Post Secret

I am a regular at Post Secret. The things other people have to confess really make me shiver. These couple of postcards really struck me. Thought I would share.

The second pic hit home for me.

It also amazes me to see how many cases there are of moms confessing babies to be someone else's, yet the nice guy remains.

A friend of mine has that situation. And she so doesn't deserve it. ALthough, the dude has turned out to be a bit of a prick, so all is fair in love and infidelity I suppose.

That second photo really struck me. That's why I'm against abortion. Many people out there are killing their innocent babies because they are afraid of being parents.

And? Is that wrong? If someone doesn't know how to be a parent and are afraid to have children, why should we force them? So they can realize they're not ready and make the kid's life miserable? If someone wants to get an abortion, let them. Just because someone regrets it doesn't mean it should be illegal for everyone.

just because someone isn't ready to commit to being a parent doesn't necessarily give them the right to abort their child. If they're really not that ready, then they should give it up to someone or a family that wants a really child. but to say that you're going to kill the child growing inside you just because you're not feeelin it.. that is wrong.

I was too scared to be a father doesn't mean that the mother aborted the baby. He may have 'left' and thus mom is on her own. With any luck, a supportive family behind her. I could also mean the baby was given up for adoption. Stop judging.

"Giving it up for adoption."

It's not as simple as it sounds. YOU have obviously never seen or been in that kind of situation. Carrying a child for 9 months isnt a walk in the park. its painful. expensive. and all for nothing, just to give your baby away? I disagree. I love children but I have seen both adoption AND abortion. Someone shouldn't have a child if THEY don't want it. whatever their reasons for not being able to conceive it.

amanzimtoti, you're an idiot. That is an ULTRASOUND. He didn't abort the baby. He abandoned the mother. It is really not surprising though, that anti-choice people jump to the abortion debate, but that isn't what happend. The picture is a fetus that is far past where it could be aborted. The guy deserted the mother of his child.
