Tell you what i read.
Next time in the long distance future, people will become mum at 5 years old.
And live to a ripe old age of 20.
It is a cycle of life. Growth,destruction, start again.. ...
Interesting theory. Perhaps our destruction of Nature will lead to that, there is already speculation (and maybe evidence? not sure) that chemicals in our lives are making kids hit puberty sooner... and if we start dying sooner too because of cancer and other things we are bringing upon ourselves... then I could see that cycle happening. (of course, I could see us living longer and longer too!)
And my story is very similar to Peaches's's.... While I would definitely call myself "pro-choice", I don't know if I personally could have an abortion. I DIDN'T, at age 18, when a lot of kids my age would have. It is NOT a light thing to do. Once you know there is a baby inside you, you are attached! The moment I even suspected my son might be inside me, I was talking to him, feeling love, telling him he was beautiful and healthy and smart, loving him, even while my belly was still flat! No one should ever tell a woman whether she should have an abortion or not have one. I believe it should be entirely up to the individual. Believe me, anyone of sane, even partially healthy emotions will not have an easy time with that decision and making them feel like crap about it (either decision) is not helpful at all.
(fine, mike, you got my abortion opinion out of me, ok?)
