    Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car

    accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a...

    The difference between a baby

    and an embryo: An embryo has no feelings, thoughts, memories, hopes and dreams. It is not a human but a bundle of cells with absolutely no heartbeat or brain activity. There's no brain activity in a pack of cells. Yes, cell activity, but not what makes a person truly precious...

    If I ever personally got pregnant at this time

    in my life, abortion wouldn't necessarily be the right choice for me, but if another woman feels that an abortion is right for her, who am I to judge? I say it's your body, do whatever you want with it, it's none of my business nor anyone else's.

    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.

    A pro life person on my Facebook posted an

    Do people against abortion just ignore

    pregnant with triplets. And the only way to save her life and two of her babies, was to abort one. She chose the abortion. A lot of the comments of this post were Catholics saying that the right decision would have been to give it to God. My response to that is, "she made the...

    Being pro choice is about human rights.

    Whether you agree or disagree with abortion is irrelevant. Regardless of your own personal beliefs, you are not entitled to force other people to follow your moral rules. Abortion is a medical procedure. Everyone has the right to accessible and safe health care.

    who say they are pro-life say so NOT because they want to save the lives of the unborn, but because the idea of sexually active women who have reproductive rights is terrifying to them. These women won't settle for being barefoot and pregnant any longer.
