As requested in FFFC

So, I want to see where everyone stands on the following. Lets see if we can discuss like adults.

Circumcision: yes/no

Breastfeeding: will you/won't you

Vaccinating: will you/won't you

Pro-life/Pro-choice:

If I forgot any of the requested conversation topics, or there are any other big dividing questions you can think of, feel free to add on.

Yes, I'm stirring the pot. But they're all pretty important issues, and I kind of want to see where everyone falls.

    Circumcision: yes

    Breastfeeding: I would like to try. We'll see what happens.

    Vaccinating: yes.

    Pro-life/Pro-choice: both. I'm pro choice but think pro life is the best option in every case where it's not medically necessary to abort. No exceptions. None.


    ETA: just to clarify, I've had several people in my life confide in my me that they have had abortions and I legitimately am ok with it because it's not my decision to live with, I just don't think it's ever the BEST choice.

    This.
  • Circumcision: yes
    Breastfeeding: I will try my darnedest, last time I started pumping at about 3 months and struggled to keep my supply up. DS had a combination of breast milk and formula until he was about 7 months and then I used formula only. I'm going to try and make it longer this time.
    Vaccinations: yes (although we do delay...I only do one at a time and it takes longer)
    Pro life/ pro choice- I am pretty firmly pro choice. I would have a hard time terminating a pregnancy, but I've never been in the situation to have to choose, so it's hard for me to say.

  • Circumcision: yes

    Breastfeeding: I'll try but I want to be kinder to myself this time. Last time it didn't go well at all, and I really beat myself up about it. I ended up pumping and feeling really guilty that we just couldn't get the hang of it. It became a huge sense of stress and anxiety for me. I'm hoping it goes better this time around.

    Vaccinating: yes

    Pro-life/Pro-choice: choice. I don't think I could ever do it and I guess I am pro-life for myself, but it's not my place to judge anyone for such a personal decision. Women should have the choice and a safe place to go if they need.

  • Letting DH make that call.

    Yes, looking forward to trying.

    Yes

    Pro-choice, respect the choice with many lives in the balance and make sure things are as safe as possible for those who do choose. I feel blessed I've never had to make the choice myself. No judgement, only love and support.

  • Circumcision: Left this decision up to Dh, he said yes, so DS is.

    Breastfeeding: Most definitely

    Vaccinating: Yes

    Pro-life/Pro-choice: Both for all reasons listed above. I would never choose abortion for myself, and feel that in most circumstances pro-life is the best option, but I feel that it is important for the proper medical care to be available, as well as I don't feel that it is not my place to judge. However, I do feel strongly that abortions should not and do not = birth control.

  • Circumcision: Yes (DS is)

    Breastfeeding: I will try my best. I only made it a month with DS.

    Vaccinating: Yep

    Pro-life/Pro-choice: Pro choice

    My H's niece (who is his age) has had 6 abortions. She uses them for birth control because (and I quote), "I don't want to take a pill every day and condoms are not as fun." This is where I get a bit judgy. She has 4 children and all but 1 have been taken away from her.

    I've struggled with this with my clients. I really agree with PP, we need a lot more education on family planning.

  • Circumcision: no

    Breastfeeding: will

    Vaccinating: will

    Pro-life/Pro-choice: pro-life FOR me, but do not judge people....

    Sounds like there are other issues there, but in terms of birth control an IUD might be a good option for her. They used to be pretty expensive (like $400 and up) to get but now are covered 100% by insurance so it would be free.
