Surely the very point that is being debated is the reason why we are not all the same, we are individuals, what is right for one is not right for all.
I do agree that the law and timescale surrounding abortion needs tightening. But if abortion is made illegal we go back to women dying, being shunned for making the wrong choice, where does it end?
I felt that I was being mature and taking responsibility for my actions, rather than bringing a child into the world that on doctors advice would only have known suffering and may not have known much of life. There are many different reasons for a decision but most women do not take this decision lightly. I agree not all women see the seriousness of the situation but for those few they may not see the seriousness in any area of their life.
But it is still an individuals right to choose, that being the emphasis of pro-choice. Not pushing someone to end a pregnancy because they do not fit a correct set of points - partner, house, etc. This returns us to single mothers homes, forced marriage and similar situations, which do no good for mother or child.
Or making someone keep a baby that may not want to or be able to care for them, not everyone is as mature or brave as the woman you know lakato.
There are many different types of maturity and responsibility. Otherwise we would all be carbon copies.
