I'm sure that at least some of you have noticed that I haven't been online much lately, there's a reason for that. I actually took a week's vacation. Over the course of the last week, I drove from my home in Charleston with my family to visit friends and family in DC; and then I drove on to New Jersey (yeah I know, who goes to New Jersey on a vacation right?). While I was in Jersey I took the train into New York City a couple of times to spend a couple of days enjoying the sights and food in the Big Apple.
While I was on vacation a couple of things that stood out in my mind.
While I wouldn't want my own child aborted, I believe that it's wrong for anyone to dictate to a woman whether or not she should bare a child. I believe that ultimately the choice is hers and that she and she alone should be responsible for that decision. Don't get me wrong, it would be nice to know that a man and a woman sat down together to make the choice. But since she is responsible for carrying the child and eventually taking care of it, I believe that she should make that choice.
