    The only reason I am putting this out there is

    because there is a lot of pro life men and women who come into this group that always implies it is always the woman's choice and men have no say. In part that is true, a lot of pro choice women AND men feel that it is the woman's choice, but that still leaves things open to...

    I wonder if there's a bumper sticker

    or a r shirt out there that says, "I am pro choice. Deal with it". I don't know why I thought of that. But I would get one.

    "You have to own up to the responsibility of

    having sex." Please tell me how me deciding that I would be a terrible mother with my mental illness, financial strain, and inability to rely on anyone as a form of support means I am not owning up to responsibility. Is forcing someone to have an unwanted infant the right way of...

    Honestly, it is a clump of cells usually,

    if you get it aborted before 10 weeks, there isn't even a nervous system for it to feel pain. People should stop thinking it has human life because, while it has the potential to become human, it must remain in the mother for 9 months. Pregnancy and births come with all sorts of...

    There's a difference between a fetus

    and a baby and a child. Why, for the love of all things wonderful, DO PEOPLE KEEP MISTAKING THESE? You don't look any smarter or more capable of expressing your "opinion" when you use these completely different stages in human life as if they are the same. A child is not a baby...

    Don't want me to have sex?

    Want me to become sterile? Sure, as soon as you remove the nerves from your genitals. You don't need them for procreation.

    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.

    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...

    Why is there a greater concern

    who was emotionally abusive and he got me pregnant. When I told him he accused me of cheating on him and said he would have nothing to do with the child. Distraught, I called my stepmom, whom I'm very close with, for advice and she confided in me that she herself had an abortion...

    because 9/10 it's probably my own fault but I'm not gonna judge people who do decide to get an abortion because what purpose does it serve. At the end of the day people are going to do what they want to do anyway and they're probably already going through a hard time as it is so...

    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.

    should have the right to determine whether women can have an abortion or not because they helped make the kid. I'm sorry but until you have to carry a fetus for nine months and then either have it cut out of you or birth it from a tiny hole in your body you can **** off. Yes...

    HOW TO END ABORTION 1) Easier access to
