I did more reading of the various posts with your handle, and would like to comment on "Fail."
I am a Christian and a feminist. I support a pregnant woman's right to do whatever she decides is in the best interest of herself and any children she might conceive, whether that means elective abortion or carrying the child to term.
I lost more than one child through spontaneous abortion. After a while, I decided that the best thing I could do for myself was quit getting pregnant. Abortion is a very, very difficult thing to go through.
Sin used to be one of my trigger words. What that word means to me now is 'death.' I cannot deny that death is part of life and that I am compelled by my own nature to behave in ways and make choices that lead to death. It is not my fault that I am a human being born into a fallen world where death is the inevitable outcome of all my striving. It is what it is, and I accept the reality of death (sin) without blame or condemnation.
I don't know what country you're from, but it occurred to me that you may be interested in a famous address called Solitude of the Self by Elizabeth Cady Stanton:
"The isolation of every human soul and the necessity of self-dependence must give each individual the right to choose his own surroundings. The strongest reason for giving woman all the opportunities for higher education, for the full development of her faculties, her forces of mind and body; for giving her the most enlarged freedom of thought and action; a complete emancipation from all forms of bondage, of custom, dependence, superstition; from all the crippling influences of fear - is the solitude and personal responsibility of her own individual life."
