    • I feel sorry for you, Kariangely

    • I am so sorry Kairangely. My parents has also gone through a tough time. My dad ended up being drunk and then he ended up abusing my mother so my mom kicked him outta the house. Now it’s just me, my brother, mom and my step dad. And now a new born.

    • Wow sorry to hear about this…

    • Dear Kairangely,
      I think it is very brave of you to share this story with everyone because its very personal but you have proved that we can overcome any obstacle.

    • I like the brevity of this letter, it really gives it a strong message. D you have any other reasons for being pro-life? My personal opinions tend to coincide with yours, but also I am not a woman so I will never be able to experience this. I want to become more educated on the pro-life/pro-choice debate.

      • I do have other pro-life opinions and I will try and post more of them if it is something you are interested in them. I appreciate your comment. Thank you very much for taking the time to comment on my post.

    • I really like how you get straight to the point with this letter. It’s direct and clear, and I think that is the best way to go when writing a letter like this. I agree with your premise in this letter. I don’t believe that abortion is right in every circumstance, but I do think that it is the woman’s choice. Like Will, I am not a woman, so I will never be able to go through this, but for those who do have to experience this, it is a very hard decision to make. While I may not agree with the choice 100% of the time, it is a woman’s decision, not mine.

    • Abortion is a very important topic and while I respect your opinion, I disagree. I think it is important that we look at the circumstances that would lead a woman to choose to have an abortion. Many pregnancies are terminated because of an inability to fully support that child. The average cost to raise a child to the age of 18 is about $304,480. Should we force a woman to put that financial burden on herself and force that child to live a life of poverty? No, abortion isn’t the most desirable thing in the world but until we fix the underlying cause of abortion, e.g. poverty and poor sexual education, we cannot force these women to either carry the child to term or perform an unsafe “back room” abortion which would increase if abortions at licensed, safe institutions were banned.

      • I really do appreciate you taking the time to comment on my post. Next time I write something like this I will try harder to really see both sides of the argument. Once again thank you very much for commenting.
