When I was younger I considered myself pro choice but since having a baby and learning more about it, I'd consider myself more pro life.

I don't think it should be illegal but I think it's morally wrong.

It's the same as it was when I first realized what it was (as a young teen when Roe v Wade was making news).  It gives a woman freedom to NOT have a child if she doesn't want one.  That has not changed.  An early abortion is just cells to me.  And I've had 4 kids.

Then you're still pro choice. I've always been pro choice.

I've seen pictures of aborted babies and it breaks my heart. But it's much worse if the child is abused, tortured and raped. Some people know they shouldn't be parents and it's better they abort. In a perfect world they should use protection, but we all know it's not.

Even Roe realized it was wrong and spent the rest of her life on the pro life side.

I was raised Mennonite and very pro life.

As I have gotten older, had 3 children, read and done my own research I am pro choice.

Don't tell my very conservative Baptist DH, he is very strongly pro life. I just pretend to agree with him keep the peace.

I was pro choice before having kids, and even more adamant about being pro choice after having kids. Even with a relatively easy pregnancy and birth, it's still not all that easy. No one should be forced to go through that against their will. I don't care what their reasons are for abortion, I support it.

I was pro choice as a teen. I just didn't care what people did.  As a mother I am even more pro-choice than before. I don't feel like anyone should ever have to endure a pregnancy or raise a child unless they are absolutely ready for it.

Said very well. I completely agree.
