    Someone posted "Pro-choice should be: do I

    choose to keep and raise this baby or do I choose to give it up for adoption" and I just wanted to punch them. Being pro-choice does not include restrictions or limitations. It doesn't include our personal feeling or thoughts or beliefs. It's about understanding that each woman...

    I am pro choice because a baby should never be

    a punishment. I'm pro choice because people are sexual beings and should not be denied one of the most intimate, human experiences we can have. I am pro choice because theology should never dictate my or any other woman's biology. I am pro choice because women deserve to have...

    I may be a guy, but I'm not stupid enough to

    think that guys should decide what women do with their bodies. Pro-life guys are insane - then again, so are all pro-lifers. These people say that a baby is what women get for opening their legs, and in the next second they'll say that a baby caused by rape is a blessing. Look...

    My boyfriend and I just watched a video titled

    "We asked children how they felt about abortion and their answers shocked us." We were weary but decided to watch it. My boyfriend has a bachelors in Psychology so whenever he sees a study or survey done, he sees if they follow certain rules that is set up for such things. This...

    Nothing irritates me more

    than people who marginalize how strenuous pregnancy is. Mentally, emotionally, and physically, pregnancy is absolutely horrible. It’s exhausting and most pregnancies have some level of problem, from high blood pressure, morning sickness, muscle cramps, swelling to necessary...

    I also am pro breastfeeding in public.

    There's a lot of talk on Facebook about mothers breastfeeding their babies in public and the results they get from strangers. Plenty of cruel comments from these mothers, that are only doing what is best for the babies. There was one about mothers being forced to breastfeed...

    Nobody likes abortion.

    Nobody wants to see it happen. But making abortion illegal is not the best way to decrease the rate of abortion!

    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...

    HOW TO END ABORTION 1) Easier access to

    contraceptives 2) More sex education with an unbiased outlook. NOT BY HARASSING WOMEN OUTSIDE CLINICS AND CALLING THEM NAMES.

    There are men who think it's unfair

    A woman must have autonomy over her own body.

    A woman must also be sensible in her habits, her responsibilities are many. We cannot play with our bodies when other life is included.
