I read some click bait story about a professional woman having a night out with female friends and the topic turned to whether an unplanned pregnancy would lead one to have an abortion. Her blog goes that all the other ladies said no and she figured some were lying because of a perceived stigma. She admitted that she would and the looks she claimed she received told the true story.
The blogger was a 30 something professional with a self-proclaimed reasonable level of success. She was in a committed relationship but both were not ready for children and liked their freedom etc. Despite acknowledging that many people claim they aren't ready but then cope if the time comes, she was adamant she wasn't ready.
Whilst I believe there are many situations where the choice is understandable, I saw nothing in her story that could argue it would be anything other than selfish and immoral. To me, at that age, if you're educated and financially stable, to not take adequate precautions (on multiple levels if required) is beginning to show a genuine contempt for life. Not sure I can fully reconcile my position (on her) versus say naÃ¯ve teenagers but that was what I took away from reading her story.
Wondering whether others that consider themselves pro choice see any difference between this story versus teenage pregnancies or worse (such as rape)? Interested in reading alternative views.
