Anna Frith’s concern for others pushes her to overcome her fears and help those who are less fortunate than herself. Merry Wickford is at risk of losing her family mine and so Anna is determined to retrieve the plate worth of lead. Her fear of mines is evident when she proclaims; ‘…the greatest effort was to keep my panic banked. I tried to manager my terrors.’ But for the sake of Mary she pushes these fears aside. Anna’s concern for others is again shown when she overcomes her fear when helping Mary Daniels give birth to her child.
By doing so, she taking away the fetus’ life because it would be so inconvenient for her in the short run of her life. It is because of her reasoning that Tammy should continue with the pregnancy. The moment she decided to keep the child is the moment she decided she was ready to raise that child, and terminating the pregnancy at that point would be an act of unjust killing, seeing as how greatly developed the fetus
As a women I cannot see myself living in a society like Gilead. I think having the right to say “yes” or “no” to having a child is something most valuable to women. No one has so much power that can tell a women when she can and cannot have a child, she also has the option to chose who she will conceive with and weather or not she will give the bay up for adoption. Forcefully taking a baby from it’s mother is a prime way to kill a women’s psychological foundation, while pregnant an women develops “mothers intuition” and with this love for her unborn baby grows. She feels a sense of closeness to a life she will not know for 9months, now imagine someone taking that love away from her.
I was confused, terrified, upset, and depressed” (Duval). All she could think about was how impossible it would be to raise a child. Harley’s choices of having a baby would be changed if it was in her control. Abortion was never in her mind, adoption was a possibility; but when she saw the first ultrasound of her baby, her mind changed about the pregnancy situation. It was her mistake, so she is going to take on her responsibility, and be a great parent for her unborn child.

Ismene responds by saying “But now I know what you meant; and I am here to join you, to take my share of punishment” (Scene 2, line 133). Ismene has changed her mind from being completely against Antigone’s idea to wanting to die with her sister.

She had asked in terror about what had occurred." In fact, the word "No" grew up with the young girl from the beginning when the man raped her. In the short story "The Answer Is No" there were two choices that the young girl had to choose from. The two choices that she had in the end were miserable and sad. Naguib Mahfouz wrote "she had either to accept marriage, or close the door for ever", which means either to live with a man who abused her innocence, took her virginity, and tried always to build a wall around her, or to accept to live alone without love.
To complicate things even more no one knew that she had already lost her virginity to an unknown perpetrator. Angela was still unsure about marrying Bayardo since she didn't love him but was set strait by her mother very quickly, in the novel it says: “Angela Vicario only dared hint at the inconvenience of a lack of love, but her mother demolished it with a single phrase: 'love can be learned too.

After actually doing this research I continue to be Pro-Choice, but with some limitations. I do believe that it is the right of a woman to decide matters over her own body. A woman should be able to have an abortion if the fetus develops with any diseases or disorders that are detrimental to quality of life. I do not think a woman should have a child that they do not want or can not support either be financially or emotionally, because the child is the one that will suffer. The child is most likely be mistreated, abused, and neglected at no fault of their own.
