Is abortion wrong or right? Powerful politicians are constantly bashing women for being pro-choice. In my personal opinion a man should have no say in what happens to my womb or my vagina. As a women I understand the complex biology of a women's body and the emotional and physical connection a mother has to her unborn child. Some women do not want to have children for their own personal reasons and I believe that is for the best. If a women feels that termination is the best course of action for her and her baby then I believe that is the right thing to do.

To Pros entire statement

" The law is a powerful teacher. It says the father has no rights in the abortion decision. But the other side of the coin of "rights" is "responsibilities." The current state of the law regarding fathers and abortion can easily foster a sense of irresponsibility in young men.

Post-abortion counseling services are seeing an increasing number of men come forward, grieving their aborted children. Many of the same dynamics of post-abortion distress that we see in women are are also present in men. " http://www.priestsforlife.org...

Abortion is Murder

"Life starts at conception. This is the definition given in any respectable medical textbook. To declare a beginning of life at any point after the fusing of a wife"s egg and a husband"s contribution is irrational and an exercise in sophistical chicanery. Only machines such as clocks and cars come into existence part by part. Living beings come into existence all at once and gradually unfold their world of innate potential. A living human person begins to exist at the moment of conception, even though only as a cell. What is important is not the accident of size or weight but the essence " which is fully human. The unborn baby has a distinct, unchanging and unrepeatable genetic code, unique in all of history, from the moment of conception till death. Nothing is added except nutrition and oxygen.1" http://www.tfpstudentaction.org...

Abortion is not safe

"Compared with other medical procedures, the abortion industry is largely unregulated. Although there are no exact statistics for the number of women who die from botched procedures, LifeDynamics.com compiled a list of 347 women killed by legal abortions since 1973.2 Furthermore, the National Cancer Institute commissioned a study lead by Dr. Janet Daling, an abortion supporter, and her colleagues at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center which found a link between abortion and cancer: "among women who had been pregnant at least once, the risk of breast cancer in those who had experienced an induced abortion was 50% higher than among other women."

The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer reports: "28 out of 37 worldwide studies have independently linked induced abortion with breast cancer. Thirteen out of fifteen studies conducted on American women report increased risk. Seventeen studies are statistically significant, sixteen of which found increased risk. Most of the studies have been conducted by abortion supporters." 3" http://www.tfpstudentaction.org...

In Conclusion
Abortion creates citizens (males in this matter) to feel they do not need to be responsible. In medical terms, life begins at conception, thusly its murder. Abortion is unregulated and can cause death to the mother. It is unsafe.
