Would anyone like to share theirs?
From the piece:
For starters, she had not asked me my opinion. Even if she did, I wouldn’t have suggested she keep it. We were not going to last; we both knew that. We were only having a good time, although we did are about each other. We even told each other, ““I love you,"” although in retrospect I did not mean int. Moreover, I had been raised in an ultra-liberal household, where being pro-choice was the default position. I was taught to be a liberal, and I grew into an adult holding the opinion that if you got pregnant but were not ready for the child, abortion was a reasonable option.
In retrospect, I had a moment of reflection when she told me that this would be her fifth abortion. Yes, she was that woman that conservatives talk about who uses abortion as a form of birth control. Although this troubled me, it did not make me more desirous of bringing a baby into that relationship. I drove her to the clinic. In the lobby, a TV was turned to “Forrest Gump.” As I waited there, the scene played in which Jenny’s Black Panther boyfriend calls Forrest a “baby-killer.” No joke.
