Decent Essays
Once I became a mother my own free will has been compromised. I no longer get to do whatever I want to do. Before I had my daughter I was able to do whatever I wanted without having to worry about anything or anyone but myself. I got eat whatever I wanted, drink whatever I wanted, and hang out with whoever I wanted. That all changed once I found out I was pregnant.
About four years ago I found out I was pregnant. It was on unplanned pregnancy. At the time I was taking care of my uncle and aunt. My uncle is bed bound and needs to be rolled over and given a bath. I had to tell him the news. At first it was no big deal for me to clean with certain cleaners, but as the pregnancy continued I could not use chemicals like bleach. The bigger I got

Many of my friends did not have children and wanted to continue to party and do as they pleased. I had to stop for the well-being of my unborn baby. I ended up losing some friends over that.

I know that some woman that are pregnant do not understand the consequences of their actions when it comes to their unborn baby. I feel people should do research on the conflict. They should also ask themselves if what they are doing is right or wrong.
I believe people should follow the rules. If you don’t follow the rules you could get in trouble or cause harm to someone else. Some rules are made for the safety of one's self and others around. It is important to me that people follow rules. There are times when you need to break the rules to do the right things. Sometimes gong with ethics, or moral principles, is the right choice to
