Mentally Ill Lecture

This question references this post.

anonymous:

Why exactly do you think it’s acceptable to lecture a mentally ill teenager about her health? I guess you really don’t believe that the mother’s life should be protected. You are seriously telling a girl whose pregnancy is driving her to a relapse into a fatal eating disorder that she is nothing more than a murderer. You have zero compassion.

Why don’t we all work to help her through this? Why are all of the pro-choice advocates like you cheering her on to kill her child. How do you think this is going to affect her mental state? Most women without mental issues struggle with the aftermath of their decision. Imagine how the guilt and sorrow of having killed her child is going to affect her. And don’t dismiss this by saying ‘oh, she’ll be fine, much better off than having her child’. Remember, there are two people at stake here.

And why doesn’t anyone offer her the choice of adoption. Shouldn’t that always be the first thing out of a pro-choice advocates mouth? I can’t tell you how many times I have heard pro-choice advocates state that abortion is the last resort, yet I never see the other two choices of parenthood and adoption mentioned.
