I am pro-choice, not pro-abortion. I don't want women to have abortions. I don't think anyone, save the sickest, most twisted and perverse among us, wants women to have abortions. But neither do we want women to bear the babies of rapists or those who perpetrate acts of incest. Nor do we want babies born to women who don't want them and would abuse them if they had them. (Not everyone can or will "step up.")
We don't want to find dead babies in trashcans. We don't want children having children, regardless of the reason. We don't want botched self-abortions or Mexican abortions or abortions done by some back alley quack -- too many women have died from a lack of access to safe, legal abortion. Many of us believe that "right to life" extends to the mother. We trust that most women know how to make the best decisions for themselves and their lives.
This is not something anyone takes lightly. Stories from women who have made the hard choice to have an abortion tell of the struggle they went through to reach their decision. Not that I'm saying it never happens, but I have never heard of a single person saying that the decision was on par with what to have for lunch or which pair of jeans to buy. I don't think that I, personally, could ever do it. . . But I will defend the rights of other women to make that choice.
Mister_Man Why I appreciate your enthusiasm, I did not need a media like interpretation of what the poll meant. I gave my answer and it was quite concise. Abortion is a non-debatable topic if you want to be realistic. If you are "against" it, then as a "christian" you should respect the woman having one's suffering and offer aide in her time of a terrible crucible, not judge. If you are a conservative, you should think about the economic viability of all the children being born to poor unhealthy conditions that would cost the taxpayer millions, if you are a Republican , you should not be in the decision at all because you are the party of smaller government and liberty, so but out. There you have it a non debatable, non issue especially for those of penis inflicted.
The reason I am against abortion is due to it killing that unborn baby. Plus I believe that just shouldn't be messed with, I think that it can easily be abused. Like in china and some people here killing the baby just because they find out it is a girl, or a boy. Or better yet they do the act, they can take care of the baby. Yet they still choose abortion. Now I do understand why some do it, heck I am for it ina case of rape, or teen pregnancy.
@Ramm - you giving your opinion on the topic and saying how you want other people to act doesn't make it a "non-debate." And especially saying men don't have a say because they don't experience pregnancy is just ridiculous. I guess you're not allowed to have a say in circumcision because you're a female. Or you don't have a say in... Ah well I see your account has been banned already or you've given up. So never mind.
