Life is Love. Love is Life.

[Note:  I understand this is a very sensitive issue.  I hope you understand that while this is a very important issue to me, I do not mean to offend anyone. With lots of Love to You, no matter your position on the issue, Anna.]

“If we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, 
how can we tell other people to not kill each other? 
Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching 
its people to love, but to use any violence to get 
what they want.” -Mother Teresa

  6. I don't agree with this at all. I believe in a woman's right to choose and there are many different circumstances and stages of pregnancy. Abortion is a terribly hard thing to go through as a woman, but sometimes it is just the best way. I don't take abortion lightly in the same way as I don't think people should use the morning after pill regularly and only in cases of emergency. And I definitely don't agree with abortions in late stages of pregnancy, but I think that as long as it's at the beginning and it's justified there is nothing wrong with it. Obviously we should all be educated in safe sex and abortion and things like that. But you know, sometimes shit happens and I would not want to bring a child into the world if I'm not gonna be able to provide for it. I want to be able to give it all, to be prepared and to be able to provide my child with a stable upbringing.

    One thing I think should be more widely available is post-abortion psychological attendance. There are some places to go to and stuff, but it can be very hard to find the right person to help you deal with this issues.

    SO yeah, I strongly disagree with the quote, but you know, I'm not gonna unsubscribe from your blog because you're still awesome :) and I fully understand your opinion. Maybe too personal, but are you religious? You don't have to answer, but I always wonder about people's faith when it comes to these issues.

    Longest comment ever award goes to me!

  7. Thanks for the point! I think it's a tough issue for sure. I am Catholic - every vigil we have had for pro-life we begin with praying for the mothers & their turmoil they must be experiencing. Never have they criticized the mother, rather prayed for her healing emotional & physical. I have a friend who suffered through the experience & I will never judge her for it- nor any other mother. I just pray that such circumstances will be far more rare & that industries of helping raise the children will become the main place which people turn.

    Thanks for your opinion & for your support of my blog otherwise. :D you're amazingly awesome yourself! Xoxo

  8. Yeah the fact that you're catholic helps me understand your point of view even more because I was raised catholic but I am about the worst religious person ever. More of an existentialist, me.

    I think the point of all this is that people need to be a lot more educated in sexual matters. It's weird how we are absolutely surrounded by sex but so stupidly ignorant when it comes to the true facts about it.
