I was raised to believe that I was fat and ugly and that I was a burden to my family. But now looking at old pictures I can see that I was neither fat nor ugly. (However, I have fulfilled the fat part of that image, maybe subconsciously fulfilling that belief.) So besides being pro-choice from the woman's point of view I am also pro-choice from the child's point of view. I don't wish anyone to grow up feeling unwanted. It has made my entire life sad and painful.
