    Thanks. The jerk was convicted when I was 32. Hardest thing I had to do in my life but I would do it again. What sucked was 3 victims and he got 6 years... That is one thing I wish Canada did better at is in sentencing violent criminals.

    I just can't comprehend how a fetus. a not-yet-born-but-potential person, is the most important factor in this equation. She was raped by her mom's boyfriend for two years? Too bad, not the fault of the unborn's. Only 11 and at great risk for complications? Too bad. Should we not think of those who are already living?

    But then there is no consideration for the long-term effects. Change your mind and want to walk away from your child when she/he is 12? Oh, well that's perfectly fine then. You will always have the option of just walking away.

    This is not true. We want Chile to legalize an abortion for this girl.

    And I don't have the emotional energy tonight to make all the other arguments I want, so I just liked everything that Melis, Jessica, EW and the others on the pro-choice side have posted.

I have many, many, educated, well off friends who are happily married with children who would have their entire lives derailed by becoming mothers and having to drop out of college etc. for people with a bigger picture life - well- this whole abortion ruins you is just a lie told by the small, fear lingering religious right
    And I'm very grateful that abortion was an option for me. I was happily married, and looking forward to being a mother -- some day -- but the first time I got pregnant was such terribly bad timing it was unbelievable. New job, just out of school, no maternity coverage but making too much to qualify for any kind of aid, working 60+ hours a week and expecting more when tax season hit, at a small-enough company to not have job protection if I couldn't maintain that schedule due to pregnancy. Yeah, that sounds like a perfect situation to have a baby. NOT! Nine months of pregnancy and give birth, just to hand that baby to someone else? NO WAY! Abortion was the best decision, I felt nothing but immense relief, and never think about it except during debates like this. A few years later, we were absolutely delighted to get pregnant with Tiven because we were in a better position, and we were ready to be parents.

    I think you can't talk about the trauma of abortion without also considering the trauma of carrying a pregnancy to term at age 11 and the trauma of giving that baby up. It's not like giving a baby up for adoption is easy and has no Lon term effects on the mother. It is a wonderful, life-affirming noble thing but it haunts people for the rest of their lives.

    None of this is easy.

    Most of all this 11-year-old is the victim, not a hero, not someone to be used by political leaders and others. She is not capable of making an informed decision; she is an abused child with no parental support. Someone needs to put her first. Sadly it looks like nobody will.

    In our state CHILDREN are given sexual medical rights. They can consent to any sexual procedure or meds without parental notification, and parents must pay for it with insurance etc.

    It seems backwards that since this CHILD is now choosing life for her unborn, that the PRO-CHOICERS are arguing with her. Does she have the right to choose or not?

    I don't believe she is choosing of her own free will. I think she is being told what to do. Also she is a rape victim....not normal circumstances. She needs counseling.

    Not one person thinks she should be forced to abort.

    Which children have totally free will?
    Which people are totally free of outside influences when making a decision?
    I agree on counseling.. but I don't see real counseling offered much.
