I love kids, I have worked with them my entire life (being raised in a large family and working for the elementary schools locally). The answer is medical. But what does this all come down to? It comes down to the fact that I made a choice, and I chose my own health and safety over the pain and anguish. So, I have never even reconsidered what I did. What it all boils down to is that people (men and women) have a right to choose in our nation, and whatever their reasons for their decision it is theirs. I only ask that if anyone ever has to make the decision, EVER, they need to be one hundred percent sure. I was, but other people have berated me over the years when they find out. And yet I still have no doubts.
The right to choose is all that some people like me ask. If a couple has to make a decision and they are not one hundred percent sure, (both of them independently), then they should seek counseling. And there are all kinds of places they can get it, just ask.
