Hot Topic - GUEST POST
Abortion has always been a controversial topic that produces heated discussions, no matter which side a person is in favour of.
My new American friend “LeeAnne” has written a heart-felt, sincere, articulate, common-sense post on this very volatile topic. The writer in me is a wee bit jealous of her words but I asked her if I could share her post and she graciously said yes.
So here it is:
(First) I will add a trigger warning for content related to politics, religion (mild mention), sexual assault/violence, strong language, and the unedited sharing of my opinion.
I've already lost a couple (hundred) "friends," some family apparently, on FB for the views I've shared. Some have told me. Some just disappeared. That's okay. I don't delete anyone for differing opinions. I do however for harassment, threats of violence, or just continually being an outright ass, unless I already know that's just your personality and how you come across. That said, I love all my friends. You are still allowed, at least on my page, to express your opinions. I only ask the previously mentioned things be kept in mind. If anyone that chooses to read this, decides they just cannot agree to disagree (you will NOT change my mind) and wants to leave, you are free to do so.
Some parts of some statements may feel like a repeat. Bear with me. My brain is fried. And overall, this is a collection of various responses to numerous people. I will try to edit some to keep it coherent, but no promises.
So hold on to your scarlet letters...
Me? Canadian, writer, RN, crafter, Girl Guide Leader, Red Hatter, 3-dog owner, photographer, geocacher, cool Mom, and all around FUN and FUNNY person!
