    It kind of makes me sick

    that there are so many people (primarily men, from what I have seen) trying to make abortion illegal, because - newsflash - abortion is never going to end. Even if it's illegal, if a woman really wants one, she'll find a way, and that way is going to be far more dangerous than...

    Deceptive CPC's (Part One) There are 4,

    000 CPC's (Crises Pregnancy Centers) compared to actual abortion clinics which is somewhere around 800. So there is a good chance of a woman having no idea to what she has just walked into when it comes to these CPC's. They also masquerade under various different aliases and do...

    In light of Creoleitalianwoman's post,

    I'd like to spend a minute talking about the fake abortion clinics. They are called crisis pregnancy centers run by religious (aka Christian) groups with only one agenda: to persuade women from aborting. They place these clinics next to abortion clinics in the hopes that women...

    "If you don't want children,

    Its rumored that republicans first order of

    business is an abortion ban. I don't know why they think bans on abortion is going to help things, it will make it far worse. A ban on abortion wont stop abortion so they don't care anything for women's rights.

    that having sex, conceiving, aborting or giving birth to a child is all in women's hand. Women do not always have control over these things. Still people tend to blame it all on women. "Why did you have sex in the first place?" is one of their brightest argument. Considering...

    Leave it alone. No changes need to be made.

    Abortions should always stay legal. And it should always be the woman's choice. And she should always have the final say in it. The only ones that should know about are that woman's doctor(s) and depending on the relationship, the father. Due to circumstances, there shouldn't...

    42 years since abortions became legal.
