A follow up to my post, which may be read here, regarding Steve Jobs, Adoption and Abortion. Pro-lifers have gotten some static for bringing up the fact that Steve Jobs could have ended up aborted if his mother had not chosen life for him. Well, it appears that Steve Jobs was thankful that his mother did not choose to kill him through abortion.

“I wanted to meet [her] mostly to see if she was OK and to thank her, because I’m glad I didn’t end up as an abortion,” he said. “She was 23 and she went through a lot to have me.”

Go here to read the rest. Adoption, it’s a choice we can all live with.

I was against abortion.

Then my thoughts turned to Obama.

I don’t think abortion was legal at the time.

That fact didn’t stop some people then, and it wouldn’t stop some people now.

Abortion was very available before it was legal.

All the claptrap about “back-alley abortions” is disingenuous.

I cringed when a fellow NCO bragged about making money in college, by performing them....(He was referring to late 60’s)

They just called it a "D&C."

There were plenty of obstetricians who would do it.

Roe v. Wade just gave Planned Parenthood a monopoly, is all.

A facorite bumper sticker:

 
 
"Aren't you glad your mother didn't have an abortion?"
