    At first glance it appears

    as though the Statement " I'm Pro - choice and Anti - Abortion" Contradicts itself. Maybe to some it does - But not for me simply because I believe that there are several choices a woman can make. Before she chooses to the go down the route of choosing an Abortion. I know...

    I am making a bold and blatant move by stating from the get-go that I am NOT anti-abortion, and feel that this opinion is strongly justified by a personal experience with my closest friend.  It is in my belief that there are certain circumstances that completely justify abortion...

    Pregnancy Made Me Change My Mind

    I used to be pro-choice but then I got pregnant. In my spare time I look up what my baby should look like inside the womb depending on how many weeks I am. Its never long before abortion images pop up and show a picture of a fetus the same age as my baby being ripped to pieces...

    Pro and Anti, What?

    Let me try and explain. I'm all for a woman's right to choose, in reasonable circumstances. When she uses it as a consistent form of birth control, not considering any other method, that gets me so angry. Some forms of Polynesian Christianity allow this and prohibit...

    Women's Rights And Equality

    For those who are pro-life, it is not about taking away a woman's choice, it is about giving choice to the child. Everyone's body is their own, the child in the woman has a completely unique DNA separate from the mother's body; that child's body is his own. From conception there...

    That's the simplest way I can put it. I can't make any arguments about whether abortion is right or wrong, because questions like those seem to depend mostly on what the agreement is. Also, I can't say that all abortion is bad, because I can think of theoretical situations where...

    ProLife/ProChoice - Both Right But Not Quite
