I included the MAP because it's more like an afterthought BC. Yes, sometimes it's because birth control fails, but I included it anyways.

The way hormonal/chemical birth control works (when it fails to stop ovulation which is sometimes to always depening on which prouct you use) is that is changes the lining of the uterus to be hostile to life. keeping the embryo from implanting and causing the newly concieved baby to die and be flushed out during menstrtion. at this point is has been alive for about a week give or take. if you believe life begins at conception this is an abortion. The baby is dying because of actions the mother took to intentionally eliminate it.
Due to medical (if I kept this pregnancy I would be on bed rest all 9 months, and most likely lose custody of my son) financial (Ds has health issues that are extrememly expensive to deal with) and personal (I am single, and not ready for another baby) reasons I am terminating my current pregnancy on Friday.
I am pro-choice, but not pro-abortion. But the fact that women's right to choose is even up for debate disgusts me.
