    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...

    Abortion is the only medical treatment

    that people think it's ok to deny based on how the patient got into that situation. It's like; Climbed a tree, fell out and broke your arm? Don't worry, we'll put a cast on for you. Smoked your whole life, got lung cancer, need chemo? Awesome we'll start you on that right away...

    I don't I've ever heard a more flawed pro-life

    argument that "if Mary had gotten as abortion the world as we know it wouldn't exist" just consider this, god asked Mary for permission. He made sure Mary was okay with getting pregnant. Your god, the one that's done a lot of ****** up ****, cares more about the rights of others...

    I wish more people would understand

    that just because I'm pro choice doesn't mean I think abortion would ever be right for me. I personally just feel women should have the right to choose.

    "If you have sex and get pregnant,

    be responsible. Don't murder your unborn baby".... Okay, first of all, abortion is NOT murder. Secondly, having an abortion after an unwanted or unexpected pregnancy, for whatever the reason, is being responsible. How many so called moms out there, abusing and neglecting their...

    So apparently some on the right believe this is

    called pro murder. Murder is malicious intent to kill. We dont love killing. I dont think life should be suffering or unfair. Have we forgot the woman has the baby, not the man? Its her choice.

    that there are so many people (primarily men, from what I have seen) trying to make abortion illegal, because - newsflash - abortion is never going to end. Even if it's illegal, if a woman really wants one, she'll find a way, and that way is going to be far more dangerous than...

    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.

    Making someone keep their fetus (instead of

    I sometimes wonder if pro lifers ever think of

    the situation the woman is in when she is given the choice to keep or abort. I've never been pregnant but I can imagine her confused, scared, and even devastated. Women who have aborted are not heartless. They have given it much thought; their futures, money issues, if they're...

    ... How is it not? Lol... The woman is having this procedure done by professionals, whether that is medical or surgical. She can't just walk into the clinic saying, "I need to get an abortion". There has to be many tests before the termination. That includes, blood tests, urine...

    A woman must have autonomy over her own body.

    A woman must also be sensible in her habits, her responsibilities are many. We cannot play with our bodies when other life is included.
