can get abortions. I more meant that they rely too heavily on their birth control working, and of course there's always a small chance it could fail.
I definitely understand nearly every reason for people being pro choice. I know you said not to say it's my opinion because it's a threat to human rights. but I also guess I'm just too attached and emotional when it comes to life, that I feel like it's also threatening the rights of the unborn baby, especially if the child or mother's life isn't in danger and the baby was conceived by consent. and yes, i know it's the woman's body and she should be able to do what she wants with it, but I also feel really really really bad for the fathers of the babies that want to keep it.
I know all my opinions are based off feelings, and that's why I don't really try to go out and advocate. I don't mind telling people how I feel, but I will probably never, ever go to an anti-abortion rally of any sort, and I definitely won't do crazy shit like bomb abortion clinics, which I agree is totally insane and those people need to learn there's other ways to advocate your feelings. I also really hate how a lot of people just use God as an excuse. My feelings aren't based off of God and the fact that I'm going to go to hell if I don't go destroy all abortion clinics or something.
I also want you to know that even though I may disagree with some things you say, you're one of the few people I still have much respect for, because you validate your reasons and show how they make sense and actually try to educate people about your side, unlike most people my age who either just yell at everyone who disagrees (or deletes them off facebook or something stupid like that) and/or form their opinions based on what gets them the most acceptance with the most people and can't give any reasons why they feel that way.
Well, actually, I don't disagree with you. I think your points are valid. but my feelings remain the same, and I get really upset about people having abortions because they just don't want the baby. I was actually thinking about today, how I really want kids, but I don't know if I want to deal with the whole pregnancy thing. I mean, if I get pregnant, I'll go through with it, but I was also thinking how I wouldn't mind adopting a child, especially if someone was planning on having an abortion and I could talk them out of it by letting them know their child will have a safe home.
I guess, maybe how I really feel, isn't necessarily that abortions should be illegal, but that things should be done to reduce the number of abortions significantly. It's a complicated subject for me. I don't want people to think I don't give a shit about women, because I do, but I also care about the baby, too.
