Just because it didn't affect your friend's lives doesn't mean they can speak for everyone else. I have heard many stories from women who WERE haunted for the rest of their life. I was listening to the radio just a few days ago when they were talking about the abortion bill they just passed in Texas and a woman called in and told how she had an abortion 20 years ago and it still affects her enough that she was crying on the phone. I think as medical science allows people to see that these babies are not just a mass of tissue more people become pro-life for reasons other than religion.
    Based upon the links you post you clearly only read one side of news. That side has a vested interest in promoting these people who lament their entire life. The "oh poor me the sinful murdering victim". Statistically their stories are the minority.

    eta: I could link you to tons of sights telling the stories of people who were abused/hurt/demoralized/emotionally scarred for life from the Christian, catholic, Norman, Muslim, Jehovah's Witness church etc......

    you would say they are a minority. So are your wounded people.

    There is a huge difference between "forcing you to kill your own baby" and having an abortion. And at 11, you would not have had the cognitive or emotional maturity to fully understand an abortion.

    When we look at our lives in hindsight and project future beliefs/feelings, the reality is very different than what we think it is/was/will be.

    I don't see a huge difference. And I think it would be even harder for an 11 year old to understand someone forcing her to have an abortion that she doesn't want. I think it would be very difficult to explain to her why it is necessary to kill the baby she knows she has growing inside her.

    So she's not mature enough to ponder a pregnancy termination as a *possible* option but she is mature enough to make a decision to endure a pregnancy and those potential risks, labor and delivery and those potential risks as well as being mature enough to raise a child.

    Again, no one said to force abortion on her.

    She has made that decision. She said she wants the baby. I don't think no one is saying that. No one has come right out and said it but the inference is that she is not mature enough to make the decision so should be forced to have an abortion.

    I think this is a huge example of why abortion should be restricted. This girl (and other girls and women) need to know risks and benefits of all the options that exist. There is a chance she could die giving birth being so young. Is anyone telling her that? Doubtful.

    The maternal death rates in Chile are even lower than the U.S. so I think her chances are pretty good.

    That's all births. Not births for 11 year olds.

    I was raped when I was 11. There is no freaking way that I would have been ready for a baby. I had been babysitting my baby nephews for 2 years at that point and knew how hard babies were to deal with. I was terrified that I was pregnant, I did not know the difference between changes in my body due to puberty and changes that would occur in pregnancy. My church would have approved an abortion had I been pregnant, though I am pretty sure I had no idea what that was.

    Making a rape victim go through with an unwanted pregnancy continues the torture. I did have one friend who chose to keep her pregnancy from rape but she said it was very hard and although her son is now 20 she still feels the pain of his conception.
