How pro-choice are you? justanothamotha Due January 20; 130 kids; Climax, Michigan 5120 posts

So - if you are pro-choice when it comes to aabortion....



Do you support a woman (or man) getting their fertility permanently removed (meaning tubal ligation or vasectomy) at ANY time they want it?



Do you support a woman birthing ANY way SHE wants to - including (but not limited to) a fully elective c-section (assuming she has been made aware of said risks) as well as a freebirthing alone unassisted (assuming she too is well aware of all said risks)?



If you said yes to abortion & no to either of the other two - please include why they are different in your eyes... THANKS!

Totally. Everything should be legal.



I don't agree with several choices and don't think women SHOULD do them, but they should be legal.

Yes I believe that they should be able to remove their fertility at any time.
As for the elective c section and free birth I may not be supportive but I'm also not going to tell them that they are terrible for choosing that. If they want to do it by all means do what you choose with your body.

I think it's stupid and dumb to have an elective cesarean but not my body. How a woman gives birth is between her and her doctor. I think any adult 18+ should have the right to permanent birth control and its a choice between them and their doctor although I would strongly urge them to consider all available options just like I would encourage a woman considering abortion to consider all options.

I think they should all be legal but dont necessarily think those are great decisions. Just like my view on abortion. I dont think its right but I dont think it should be illegal either.

I think abortion is wrong personally because you have a fetus, however I don't argue with someone individually about making that choice if they thought it was best for them. I just know I wouldn't be able to do it personally. The removal of not being able to have or make babies well in a way the babies aren't here yet so it seems okay that the choice be up to the person. if they felt they didn't want anymore children and a final way of doing it then yea its okay. would i be able to..tubes tied no i can't they use a metal ring and im alergic to most medals it would have to be my husband that did the procedure and we have talked about it. I don't agree with the unassisted just because I feel that it is very dangerous. If you don't want meds fine that is one thing even at a hospital you can reject them but things can go seriously wrong during labor. I want to know my baby will be safe when I deliver or as much as humanly possible. the risks of being unassisted are to high a chance for me.

Yes to all of those, though it is riskier getting an elective cesarean-not just to the mother but the baby as well. That's what makes me go ehh. Same with a completely unassisted pregnancy.

Yes and yes. Why a woman would choose an elective c-section is beyond me but that's her decision.

Yes to all. I wouldnt personally elect to have a c section and dont understand why anyone would but its their body, not mine. Totally their choice

Yes. It's not my body and I don't think I have a right to tell someone else what they can and cant do with theirs. Though I think elective c-sections are dangerous and I would advise against it if anyone were to ask but if that is what someone wants to do I don't think anyone has the right to tell them no.

I personally wouldn't have an abortion or a procedure to render me infertile unless they were medically necessary but to each their own.



I think that women have the right to choose how they give birth but should also be open to the suggestions of others when making the choice to use a certain method. I've become quite open minded since my birthing experience. I went into the hospital demanding a low intervention labour and delivery and ended up needing 4 midwives, a doctor and a surgical consult after things went awry. A few hours later I was on so many drugs, strapped to a table and had a team of what seemed like 50 tending to me while I was cut open. How a baby is delivered shouldn't be a matter of debate. What matters is that they're here and healthy.

It is part of the debate though. The U.S. has one of the highest rates of infant AND maternal mortality in the world.

whats with the whole c-section thing. I don't understand. I'm not trying to make anyone mad. I have had 2 vbac and so have never considered a c-section well I know its a choice but if I can do it natural then I don't know just feels what I'm suppose to do. However if during any of my pregnancies the babies started to weigh almost or over 9lbs I would do a c-section, but thats because of medical risks at that point. doesn't a surgery have risks no matter what it is they are doing or is it something more?
