    Murder is killing a human.

    Abortion does not kill humans. It simply prevents them from living in the first place, like condoms. Denying them life can easily be seen as morally wrong by many people, but it isn't murder. The baby-to-be is not actually alive until the mind starts working, which is usually...

    While they are out there screaming "murderer",

    women are still going to the abortion clinics, terminating their pregnancies. Abortion is not murder because it is legal. You can't murder something that you can remove from your body, legally. It is a woman's body, it is her choice.

    I have an update to my story.

    My boyfriend and I have decided that the two hour trip is worth it! After I find out if I'm pregnant or not I can go to PP. I called them today and I would be able to go in next week for my first visit, if I'm pregnant. It takes 2-3 visits to have the abortion. Now usually PP...

    It gets old, doesn't it?

    I get sick and tired of people saying that it's murder, when the definition of murder is to unlawfully kill a human being. If abortion is legal, then how is it murder? That makes no sense. To say that it's murder, is nothing more than just a person's personal belief. I respect...

    At the end of the day

    if you're not going to be living her life, birthing the child or paying her bills you have no place to judge her. You don't like when people judge you so why judge them?

    Why do we actually bother wasting our time on

    pro-birthers? At the end of the day, all they are is gas and wind. They have no power over women and their choices, in a country where abortion is legalised. They can protest and whine like btches, but they can't stop you from making that choice. All they are are mouthpieces.

    Freakn' Christians!

    It's ironic how the christian bible bashers whom preach abstinence to rowdy teens are against abortion. Abortion is just a symptom of the lack of contraceptives. And if abortion is murder then who's to say that every time I jerk off I'm not killing millions of possible humans? I...

    It's so silly. Whether

    or not you think abortion is murder, the truth is this is a personal decision between a woman and possibly her partner. It doesn't affect you, she's doing what is best for herself/her family. I don't even understand why people judge and say it's okay when they were raped/their...

    Control And A Cash Cow

    Claiming that abortion is murder is just to assert control over women and their choices. I'm certain that many who say that have had one themselves. The "Pro life" movement is using abortion as a means to raise a lot of money. That is one topic that conservatives raise that...

    So I talked to my boyfriend about my worries

    and our options. He agreed with me. We'll save $200 in case. $200 once is simply easier than $100 a month. I wish it was easier and we didn't have to think about this. It's like "Why did we even get the tubal?"

    Abortion is not murder.

    You're not killing anything. You're killing a combination of cells that act as a parasite inside you. If you commit abortion in the first/second trimester, you're fine to go. All those pro-lifers need to stop being complete f*cking morons and understand that a fertilised two...

    I had an abortion in March.

    The people at the clinic were nice, the drip felt good, I enjoyed how friendly those in the operating theatre were, and drugged sleep was amazing. Am I supposed to feel guilt? Because I do not. Why should I? There are too many humans already.

    If you force a woman to give birth this is what

    will happen. She will do reckless thinks, like drink or take drugs, because she doesn't care about the fetus. She won't waste time seeing a doctor or taking vitamins because she doesn't care. She will give birth and toss the child into an uncaring and over burdened system where...

    mind your own ******* business.

    . Maybe the girl is too young and her body isn't developed enough to handle giving birth. It could kill them. or they have a great future and a baby would get in the way of that. Or maybe they don't have the money or a place to stay to give the child a good life.

    It annoys me when people say "murder" to

    describe abortion. Using "murder," we already run into some problems. Murder means, "the unlawful act of killing a human being." The first problem is that abortion is legal. Therefore, murder cannot be used since it is "the unlawful act." Second, it's to even debate that a fetus...

    If a woman is raped and chooses to have an

    Abortion is not murder.

    If women are getting their abortions done at a clinic, where it's safe, that doesn't make it illegal. And there's a cut off for when they stop being legal, which is around 20 weeks. So nobody's murdering babies. Nobody's killing children. And nobody is unlawfully killing human...
