I was not ready to have a child when I found out I was pregnant. Although I am pro choice for everyone else, I could never have an abortion. I felt I would have been not only killing my child but also a part of me. My friends and family members that have had abortions have had difficult times including night mares after their abortions. I don't think I could have handled all of that and I decided to keep my baby. It has been a constant struggle but she is the joy of my life. I still stand firmly behind a woman's right to choose. In conclusion, Obama stands firm on his support of pro-choice. He believes by effectively educating teens we can reduce teen pregnancy, in turn, reducing abortion. He also believes that we should always trust a woman enough to make her own moral decision about abortion. Obama believes that a woman's right to choose should always be protected. ...read more.
