    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.

    Does anyone think it is strange

    that pro life people bvmb abortion clinics and now I just got a death threat by a pro lifer over email? Does anyone see the stereotypical irony here? Anyone?

    I think a lot of men

    who say they are pro-life say so NOT because they want to save the lives of the unborn, but because the idea of sexually active women who have reproductive rights is terrifying to them. These women won't settle for being barefoot and pregnant any longer.

    It's really sad that Soniador trolls this forum

    calling women murderers for aborting. I'm very disappointed that a grown man is trying to shame and blame women and becomes upset when he or other pro-lifers are called judgmental for this. Hypocracy if I ever heard it! So Soniador, stop shaming women and go back to the pro life...

    I shall put it bluntly

    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.

    The difference between a baby

    and an embryo: An embryo has no feelings, thoughts, memories, hopes and dreams. It is not a human but a bundle of cells with absolutely no heartbeat or brain activity. There's no brain activity in a pack of cells. Yes, cell activity, but not what makes a person truly precious...

    I know I already wrote a story about this,

    but my sister asked me today what my view on abortion was. I told her I was pro-choice, and she didn't really know her view. So, I figured I could write another story, since my way of thinking always changes and I'd never write the same exact thing twice. So, here are my...

    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.

    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...

    I read a post on Facebook about a mother being

    pregnant with triplets. And the only way to save her life and two of her babies, was to abort one. She chose the abortion. A lot of the comments of this post were Catholics saying that the right decision would have been to give it to God. My response to that is, "she made the...

    Do people against abortion just ignore

    My grandmother had 10 children.

    Due to birth control not available in her country for a few more years, she did a self-induced abortion (for her 10th pregnancy). She told my mom that she remembers bleeding and the possibly seeing the fetus in the toilet. She failed to abort the 11th pregnancy and luckily...

    Thank you for caring more about a fertilized

    egg in my uterus than about me as a human being. Thank you for wanting to have more of a say in what I do with my body than I do. Thank you for thinking that since I'm a woman, I should be obligated to give birth no matter the circumstance.

    Abortions aren't murdering babies.

    Fetuses are not babies. Eggs are bird fetuses, but nobody gives a **** about those. Why? Because they're not babies. Fetuses are not humans, that's why we call them fetuses. I used to think abortion was murder too, because I was ******* stupid. Educate yourselves before you go...

    If I ever personally got pregnant at this time

    in my life, abortion wouldn't necessarily be the right choice for me, but if another woman feels that an abortion is right for her, who am I to judge? I say it's your body, do whatever you want with it, it's none of my business nor anyone else's.

    HOW TO END ABORTION 1) Easier access to
