I really wasn’t sure if I was going to write this post, let alone publish it for judgemental eyes to read.
As most of my readers will be aware-maybe the reason they’d be surprised at the content of this blog-I have had three miscarriages between having Kye and Olivia. It took us two years to get Olivia, and after the heartache of losing babies, I can understand if people are a little shocked that I would write about this kind of thing.
If I fell pregnant now, while on the contraceptive pill, it would be a massive mistake (hence the use of the pill). I’m very clear when I speak to people about how adamant I am, that I won’t have any more children. It would, for want of a less dramatic explanation, ruin my marriage. Neither myself or my husband, want another baby-in fact, in a month, my husband will be having a vasectomy, to prevent any unwanted pregnancies happening.
Because we both agree no more babies are entering our lives, if I was to fall pregnant now, we’d be straight to to the doctor to book in for a termination.
That decision is based on our current circumstances. I can’t comment on how I would feel different if I had no children or just one.
To me, we are done. Another baby would ruin so much-and I know that’s hard to read, because babies are supposed to be a blessing-how could one little human ruin lives.
But it would, because to us it wouldn’t be a blessing.
I know people who are in their 30’s, with no children, but are still adamant they’re not ready for babies, and that they’d also terminate a pregnancy should it happen for them now. They don’t want a baby, and why should an innocent baby be forced to be brought into a world they’re not wanted in?
How would the anti-abortion law work, in the current financial climate? With cuts to the NHS and very little mental health funding as it is, we’re then expected to make women go through with pregnancies that they don’t want, possibly culminating in them resenting a child, a rise in post natal depression, and mental health issues, that there isn’t funding to treat?
Politically, the pro-choice opinion is rife, social media is buzzing with the worry over the leader of our government choosing to join forces with a party, that are so against women having right to do what they want with their bodies.
Anti-abortion isn’t an option-it would ruin this country, taking away the rights of women, who should have the right to make decisions on their own lives.
Passing a law to make having abortions legal, won’t just stop people having them, it will increase people having them in a dangerous way.
If this law is passed, what does that mean for those who’s lives will be at risk if they were to fall pregnant? Are they then forced to continue with a pregnancy, that could possibly end in their death?
I cannot think of any (acceptable) reason, that a political party would have, to pass and enforce such a deplorable law.
A woman should be in charge of her own body, just as a man should be in charge of his.
Arlene Foster (leader of the DUP) and Theresa May (PM and leader of the Conservative party), appear to have forgotten the women that fought for their rights many years ago.
I’m pro-choice, pro-abortion and pro-women’s rights. I’m not ashamed to have this view and I think it important that those who do believe in those things, speak up to drown out the moronic and senseless ideologies that are set to shape this country, should the DUP and Theresa May make it so.
Take courage, join hands, stand beside us, fight with us.
