My daughter took a morning after pill, which at a very practical level I am OK with. Yet the "granny" in me screams in agony still. I actually got really angry at her for telling me - it was between her, her boyfriend and God. If she had wanted or needed my advice, that is one thing, but to tell me after the fact.... Why?
I believe with all my heart that as long as we allow politicians to engage in this discussion, it will incite the division they seek. Caught in the crossfire are frightened teenagers and fetuses.
If we really held motherhood as sacred, and celebrated even the "Oops!" babies, we have a chance of ending the NEED for abortion. Instead, we condemn teenagers who get pregnant and condemn them for trying to make the shameful pregnancy go away.
