I Am Pro Choice

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 14,710 People

    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...

    How dare these prolifers,

    tell rape victims, that got pregnant and chose abortion, that their "baby" was a blessing! There is nothing beautiful about a woman being raped and pregnant because of it. People need to stop living in fairy tale land and start looking at reality.

    I wonder if pro lifers know

    that there are thousands of abortions happening right now and realize that their lives haven't been affected at all by the choice of someone else.

    This topic makes my ears steam

    and my eyes bleed. I can't fathom feeling any other way. Being Pro Life is being against the right for women to have a choice in what to do with their own body. Their body that is already developed, living, and also has a beating heart of its own. One that has been beating for...

    When most of the pro-lifers on this website are

    male... Eugh. ( This is not sexist at all. I really cannot believe I have to make this a side note.)

    There are men who think it's unfair

    that women get more "say" in whether or not they want to abort. They think their want for a child is more important than a woman's want to abort. I just want to take a second to let these men understand what their asking, or demanding I should say. You want a woman to give up...

    Has anyone else noticed

    that the huge majority of politicians who are "pro life" (tm) are men. What really gives them any authority over a woman's body? Patriarchal control? Women are people who are capable of making their own decisions.

    If the solution to abortion is adoption,

    why do adoptive parents need to adopt newborn babies?

    Pro lifers generally seem to have a really

    warped view as to what murder is. They justify their deity killing people as love for the followers but then they accuse others of murder to what is not even born yet. Twisted logic.

    It's amazing how some pro life Christians,

    like to judge women for having abortions. And when you call them out on it, they're response is, "I'm not judging you". So calling a woman that ended her pregnancy a "murderer" and "baby killer" is not judging? Or telling them, "you are going to burn in hell"? Looks like...

    Please understand that this is not a judgment I

    42 years since abortions became legal.

    Let us not move backwards. Because backwoods doesn't mean abortions will be eradicated. It means women will go back to harming their bodies, minds, and hearts worse than any legal abortion could.

    If abortion becomes illegal then it should also

    be illegal for a man to abandon his child. Because apparently it's a woman's duty to keep the child but not a man's duty to stay.
