The last time I was pregnant I was in the fourth trimester, and when I got pregnant, my partner and I went to an ultrasound to find out if we were expecting.
As it turns out, we weren’t.
We didn’t have the right information, so we had to take the baby home.
“You know what I like to do?
I just wait and see what comes up,” says Liza, 26, from the Philippines.
“I think I have an amazing intuition about what’s going to happen in the future.”
So, when I heard that the Supreme Court was hearing a case on a new law that would allow pregnant women to choose when they want to give birth, I knew I had to do something.
Liza has had two babies since she got pregnant with her first baby at the age of 24, and both were healthy.
Now, she’s pregnant with a third baby, but she wants to get it at home.
So, when she heard about the new law, she said she would make the decision about when she was ready to give up the baby.
“I feel like if I’m not happy with my pregnancy, I can’t be happy in my life,” she says.
So I started looking for information on the law online.
I went from the local newspapers to the state government website.
“I just kept on looking,” she said.
“And then I found a website.
And then I went back to the newspapers and asked my local newspaper what the law was and then I checked back.
And they said, ‘No.
I was like, ‘I’ve been looking for this law for ages, it’s illegal?'”
I started reading the law and I thought, ‘Oh my god, this is so wrong.’
“I’m not the only one who feels like this,” Liza said.
She also felt like there was a lot of misinformation about the law, so she asked my friend, who has a law degree, to help her with the research.
I also started to ask my wife what she thought.
She’s a lawyer and a Catholic, and she was also shocked.
She said, “I don’t even know what to say.
I don’t know what this law means.
It could mean the world to me.”
She also told me that she had a lot to think about because her husband was in his 30s and her daughter was 5 years old.
The next day, I drove to the Philippines to meet with the mother of the baby in the hospital.
She told me the law would allow her to decide whether she wanted to give it up or not.
She also said that it would make her feel better if she didn’t give birth.
But the law didn’t seem to be helping either.
As I got in the car, Liza and I began our search online, trying to find the most accurate information about the abortion law.
On the internet, I found information about what the laws say and how it would be enforced.
But there was no official document that detailed what the abortion laws would be, what it would mean, and how the abortion procedure would be performed.
I also couldn’t find any information on how the law will be enforced, so I contacted the state department of public health, which is responsible for enforcing the abortion rules in the Philippines, but it wasn’t very helpful.
Eventually, I decided to take matters into my own hands.
I contacted Liza’s local public health office and asked her to help me.
She called me up, and I said, “Please come back when I finish the paperwork.”
Liza’s husband came home and the baby was delivered.
Lizzy and I are happy with the baby, and now we are excited to give her up for adoption.
