Illusion of control

A Facebook friend found this defense of abortion.
An interesting read, and the author saves her story for last - she had a child right after she decided to abort a child that appeared to be unhealthy.
Most of her points focus on control - you can't always depend on birth control, prosperity comes from having control of pregnancy timing, and you need to be healthy before becoming pregnant.
People like to think they have control.
Do they really?
You can plan and prepare, and still bad things happen.
You can also overprepare, if you remember the opening scenes of Idiocracy.
In trying to maintain control, you can miss out on the unexpected surprises in life.
