The video above is not my own, however, it conveys many of the points I make in the following post.
7...14...21...28, 29, 30, 31... 32. Thirty-two days since my last cycle. I was late.
I still had to wait another seven days before I could even be seen. In the meantime, I tormented myself by going online and seeing what developments would occur in my pregnancy and the cons of having an abortion. I found Christian propaganda—something about how abortions cause breast cancer.
Let me start off by saying that I AM NOT A MOTHER. I am not trying to discredit women who want to be stay-at-home moms. I tip my hat to the women who wake up before the sun rises because their infant needs to be fed. To the mothers who tuck their toddlers in at night and read them bedtime stories. To the women who inadvertently speak to adults like one of their children, because they rarely interact with grown ups anymore since they are 24/7 Bubble Guppy watching, Bob the Builder toy playing, Disney sing-along karaokers. This message is NOT for you, though you need to know how important and worthwhile you are.
