I’m shocked by the amount of women who are against abortion and the 24 week limit in our country. Some things said to me really angered me, but I decided to blog about abortions as many who are against it have never been in that situation.
First of all its not an “easy way out” and any woman who comes out after having an abortion without feeling guilty or upset is not a real human being. You know it was a foetus and you know that can be a living being like you or I, so naturally it isn’t easy to choose this option and to come to terms with it may take years. Also doctors will ask you over and over if this is right as they can’t do it if they believe you are being forced to having one or having second thoughts. It’s painful every time they ask and you will probably feel bad every single time you nod for the go ahead, it’s tough but you have good reasons and you have spoken to them about it a million times.
Another point is you can’t just keep going in for abortions. You can have one, maybe two, but if you come in often enough they will start questioning you further. For me I was refused the pill and told after my abortion to get the pill (hospital gave me a prescription) or they may not consider me for an abortion next time. I came off the pill with doctors agreeing as it was affecting me badly after 5 years on it, but we used other contraception. I got pregnant but didn’t want to have an abortion and being in a stable relationship I had no concerns for the future either.
A lot of women don’t know they are pregnant early on, and there’s always a queue to get an abortion. I was 12 weeks when I found out but was 16 weeks when I was in hospital. Does that mean if I found out I was 12 weeks in and wanted an abortion would I be told to sod off even though I had bleeds and only just found out I’m pregnant and further in the pregnancy than I thought?
Women fought for our rights and now it seems we are taking steps back. If anything this change will open us to back street abortions where women are having to pay money to dodgy people to do an illegal thing.
I’m understanding to people who dislike abortions, but its a choice that we should be allowed, specially for those who are forced upon or assaulted.
Next time I will blog about my experience as many seem to think its an in and out job and some even think its an operation done quickly. Time to explain the real deal of Abortions on the NHS.
Comments are welcome, I enjoy a discussion and debate, but please if you are going to attack me or troll me then don’t bother as it’s not worth trying to do that to me as I’ve heard it all before.
