Although you feel strongly about abortions being incorrect, remember that these are YOUR own personal beliefs. Your friend might have other believe and also ultimately it will be her decision to make since it is her body. Remember that a true friend will respect the opposing beliefs of their friends and offer their love and support in hard times such as these. Also, be cautious of the words you chose to use such as, "Killing your own child". These words are harmful and will not help your friend. Instead offer her other choices but respect whatever decision she makes in the end.

Every woman has the right to make her own decisions about her body. Every woman's life must be the most important factor that is focused on when she is making her choice about having an abortion. She definitely needs to be surrounded by people who support her and her ability to choose. People should not impose misguided beliefs that are influenced by our male-dominated society onto her or any woman who is considering having an abortion.

It is her body and her choice, and as a friend your place is to support her, whatever decision she makes. If it is not your pregnancy, it is not your decision.
