I don't have kids and it gets lonelier every passing year. When I was a young man, my gf got pregnant and had an abortion. I supported it at the time due to the perceived horror of being ostracized by society. Seems selfish now.
Sometimes I wonder what that fetus might have given me. A family. OTOH, I cast it aside by saying the world doesn't need more people, so, aborting a young fetus isn't so bad. Yet, that doesn't seem very righteous either -- killing a fetus. I also sometimes think that, as a man, I and the government shouldn't have the right to mandate what a woman has to do with her body/life.
I come from a religious upbringing, so, that shapes my thinking even today, decades later.
How do you internalize abortion being an okay thing? I bet somebody has written a book or good article about this.
