Comparing abortion to genocide is patently ridiculous, as well as offensive to those who are actual victims of genocide from racial, ethnic or cultural persecution. More
Every time I read one of these personal anecdotes – there’s a part of me that wonders why we have to share these deeply personal stories. Not because I’m against choice – because I’m not. Quite the opposite, actually. I’m feverishly pro-choice. I just hate what inevitably happens with these personal declarations of women. I feel that ultimately, they are dissected for motivation. Who are we explaining ourselves to and why?
The decision to have a baby or not is never an easy one, no matter your circumstances. Anonymous Mom gave us a heart-wrenching story yesterday about getting pregnant with a second child by her boyfriend and struggling to convince him and his family that she didn’t want to have an abortion. Most readers were supportive of her position, many reacting as you would expect from a Mommyish reader: it’s your choice. But I couldn’t help think, in the context of the story, isn’t it his choice too? More
For whatever reason a woman might choose to put an end to the life of her unborn fetus, I firmly believe that it’s no one’s business what her choice may be. Only the person involved knows whether or not this choice is right for them. I also believe that having an abortion should be an exception, and that the consequences of having the child should outweigh the consequences of having an abortion.
Yet, never did I imagine that the day would come where I would have to fight my boyfriend and his family for the right to keep my unborn child. More
Mommyish is a parenting website. We support all parents, and we also support people who don’t want to become parents. I have children who I love beyond words and I am pro-choice. I don’t think these two things are mutually exclusive. More
I stand with Wendy, you stand with Wendy, and a federal judge is standing with Wendy, too. The most awesome filibuster of all time was not executed in vain. A federal judge declared today new abortion restrictions passed by the Texas Legislature are unconstitutional and will not take effect tomorrow as scheduled. More
This week, the high court decided she “had not shown she is sufficiently mature and well-informed enough to decide on her own whether to have an abortion.” By default, she is sufficiently mature to birth and raise a child, but clearly the high court hasn’t realized the faulty logic here. More
In perhaps taking a page from The Daily Telegraph, which constructed a preggo lady sting operation that uncovered doctors willing to perform sex-selective abortions, pregnant women in India are doing the same. And they’re doing such a bang up job that the government is even considering handing out cash rewards for their valiant efforts.

I, like many of the anonymous mothers in the film, faced a doomed pregnancy. Unlike the moms in the film, the decision was made for me by my body – I went into an early labor before anyone realized I was having a placental abruption. If the condition had been discovered sooner, however, I would have faced a difficult decision; whether or not to terminate my potentially deadly pregnancy.
And what could be more festive than celebrating Halloween than scooping the guts out of a pumpkin and carving a pro-life message into it and shoving a candle inside and proudly displaying it for all the children who come knocking for candy? Nothing I say! More
Sex selective abortions are a hair-splitting topic on the abortion rights spectrum. While a woman choosing abortion based solely on a child’s gender surely leaves a bad taste in everyone’s mouth, the legal right to do so persists.The Daily Telegraph took a few doctors’ temperature on such an intersection of awful and WTF with a “purely journalistic operation” that resulted in no charges whatsoever for the doctors who obliged.

What happened to Remee Lee might just be every pregnant woman’s nightmare. After telling her boyfriend, John Welden, that she was pregnant, he was less than thrilled. He begged her to get an abortion, but she was adamant about keeping the baby. Reluctantly Weldon went along with it, until a few weeks into her pregnancy when he allegedly tricked her into taking Cytotec, causing her to miscarry. Most people who hear about this case are horrified, but some men’s rights activists, see a deeper issue at hand, and for once I am inclined to agree. More
It’s very progressive that they are doing it very publicly in the NY Times where everyone including their dentists and their neighbors and future grandchildren can one day read about it. It’s very progressive that other people will read this and maybe think about their own views regarding abortion and women’s reproductive health. But in a wedding story? I’m old fashioned, and I don’t believe that in a very public wedding story that it merits its very own paragraphs. More
