Well sorry that you went through all that.
Everyone deals with things differently but she never had those complications and neither do I. So not sure what I would do given different circumstances. But I still don't think abortion would be a consideration.
A lot of my Christian friends think I'm selfish because I would absolutely abort in a case of downs, or spina bifida, or ectopic ... or pretty much any medical condition that would mean my child would have to go through pain and suffering on a daily basis.
I don't care ... be proud of you 'selfishness'.
This is why there are women's rights you should be able to choose what you want to do with your body. No one can say how they would feel unless they are in your shoes
If I were to get pregnant right now or be pregnant right now I would abort. I just simply don't want another baby.
I think the term selfish means placing concern for yourself and your own interests above the well being or interest of others, so I say yes that would have been a selfish decision, because the well being and interest of others wouldn't have been a concern for you if you made that decision for those reasons.
Every reason for having, aborting, or adopting out a baby is selfish. I don't try to rank them.
It shouldn't effect anyone but you and your SO. Because it's non of their damn bushiness.

Man, wish life had "sorted itself out" when I was pregnant with a 4 year old and homeless.
Also, pregnancy may be temporary, but being a parent sure as fuck isn't.

Or, you know...homeless for 8 months.

I wonder if you've ever actually been broke.
Like, literally having one small meal every three days or so because your child needs to eat more than you do and you're already two months behind on rent and three months on electricity BROKE.
money is pretty fucking important.
<blockquote><b>Quoting Dr. Paradigm Shift:</b>" <blockquote><b>Quoting Legendary Amanda:</b>" <blockquote><b>Quoting Dr. ... [snip!] ... abortion is tagged as being so selfish, but when someone who can't conceive insists on a perfect newborn- that isn't selfish."</blockquote>
Adopting is still selfish. Because YOU want to do it because it'd make YOUR life happy and better.
