    I like the trimester idea.

    For this entire post here, I'm going to stay off the Internet and go off of past experiences and discussions I've had about this. I don't remember everything I've been told, and I don't remember the third grade as a whole, but I'll keep my words straight forward and with sense...

    When people tell a woman to keep her "legs shut.

    .." ... Where the guy in all of this? Where is "the man should've kept it in his pants..." They're the exact same thing, really. They never focus on what the dude did! The blame is always on the woman. So uncool, and women already have so much pressure... The dude had the...

    I'm pro-choice because a non-sentient fetus

    will NEVER matter more than the sentient women carrying it. Also bodily autonomy is more important than any pseudo-moral bullshit that pro-lifers like to spout off.

    This topic makes my ears steam

    and my eyes bleed. I can't fathom feeling any other way. Being Pro Life is being against the right for women to have a choice in what to do with their own body. Their body that is already developed, living, and also has a beating heart of its own. One that has been beating for...

    Im against abortion 100%but I'm 100000%

    for letting people decide what they do and don't do with their own bodies. Personally i could never have one, but i would never stop someone from doing what they feel is right for them, and i would never judge them for the decisions they felt the need to make.

    Nobody likes abortion.

    Nobody wants to see it happen. But making abortion illegal is not the best way to decrease the rate of abortion!

    Having an abortion does not make you a bad

    person or mother. It is a choice. In most cases, it is the right one.

    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.

    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.

    If abortion becomes illegal then it should also

    be illegal for a man to abandon his child. Because apparently it's a woman's duty to keep the child but not a man's duty to stay.

    How dare these prolifers,

    tell rape victims, that got pregnant and chose abortion, that their "baby" was a blessing! There is nothing beautiful about a woman being raped and pregnant because of it. People need to stop living in fairy tale land and start looking at reality.

    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.
