I hate hate seeing things about abortion. I’m getting more blood work done, trying to find out what is wrong with me, why I can’t have kids, what I can do about it.
Life is just so beautiful and special and just means too much to throw any of it away for any reason. Money shouldn’t ever be an issue. Any quality of life is better than no life. Even if someone’s quality of life is poor- I’m sure they wouldn’t want to die. I hate hearing that argument, that the child’s quality of life would be poor. You don’t know what will happen. And I hate hearing about how it would destroy the mother’s life- because I don’t believe that either. Adoption is a caring option- and I know too many women now- specially since I joined the Navy- who have gotten abortions and regret it now because now they’ll never know what could have been, how their child would be- never get the chance to seek them out.
For me PERSONALLY- I do think if it’s life threatening for the mother or baby they should have the choice to do what they want- but for me- I would never choose to abort my baby if I could ever have one. Not if I were going to die, not if my child had a disability, not for anything. I would die for my child, love him or her unconditionally. Or really any child, I’d happily die for- or any one. Because life is important.
And people assume, that life isn’t important to me since I joined the military. But when I joined- I joined to help people. I volunteered to serve, and do my best to end a war, and if I was given the option, lower the death toll. I’m choosing to die if needed- I’m choosing to die for my country, and the people I’m fighting against are doing the same thing, they’re choosing to die for what they believe is right. I am anti- drone strikes, I am anti mindless killing(as most of us are against the second one) and if ever given the option to change some things in the military- I’d do it in a heart beat. And that’s why I joined.
Working longer and longer shifts. Every night I get off like an hour later. 2am tonight. Probably 3am tomorrow- all the way until I’m highfiving the day shift at 0630 I bet ahaha
