    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...

    Being Pro Choice doesn't necessarily mean

    that you're all for abortions, it just means that you think a women should have the right to make her own decisions concerning her body. I personally would never get an abortion, but do I think that an old crusty white guy should tell a woman what she can or can't do with her...

    Pregnancy is hard, uncomfortable,

    painful, stressful, emotional, exhausting and often vomit-inducing. I couldn't imagine what it would be like to go through the pain and sickness not out of joy, but because you had to. Because someone else wanted you to and that persons wants and opinions matter more to the...

    The rudeness and contradictory nature of

    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...

    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.

    There is literally no other situation

    where a person is required to protect someone else’s life at the cost of their own life or health. If “innocent human life” is worth every price, then why is it the foetus - a bundle of cells with no thought, no feeling, possibly not even a brain - that deserves every...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I see many pro lifers relating abortion to

    feminism. I see many of them relating pro choice to feminism. I know all too well both of them don't relate since abortion occurred way before roe vs. wade (and if I look deeper I bet I could find evidence from way back 1800s) http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/tgr/06/1/gr060108...

    HOW TO END ABORTION 1) Easier access to

    If abortion becomes illegal then it should also
