Every person has the right to make decisions about their body, well-being, family and future.
When someone’s choices make you uncomfortable, ask yourself why. Examine the biases that may be driving your reaction and consider the circumstances that make their life different from yours. Listen to their reasoning.
It’s often hard to understand a choice that you’ve never had to make. Take it upon yourself to learn and think critically about the situations of others.
