I Am Pro Choice

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 15,706 People

    I am pro choice for the following reasons: 1.

    ) having human DNA does not make you a full person. a fetus only a couple weeks into a pregnancy is not a baby. its a bunch of organized cells with the potential to become a baby. 2.) everyone has the right to decide what to do with his or her body. 3.) I think if you're not...

    I think you should decide

    if you want an abortion or not. But really only writhing the very first few weeks... I mean I have protected sex 95% of the time. (I know it should be 100%! 😁) but if I were to be pregnant, as much as I would love having a child someday, now is not the time. I'm college and...

    My boyfriend and I just watched a video titled

    "We asked children how they felt about abortion and their answers shocked us." We were weary but decided to watch it. My boyfriend has a bachelors in Psychology so whenever he sees a study or survey done, he sees if they follow certain rules that is set up for such things. This...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    "If you don't want a baby,

    then don't have sex".... Really? It's that easy? I wonder if the number of people who said this, ever tried to just not have sex. So what is marriage then? Because there are married couples that have sex and don't want children. Or they have sex, and already have children, but...

    Someone posted "Pro-choice should be: do I

    choose to keep and raise this baby or do I choose to give it up for adoption" and I just wanted to punch them. Being pro-choice does not include restrictions or limitations. It doesn't include our personal feeling or thoughts or beliefs. It's about understanding that each woman...

    Nobody likes abortion.

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

    It kind of makes me sick

    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 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.

    taking any other factors in is intellectually dishonest. There is a difference between illegal and legal. Legal abortion we can control, illegal operators of abortion clinics we cannot control. Therefore the two are separated and different. To look at numbers you also have to...
