I'm pro-choice. I don't want to start a debate or a fight, I just want to learn a little bit about the pro-life point of view. My main question is; how are you pro-life and pro- womens rights?
Like I said, I am not trying to start a fight or debate. I just want to see why people feel the way they do on the other side of the fence.
I am pro-life. As others have stated,I believe that everyone has a right to live.Just because you are pregnant with an unwanted child,does not make you God to decide another human being should die for your convenience.I do agree with the lady who said the women's movement has gone too far.I agree that we should ALL be treated equally.The right to decide if we want to be pregnant is completely different, than thinking you have the right to kill another life because it's inside you. My husband's mother was about to have an abortion when she was pregnant with him.She actually went into the clinic but decided against having the abortion when she was speaking to one of the counselors.The counselor had told her that it seemed as if she was finding reasons for not having the abortion.I'm so glad she didn't do it!That was 24 years ago and he is the most wonderful man and father!

I WAS pro-choice as a teen. Then at 21 I got pregnant for the first time and started tracking my baby's development. Heart beat at 21 days post fertilization. Measurable brain waves at 40 days. and I realized how wrong it is that it is legal to murder that child for no reason at all. Now there are reasons that are acceptable and frankly I'm not in favor of legally outlawing all abortion. I don't want every miscarriage investigated as a possible homicide. But I do want to change the culture to one that respects and values a woman's ability to carry life and give birth. I don't see that now. Fertility is currently seen as an obstacle to pleasure and recreational sex and that is just wrong! Women should not be used and tossed aside in favor of the next conquest.
