To be perfectly honest, I wouldn't get an abortion, but I'm not carrying the child, so it would have to be the mother's choice completely.

Good idea for a group. I basically feel that if the mother cannot safely have the child, she should not be expected to. If the mother does not want the child, I do not want her to bring it into the world. People say "just make them put the kid up for adoption" which is an OK solution, but not an optimal one. I've gotten the feeling that kids in the adoption program have it rougher than anyone ought to that early in life.

I shall peruse your links.

Well, I would still be interested in helping however I can.

I think the issue was that most of us had said what we had to say on the matters brought up, and it stagnated.

Great idea for a group!

If you're still interested in starting that "Pro-Choice Day of Awareness" thing, you might want to link it from here too.
