No. Actually it has strengthened my pro-choice stance by further proving to myself that no one person could make such a huge decision of whether or not to have a child for any other person.

Having a child only affirmed my beliefs in being prolife

It has only made me more pro-life, if that is even possible.

It made me more firmly pro-choice.

Having a child is such a HUGE responsibility. We absolutely must do whatever is in the best interests of our child. If that means not bringing them into an unsafe or unloving situation then, as sad as it is, we have the responsibility to make that decision.

I became a mother as soon as I got my BFP. My responsibilities to my child began THEN. There was no way I could bring him into the world and hand him over to someone else with nothing more than a hope and a prayer that he would be alright. I just thank God that I was able to parent him myself. He is the greatest gift.

Pregnancy only made me more sure that abortion is wrong and that I am VERY pro-life.

Becoming pregnant and reading about fetal developement only has strengthened my convictions about being Pro-Life. I believe Abortion is cruel and kinda selfish and cannot image the emotional aftermath of taking such a decision.

I swore I had already replied in this thread lol

Being pregnant and having a child made my pro-choice beliefs stronger. I first hand experienced how pregnancy can very negatively effect your health and risk your life and I don't think anyone who does not want to be pregnant should have to be.

From your blinkie, I assume you had pre-e? I had a mild case with my daughter, and severe pre-e with my son. It was the most horrible experience in my life. Of course I got my beautiful baby boy out of it, but it was awful having to go through it and watching him suffer from it also.


Back on topic though...
Becoming a mother has only strengthened my pro-choice stance. (Well, I am personally pro-life, but politically pro-choice, if that makes sense.) Being pregnant and then becoming a parent is one of the hardest, if not THE hardest job there is. Not everyone is meant to be a parent - at least not at any given time in their life. There are so many challenges that come along with being a parent, and I would not want to force anyone to do it if they didn't want to.

I honestly don't think having my son changed anything in that regard other than to make me more emotional about it - but my stance hasn't been moved an inch either way.

I'm alot more pro-choice. I was pro-life before but i am not pro-choice.
In all - Its the persons choice what they do. I 100% think its also half the fathers choice too tho.

Before I had DS#1 I was only open to abortion if the woman/girl was raped or incest, after DS#1 was born I met some ladies who like me developed a rare heart condition during pregnancy, and two were told die and leave your other child/children motherless or abort. I am now so open to medical abortion, I couldn't imagine leaving my children motherless.

I am pro-life even more now. The ONLY time I think abortion is warrented is if the pregnancy could result in death of the mother/child.
