    I appreciate many people

    who talk about this subject. Sexual education should not be a taboo sort of subject anymore for young people. With that educational background, it can lead to more responsible young adults who wish to be sexually active. But even if something were to come up unexpectedly, the...

    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.

    You know what I don't get?

    How Pro - Life people are so set on not killing a fetus because it did not "consent" to being aborted, and they think it's "killing" an "innocent life", meanwhile no one gives a damn about all the innocent lives of animals who are illegally hunted or trophy hunted. No one seems...

    Pregnancy is hard, uncomfortable,

    painful, stressful, emotional, exhausting and often vomit-inducing. I couldn't imagine what it would be like to go through the pain and sickness not out of joy, but because you had to. Because someone else wanted you to and that persons wants and opinions matter more to the...

    A woman choosing to have an abortion,

    because her pregnancy is life threatening, gives nobody to right to tell her what to do with her body. What if she has a family, with children? Should those children be without their mother, because a fetus, I guess comes first? All this talk about "choose life", if a woman is...

    How do pro lifers not understand

    that contraceptions are NOT 100% effective. They act like every women who get abortions had unprotected sex. So now that she's pregnant, she has to keep the fetus when she USED protection? And don't even say that it was fate or meant to be cause if the women chose to get an...

    Apparently Ted Cruz wants to defund Planned

    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's very simple. What a woman does to her body

    is nobody's business. That is why I am pro choice, and proud. If I decide that I need to have an abortion for whatever reason, it's my choice. If I choose to keep my pregnancy and have a baby, it's my choice. It doesn't matter what anybody else thinks. Only a woman knows what is...

    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.

    There are men who think it's unfair

    that women get more "say" in whether or not they want to abort. They think their want for a child is more important than a woman's want to abort. I just want to take a second to let these men understand what their asking, or demanding I should say. You want a woman to give up...
