    Sick & Tired of Pro-choicers Bitching

    Abortion takes the life of a developing human.  If you don't like that... then don't support abortion!  I get so sick and tired of Pro-choicers complaining that anti-abortion people "bother" them with the "gruesome" details of abortion... uhh... then...

    Abortion Is Not Murder

    You talk to me about truth. And me being honest with myself on the matter. I do not believe that women who have abortions are murderers. A fetus is not yet a human being but a developing human being. To murder means to kill a human being. It is all about what you believe. If a...

    So, so much. Even if it was murder,

    I'd still be in support of it because no one and nothing should be permitted the use of someone's body against their consent.

    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...

    Christians And Abortion

    I am a former pro-life Christian. Though I never believed abortion was murder, I was against it because I felt like the Bible spoke against it. But when I started studying the issue after I left Christianity, I realized that the Bible did not say anything about abortion. This and...

    "There’s a concept called bodily autonomy. It’s considered a human right. Bodily autonomy means a person has control over who or what uses their body, for what, and for how long. It’s why you can’t be forced to donate blood, tissue, or organs. Even if you’re dead. Even...

    Abortion does not mean murder.

    Women that have abortions are not murderers. An abortion is a choice. It is a medical procedure. A difficult choice to make. You honestly think that calling women murderers, is going to make things any better? Especially for those women that made this hard decision, and are...

    Abortion is not murder.

    between an «embryo», a «foetus» and a «child». An embryo is a simple set of diploid-eukaryote cells in its earliest stage of development, while a foetus is a developing human being that can't think for itself and acts as a parasite inside the womb of a woman, whereas a...

    Life

    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.

    is to lawfully kill a human being. An abortion, by definition is to end a pregnancy by removing the fetus or embryo. Abortion is a medical procedure. They are legal until the 20-24 week. After that, terminations are murder, by law. Many women have abortions early pregnancy...

    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 honestly think we are all responsible

    for our own decisions and to me, abortion is wrong no matter what stage the embryo is in. You took the risk and you should deal with it. If you dont want the child, give it up for adoption after it being born.

    that decision is the woman having the abortion. Therefore nobody else deserves the right to butt in and start throwing around their beliefs. It would be illegal surely if it was murder.
