    "When does life begin"?

    .... Is the million dollar question, I've heard a lot. And as you know, I can respect both ends of the coin. Since I'm my opinion, there isn't really a right or wrong here. I do not believe that "where life begins", is based on whether you are pro choice or pro life. Pro choice...

    That moment when a pro-lifer comments a whole

    My favorite argument pro lifers have is "well

    the heart beats at 8 weeks so the "baby" is alive!" If you bothered to open a biology book you'd know that the heart beating is literally a byproduct of the heart forming. It doesn't pump blood, pump oxygen, nor do any other function. I mean, do you consider someone who's brain...

    I am very pro choice.

    But I have an issue with my boyfriend. Since we're sexually active, we have to think about what would happen if I were to get pregnant. He would want an abortion while I would not want one. How would I settle this with him?

    Religious groups try

    so hard to make a woman feel bad for having sex and making a mistake. "If you're going to make the choice to have sex, you should be responsible for the consequences". A baby is a consequence, and women should have a choice about how they deal with their consequence. Instead of...

    I am pro choice not pro abortion!

    The phrase pro abortion angers me some because no woman wants to have or plans on having an abortion. Now I have never been put in that situation before so I cannot judge but even if you have you don't have the right to tell a woman what to do with her body. I believe this a...

    It's a terrifying thought

    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.

    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.

    Saying someone can't have an abortion

    because you don't believe that is right is like saying no one can take a bath because you don't want to, or no one can receive cancer treatment because you won't. Ridiculous.

    I think some males on here have w0mb envy.

    Just a little bit. We have a superpower and I can understand how that would be overwhelming for some anti choice females as well as males on here. Notice I don't say all males but to the one's in this group there seems to be a lot of shaming lately.

    No one should decide this

    but girls themselves. Are the ppl against it going to have the babies for them? Are they going to make up their lost work? Are they going to quit school and get a minimum wage job, too? Nope. And girls have the right to choose what they do with their body.

    "Women should have a choice

    but not use it as birth control."Abortion is not used as a form of birth control. First and foremost, that statement is assuming that it is uncomplicated to get an abortion. In reality, the price of abortion is in the range of $451 dollars in the first trimester but can cost...

    Anti-choice activists are very saddening.
