A “Toxic” outlook for people with a toxic viewpoint.
This is actually really heartening and great to hear.
Ah yes, a country where a pregnant person will be forced through their pregnancy, even if they’re suicidal. A place where a person’s reproductive rights are trampled all over in favor of a fetus. Great to hear!
Abortion is not a ‘fix’ for depression. Any psychologist, counsellor or psychiatrist can tell you that.
But letting this person live with something that actively reminds them of their attack every day, rather than granting them the right to an abortion (which they were allowed to do, since they were suicidal) is so much better.
Pro-life compassion, everyone.
As somebody who had suicidal urges directly caused by pregnancy, I can tell you right now that the abortion I had definitely fixed that particular episode.
And funnily enough, when I brought this up with my psych he said to call him if I discover I’m pregnant again and have the same reaction while under his care and he’d make sure I could avoid waiting lists for an abortion because he considered any future pregnancy a danger to my mental and physical health. You know, because when you’ve got tokophobia that ties in with pregnancy/baby related psychosis triggers, abortion really is a life saver.
But hey, who cares about my life when there was a 9 week fetus at stake, right?
