YES, to this. I am staunchly pro-life, as well as someone who has had an unplanned and unprepared-for pregnancy. I appreciate this statement so much, because there are many issues you have mentioned that go overlooked, and are never discussed. (This is one reason why I support my local pregnancy center which does exactly what you suggest further down — helping to make good parenthood viable for the mother and the father.) It’s not a simple topic.
