    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...

    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...

    You can be pro choice

    and against homosexuality.... If you knew that your baby would be born gay, would you abort it? Or wait until after it is born, to abuse and abandon it?

    If abortion is murder,

    then oral sex is cannibalism, miscarriage is manslaughter, and planting an acorn and then digging it back up is chopping down a tree. Doesn't really make much sense when put into perspective, now does it?

    Thank goodness I live in a state

    that protects Planned Parenthood and understands the important work that it does. More accurate, our politicians understand that it would be career suicide to try to defund Planned Parenthood. This is how it should be.
