lol

I'm not sayin it's "ok".. I'm sayin "i understand"

there is a big difference. I've had friends have abortions... was I against it? YES.. did I tell them I was against it? YES.. but I still supported them.. and was there for them.. as I understood.

I am against abortion.

There is always a risk of getting pregnant, even if you took the necessary precaution.
In my opinion, if you are old enough to have sex, then you are old enough to take care of your responsibility to an innocent child that you might help conceive.

The only way I would ever even consider abortion to be allowed, is if someone was raped or molested.
I'm still not 100% with those circumstances either, because there is always adoption as another choice.
However, in those situations, in which you were forced to do something and a baby was conceived, then I could understand why someone would have an abortion, but I still don't agree with it 100%.

If you supported your friends, you must have thought it's ok. If I support the mass genocide in Darfur, how can I then say that I'm against murder? If I support 9/11, how I can I then say that I'm for peace? Why would you support someone who you believe is doing something wrong?

I think by support she meant "loved"

Should you stop loving your friend because they do something you don't agree with?  no no

I can't convince ppl to do what I believe is right. Everyone has their own thoughts/beliefs about things..as u are learning from this thread.

My role in life is not to dictate to others how they should live theirs or what to do.. I am to be the best person *I* can be...I stated my thoughts they made their decisions... yes it bothered me.. but I can't control other ppls actions.

This is something u learn in life as u get older.

I never said that you're a murderer or that it's you're fault that your friends had abortions. I was simply saying that it doesn't make sense to support someone's wrongdoings. If you meant you still loved them despite their abortions, then I'm sorry for the misunderstanding.

The point of the debate thread is to debate. I was doing no wrong by arguing with you.

I didn't support the action.. I supported the person.. long after it was over when it hit them .. what they had done. I meant exactly that I still cared about them and loved them after they made their choices....I'm 37.. it took me a long time in my life to realize it didnt matter how passionately I felt about something.. i cant make everyone believe as I do.

My goal was never to make you agree with my viewpoint. Rather, I am standing-up for what I believe and what is right.

mretz I think that is awesome.. I truly do and I have great admiration for that!!

I do not agree w/abortion.. I'm not arguing that. I'm just saying I can "understand" it in situations is all.. please do not take offense.

I am being respectful and I totally understand what you're saying.. truly I do... I use to be that passionate about it myself.

I can tell you from personal experience.. rape is hard enough to recover from w/out finding out ur pregnant. But regardless I respect you and your point of view and do appreciate you sharing it with us :)

Again, I am not for it.. but can 'understand".. if that makes any sense at all.
