I am definately pro choice. What I don't understand is why these young girls are not using birth control. Is it really that hard? Its their body, they are the ones that are going to suffer the consequences.
It amazes me when parents don't think that sex and birth control should be discussed because that will encourage them to have sex. Please, they are going to have sex whether you discuss it with them or not. The only difference is you will be discussing it with them when they come to tell you they are pregnant.
I worked in the health insurance industry for many years. You would not believe some of the people that I talked to. They would call when they were pretty far into the pregnancy asking what their insurance would cover for an abortion. Many times, they would wait so long they would have to go to another state where late term abortions were not illegal. Abortion was a covered benefit, but they would have to pay for it out of pocket and submit it for reimbursement. They didn't even have the money to pay for an abortion, how are they going to raise a kid? Many times I could see that this wasn't even their first abortion. I found it to be disgusting how matter of fact they were about it, and just seemed to find it to be an inconvenience.
