Leftist commentary from a mouthy bitch
If you have ever said, in response to the abortion debate, “She could just give up the baby,” READ THIS NOW: http://shakespearessister.blogspot.com/2009/03/breaking-silence-on-living-pro-lifers.html#disqus_thread
This is the story of a birth mother. No she doesn’t speak for all birth mothers, but judging by the comments by other birth mothers in the comments, she speaks for an awful lot of them.
I long maintained that if I got pregnant, I would abort. I meant it. I never understood how anyone thought I, who sobbed uncontrollably when giving away kittens I’d bottle-raised, could possibly carry a life inside me for nine months and then just give it away. I was also smart enough to know that I am unsuited to parenthood. I can barely deal with disciplining my cats, kids…? No.
If you have ever believed that pro-life bullshit about how damaging abortion is to a woman, without ever thinking about how terrible adoption might be for the birth mother, READ IT NOW.
I’m just going to shut up now, I can’t really do it justice. Just, go read it.
