I am not looking for the good old "If she was raped..." reason. Leave that aside and tell me your real thoughts. I find this excuse for your beliefs cliche. There are women around the world who have abortions just because they didn't want a baby at that time or because their career could be ruined or just because they aren't with the baby's father anymore. I want to know beliefs outside of this one. Please remember I am only wanting an opinion. I want no fighting or name calling, just some good old opinion why. Ready? Set? GO!

Every one is their own person. They have every right to do what ever they want to their body's.

 a person's body is their own and  they should be the only one that decides what happens to it or inside it.

I believe the mother can feel when the soul comes in. I think most people who get abortions don't feel the soul yet, and I don't think that is killing.

Because what a woman does with her reproductive organs is not my business

I'm pro-choice because I don't give a rats ass if a woman wants to have 1 abortion or 5. It's not me, it's not my uterus, it's not my business. But I fully support her right to get them.

 I usually never open abortion posts because I don't really have an opinion.  Yes, I know, it is impossible to NOT have an opinion, but I really don't.  On this subject, I leave the decision to the individual.  Everyone has reasons one way or the other and I really don't need to hear them or know about it because on this one subject, I do not have an opinion....which is very strange for me because I have an opinion about everything.

I don't think an unwanted baby should be brought into the world to continue to be an unwanted child.  Period.  Just because someone CAN give their unwanted baby up for adoption, doesn't mean they will.  There might be pressure from family to keep the baby.  I don't want to see a child hurt or neglected because the mother wanted an abortion to begin with and was denied one.

It's very simple.  Even the UN Declaration on Human Rights recognizes each human being's right to bodily autonomy.  No one should be a forced gestator.  Women are people -- sentient beings, not reproduction machines or incubators.  If a woman does not want to be pregnant, for any reason at all, she should not be forced to do so.  

In short, I believe that women are people.  And people are entitled to make the most basic of decisions -- that is what to do with their own bodies, themselves.

Because it's not my job to make a choice for another one. I wouldn't want someone to make that choice for me. What gives me the right to make the choice for her?
