    It's funny how some of the men,

    that come here, say they know what it's like to be pregnant. Um really? Are you kidding me? Is this the new anti abortion argument here? Lol... How can a man possibly know what a woman goes thru while she's pregnant? I don't think they can even imagine. No words can describe the...

    I Used to Be Pro-life

    A woman's body is a woman's body.

    Her womb needs protection as does her life. When contraception fails there needs still to be choice.

    Human beings are undervalued by society only

    until something like abortion or euthanasia is proposed, and it seems very hypocritical. For whatever reason a woman should have choice. Only in a marriage should her partner have a say, I feel.

    I find many pro lifers very hypocritical.

    They are against a woman's right to have an abortion but at the same time many of them are against the use of contraceptives. So they don't want women to have the option of safe sex to prevent pregnancy and they don't want a woman to have the choice to terminate that pregnancy...

    I firmly believe in the "no uterus,

    other than they just want to control women. They will never carry a child or know what that's like. Why do men care so much what women do sexually and with their own bodies?

    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.

    I've come to a realization about the pro-life,

    pro-choice debate. It's a very complex topic but with simple answers. Either you're pro-choice and recognize that it's up to the woman to decide what choice best fits her or you think your personal beliefs trumps someone's ability to do what they want with their own body.

    There is this concept called body autonomy.
