    This seems like such a hypocritical title

    There are two types of abortion I do not

    I think the government should have less say in

    what we do, so yeah it should be an option, however as far as I'm concerned I would never get one! It goes against everything I believe in.

    Why Not?

    I'm anti-abortion so I won't have one. I'm pro choice because I won't tell other people what they should do.

    I dunno of anyone on the planet who thinks abortion is wonderful (except maybe my parents with me)... It's a hard descision for a woman to make. I don't believe it is my business to tell her what she can and can't do with her body.

    Either you support legal abortions and the woman's right to choose, or you don't. Pro choice means what it is, that you support a woman's right to choose abortion, adoption or parenting. I don't see how somebody can say they support women's rights to choose, but only in this...

    How can someone be anti-abortion

    yet pro choice? It makes no sense. Pro choice means supporting a woman's right to choose, and supporting that decision either way. If you're only supporting her choice on the condition that she decides not to terminate her pregnancy, you're pro life.
