    Why is there a greater concern

    for a unborn fetus, than for the thousands and thousands of children without a home, going hungry, no family, no one to love them, no sense of hope, no chances. What about the children being abused, the children being sold into human trafficking. Why do we completely ignore...

    If you are against abortion,

    then why are you in this group? I find it interesting that they come to our group. But the moment you come into their's it's not okay. I rarely go into the anti abortion groups. Mainly because I'm not anti abortion. If people can't come here and be respectful, let alone, talk...

    They silence women. I find it hard to believe

    that a woman would tell somebody that is against abortions, that she had one. Because anti choicers silence women. When a woman has an abortion, she is afraid to tell anybody about it, due to the fact that she's worried about being judged. "Abortions can be a traumatic...

    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...

    Saying abortions are necessarily unsafe without

    taking any other factors in is intellectually dishonest. There is a difference between illegal and legal. Legal abortion we can control, illegal operators of abortion clinics we cannot control. Therefore the two are separated and different. To look at numbers you also have to...

    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.

    I found a bunch of articles about how men

    should have the right to determine whether women can have an abortion or not because they helped make the kid. I'm sorry but until you have to carry a fetus for nine months and then either have it cut out of you or birth it from a tiny hole in your body you can **** off. Yes...
