I know a lot of people view abortion as murder. Maybe it's just me, but I don't necessarily see it that way; let me explain why. Yes I know the embryo has a heartbeat but that doesn't mean that it's brain is developed enough to understand what is going on, so it doesn't realize that it's being "killed," or even that anything is wrong or hindering it's growth. The reason I don't see it as "murder" is because it hasn't experienced life yet, it knows no difference between life and death. I understand that you are terminating what COULD become a living, conscious being and I guess maybe that's the part people get so upset about?
I know people will argue that I don't know whether a 10-week-old embryo has conscious awareness, but common sense & science tells me it hasn't developed that stage cognitive ability yet...I'm just curious as to what everyone's opinion is?
Also, Pro-choicers, I'm interested to know why you are pro-choice?

IMO~ Abortion is knowing making the choice to end the development of a young life. If people can live with the decision to end the development of a life after they made the choice to engage in the activity that creates a life (with the exception of the parameters of the Hyde Amendment)~ That is on them and a higher power to judge.. Their own body... Their own choice...Their own responsibility... Their own funding... To each their OWN...
