Pro-Life Women...

 I have a question...why is it that you think that you should have the right to make personal medical decisions for strangers? Would you share your doctor's phone number with strangers and let them make the call on treatment options for you?

ProLifers do not care about anything other than the life of the fetus. They feel the people involved, including that mother, should have no rights aside from giving birth and A: Keeping it or B: Putting it up for Adoption. 

Those are the only two options they will allow.

So because I have an opinion different from yours. yet I do NOTHING to prevent you acting on your free will, suddenly I am making decisions for strangers? Why would I allow you or anyone to make medical decisions for me? I don't make them for you. Perhaps you would have disagreed with the course of action I took during my illness. You had your opinion but please explain how in any way, you having a THOUGHT differing from mine, affected me or my course of action in any way?

Awfully broad brush you are using there. But the beauty is, you are entitled to your thoughts :)

That is not an accurate question for many women who are pro-life.

So you're personally pro-life, but wouldn't vote to make abortion illegal?

because you instantly lumped any woman that is pro-life into someone that wants to control your medical decisions.   That simply is not accurate at all.

Because not everyone who is pro-life thinks that way.

Your bias is showing.
