I am personally pro-life; the thought of abortion is inconceivable. I have a “friend” who is the exact opposite and obnoxiously announces her pro-choice stance at every given opportunity. When she found out she was pregnant she was extremely excited by it until this past weekend when she sadly miscarried her baby. She is now begging for sympathy and I am so frustrated by her hypocrisy. If you are going to defend the right to abort babies, you don’t have the right to be upset when yours dies!!!!!

This is a very difficult position to be in, for both you and her because…

She will tell you that her child only had value and deserved life because she wanted him or her to live.

She will tell you that she believes the only person capable of conferring value to a prenatal child is the mother carrying him or her.

She will tell you that if she had not wanted to be pregnant, she could have easily killed the exact same child she now mourns without regret.

This is a difficult position for you because you clearly understand that all human beings hold equal value, regardless of their location, their level of dependency, their size, or the whims of their mother.

It is a difficult position for her because deep down, she knows the exact same thing. Especially now.
