Woman talk about this subject with so much superiority, fear, and judgment that I found it impossible to get a balanced and educated perspective on the subject until I went though it. I have heard women on both sides make sweeping statements that are very offensive. If we want women to make smart educated decisions I think there is a need to examine how we talk about this subject. The OP wanted to know why there was judgment, it the same reason no matter what the subject is, fear, need to defend one's choices, and seeing the world form only their personal perspective. I agree with PP that most people try to do their best with the information that they have, that is why smart nonjudgmental conversation on this subject is so important. Also, most MDC members do not try to judge any individual person and their decisions, I just think they feel strongly about a subject and it may come across in the wrong way.
