******** is never something to be praised for I agree, but the right of autonomy with one's body is extremely important.
In the current world we live in, a lot of households cannot function without two household incomes (both parents working), as everything is just getting a lot more expensive. In our early 20s most of us are starting careers or still in University. Accidents do happen unfortunately, people get pregnant on birth control, using ******s etc. and a lot of women aren't in the position to raise a c***d, some can't look after themselves, and I've SEEN what happens when people who aren't fit to have a c***d have them, they become neglected, depressed and mentally ill later on, I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
However, it shouldn't be something to be praised, or demeaned, it should just be something that happens that sucks. Men do have the short end of the stick when it comes to custody of their k***s, and there are many double standards between the genders. How come when a person is 'brain d**d' in a coma we can end their life by pulling the plug but a foetus with barely a heart beat and not even conscious, is not allowed to be t********d? You could argue that there is the potential there for the life to develop in a foetus, but a brain d**d person will never be able to live a 'life' of their own again.
If I became pregnant right now, an ******** would be honestly traumatising, I'm still unsure of whether I would keep it, as it would mean giving up on my degree, going into debt, potentially getting me and my boyfriend kicked out of our homes, the stigma of being young parents (although thats the least of my worries), I'll probably resent my partner later on and the k*d wouldn't have a mum and dad living together etc.
It is a huge responsibility that a lot of people are not ready for, but I think you are especially brave for deciding to keep the c***d and raise it, this world nowadays makes it difficult to put k***s before careers, in conclusion we're all just slaves I'll probably end up adopting when I'm older too
TL;DR: Tried to make balanced argument, I'm pro choice but recognise the struggles men go through when it comes to wanting a c***d/custody
