Is it wise or foolish to know the reason why, before or after a decision?

In a Chicago Tribune Quotable Article on Sunday April 9,2017, this quote was published.

“When a woman has made a decision to end a pregnancy, she needs high-quality health care, not an interrogation.”

Lourdes Rivera, senior vice President at the center for Reproductive Rights, on an Arkansas Law that requires health care providers to investigate the reasons a woman is getting an abortion.

King Solomon

A Time for All Events in Life (Ecclesiastes 3:1-4)

3:1 For everything there is an appointed time, and an appropriate time for every activity on earth:

3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to uproot what was planted;

3:3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.

In My Opinion

Empathy is a state of emotion of the mind and body after an action of a love, hate, or random uncontrollable occurrence in life.

Wisdom is a state of use of reason and common sense before and to hopefully prevent the need for empathy the mind and body in ones life.

You Decide

Health Care aside, when is the right time in life to attempt to reason why a woman has to make this decision?
