88. Agreed! I know many women who are raising their grandchildren.

Often the bio parents are teens and/or on drugs and/or in prison. These women's lives are on indefinate hold, their finances destroyed, their plans derailed. Every single one I know who is doing this, and there are many, love their grandchildren, but they had zero say in something that has profoundly changed their lives.

I'm pro-choice to the extent that the individual's choice affects them. Once you expect others to bear the brunt for YOUR choices, it's a different situation.
