I find it necessary to defend Roe v. Wade on its 30th anniversary, because it was so important in the fight for women's liberties and the decision not to bring a chid into this crazy world if conditions were wrong.
We all know the best birth control methods can fail and that the average person is generally not equipped to spend the next 18 years raising a child for many reasons - emotional, financial, social, other.
I remember when the bill was passed, knowing it would change reality forever. The teenage girls I taught, most from ghetto areas of Brooklyn, would now have choices. At last a woman could make her own choice unless otherwise coerced by someone else.
I remember the days before women had freedom of choice, and they were often barbaric. Though people today don't always terminate unwanted pregnancies, often due to religious belief systems, there should be a choice, and I have helped many clients go through that.
There have always been clients who know their parents never wanted them and were treated as such. The world is crazy and children should only be born to those who are equipped to raise them with love and compassion.
