    Ok I will address your points

    as I have time. Pain. All beings with nerves experience pain, but you aren't vegetarian or vegan. Your pro-life perspective is largely influenced by your religious beliefs. My pro-choice opinion is the same, except that I'm a Buddhist atheist. I believe we should do what we can...

    Sometimes the ignorance of pro-lifers makes me

    want to cry. Like, have you never fact checked anything in your life from a non-biased source? I desperately need you to educate yourself before you talk to me. It's a demand, not a request.

    No one asked to be born.

    "If you don't want a baby,

    then don't have sex".... Really? It's that easy? I wonder if the number of people who said this, ever tried to just not have sex. So what is marriage then? Because there are married couples that have sex and don't want children. Or they have sex, and already have children, but...

    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...

    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?

    I do believe Women Should have take more

    responsibility Instead of using abortion as an easy way out. But Still It's their choice and Women should be able to have the right to have the fetus removed. It's not like Humans are an endangered species like the Panda.
